Dabbang actress Sonakshi Sinha is auctioning her art work to provide ration to daily wage workers

Sonakshi Sinha has a new way to donate to the underprivileged in the current times. Due to the Coronavirus lockdown many daily wage workers have no way of sustaining their basic needs. Many stars like Salman Khan and Sonu Sood have stepped up to provide rations to such families. Now Sonakshi Sinha is auctioning her artwork to provide ration to daily wage earners.

Sinha took to her social media to share a video where she announces that her paintings will be sold to the highest bidder. The money will later be used to feed the underprivileged. In the video she said, "What good are we, if we can't do for others. My art is my safe space, my solace. It helps me centre and channelise my thoughts and just brings me so much happiness. Creating art brings a sense of calm and relief to me. And relief is what I want to bring to those for whom this lockdown has been a nightmare, people who have no income and therefore no food to feed themselves or their families, the daily wage earners. With the help of Fankind, I've decided to auction a mix of canvasses and hand sketches that I've created with all my heart. The proceeds from the auction will be donated to Give India to help provide meals the daily wagers, homeless and the less privileged."
She added saying, "Please take good care of my art. I've made it with nothing but love. And I hope it makes you proud for helping people, makes your house a little bit beautiful and makes you feel a little bit closer to me."
On Instagram Sonakshi captioned the video writing, "Bid for Good! I have teamed up with @FankindOfficial to auction my art & help raise funds to provide ration kits to daily wage workers. There is something for everyone - digital prints, sketches & large canvas paintings. The highest bidder wins! (sic)."
Actress Alia Bhatt has also shared Sonakshi Sinha's message on twitter and called it a good step.
