Akshay Kumar donates Rs 1.5 Crore
On his post, the filmmaker wrote, “I would like to share one good news, Akshay Kumar sir is donating Rs 1.5 crore for building a transgender home for the first time in India. As everyone is already aware that the Larencce Charitable Trust has been initiating various projects for education, home for kids, medical and physically-abled dancers. Our trust is now entering into its 15th year. We wanted to celebrate this 15th year by initiating a new project for uplifting the transgender community by providing shelter for them. Our trust has provided the land and we were looking forward to raising funds for the building, so during Laxmmi Bomb shoot, I was talking to Akshay Kumar sir about the trust projects and transgender’s home, immediately after hearing this without even me asking he told he will donate 1.5 cores for building transgender’s home.
He added, “I consider everyone who helps as a god, so now Akshay Kumar sir is a god for us. I thank him for lending his huge support for this project. Our trust next vision is to uplift transgender’s and provide shelter for them all over India with Akshay Kumar’s sir support. I thank him on behalf of all transgender’s. We will inform the bhoomi pooja date soon. I need all your blessing”
