Aishwarya Rai Bachchan has always believed in the fact that “Giving is better than receiving”. And for the sole reason she has been donating towards cancer research and organizations and other similar organizations, every year on her birthday.
Aishwarya said “Every year I help cancer patients and this year also I have donated some amount. Every year I do something like this… It is something my parents have taught me – to do something meaningful as it makes a difference to those people. I believe in doing service for the society.”
The exquisite beauty turned 40 on November 1, and instead of a lavish birthday party, she chose to keep the celebrations low, donate to cancer patients and celebrate her birthday in a simple manner with just her close college friends and family. It was a private occasion on her big day!
Aishwarya Rai thanked her fans by saying “Heartfelt thanks to everyone for the wishes. It’s a good coincidence that my birthday comes with Diwali… It’s a celebration time. I am thankful to God for this life…Thankful to my parents for this gift of life. It means a lot to me. I embrace everything that life gives me.”
Personally, i donate blood and do some social service every year on my birthday. Because that’s what i can afford. But everyone should learn from Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. Donate money. Donate time. Donate whatever you are comfortable with. If not every now and then, then at least make it a point to do so on your birthday. It’s a good way to thank God for your life. Help the society.
