17th May 2021: Amidst the ongoing Corona wave, several entrepreneurs have stepped forward to join hands in India’s biggest fight against the deadly virus. Igniting a ray of hope, these entrepreneurs and start-ups have been doing their bit to provide help to the people in need.
Barely a year old start-up ‘Celebfie’ is also in the same league. The new-age celebrity engagement platform has partnered with several NGOs including Feeding India, Hemkunt Foundation India and Khalsa Aid to help people in these tough times.
Lot of Celebrities who are on the Celebfie platform have joint the cause. This Covid-relief initiative has emerged as a helping hand for the people in need of help and support in these turbulent times. Commencing from 13th May’21, the subscription-based platform that enables celebrities to have their own micro channel for exclusive content has slashed their prices to a flat Rs5000 per booking for a Celebrity shoutout for Business for the next 30 days, and 100% of the collected money will directly go to partnering NGOs for charity which will be used for buying medical equipment’s, oxygen concentrators, medicines, food etc for the people in need.
“These are very challenging times for us Indians as the impact of Covid-19’s second wave has hit us hard and the effect will be felt for long. I see on social media and a lot of people around me desperately requesting for help. It is great that a lot people from all over coming forward to help our people amidst these tough times and so, Celebfie in whatever small way has taken this initiative in collaboration with our humble celebrity partners to do this together for our people. I had read somewhere that “Be a blessing to someone else in need” and today that is exactly the need of the hour,” said Mr. Raminder Singh, Founder & CEO-Celebfie.
Celebfie has roped in a lot of celebrities out of their 300+ onboarded celebs in the likes of Jayati Bhatia, Vaishnavi Macdonald, Apara Mehta, Shibani Kashyap, Ambika Ranjankar, Mansi Srivastava, Unmukt Chand, Salman Ali, Nirmal Soni and Ankit Bathla for this cause.
Meanwhile, many other entrepreneurs across the country are trying to put their best foot forward to help citizens in need. There’s no denying, these entrepreneurs and start-ups have emerged as a rare beam of hope in these hard times.
Sharing the space with civil society crusaders, these start-ups are going way beyond their boundaries, carving a niche for themselves in the industry. The grit and determination shown by the organisations at personal level is paramount. Though we are yet to see the ‘end of the pandemic’, these small initiatives will surely lead us to the goal.
