On Monday, Young Indian Golfer Arjun Bhati has started a “my time initiative” to encourage people to donate more into the PM CARES Fund in order to aid the battle against coronavirus pandemic. He revealed that the campaign will involve him playing golf with people and saying them to donate to the COVID-19 relief fund.
The 15 years old urged people to help the persons who really need the support this time, “During these times of coronavirus crisis, I want to donate my time for the well being of the country. I will play a round of golf with some people. I will invite some people for food at my place and thank them personally for all the donations they will make. I want you all to join this initiative as the country needs it. My time initiative plan’s target is to collect around Rs 30 lakh and donate it to the PM CARES Fund. I have already collected Rs seven lakh in two days,” Bhati said.
“Please help in this initiative as your small contribution can make a big difference. After India will be declared coronavirus free, I will host people and thank them personally for their contribution,” he added.
Arjun Bhatia won the Junior Golf World Championship in 2018. He donated Rs 3,30,000 to PM-CARES fund by selling off his torn shoes. He had also donated Rs 4.30 Lakh after giving away his 102 trophies to help the country in its fight against the coronavirus pandemic situation.
Many of the sportspersons have come forward to contribute and help the people by giving the fund in Prime Minister’s Citizen Assistance and Relief in Emergency Situations (PM-CARES).
Indian cricketer Suresh Raina gave 31 lakhs to PM CARES fund. Indian shuttler PV Sindhu, BCCI president Sourav Ganguly, and wrestler Bajrang Punia have also contributed their bit for the cause.
