Mumbai: With Christmas just a few days away, actress-entrepreneur Tara Sharma has decided to turn Secret Santa bringing smiles on the faces of children suffering from cancer.
Tara was recently approached by the Cuddles Foundation to help raise funds for their innovation 'Not So Secret Santa' campaign where in funds are collected for nutritious food baskets which are gifted to children afflicted with cancer. This year, the NGO have requested Tara to be their ‘Not So Secret Santa’.
Being a mother of two, with a show she creates and hosts in the family and parenting space, The Tara Sharma Show, Tara is often involved in initiatives that involve kids and families and she is active in various philanthropic endeavours. She is keen to help children in need of help and instantly agreed to be the Secret Santa. She will be visiting Sion hospital on 20th December to spend time with kids of Cuddles.
Tara says, “I am honoured to be part of the Cuddles Foundation's 'Not So Secret Santa' campaign this month and gift nutritious food baskets to children with cancer. The Cuddles Foundation is doing wonderful work and as with any mother or any person for that matter, it breaks my heart to see or hear of any children, or anyone suffering, but in my earlier work with Cuddles and other NGOs I have learnt from them that good nutrition and of course good care and treatment assures a very high full recovery rate, and hence if our little efforts of helping provide food baskets will help these kids, I am a hundred percent there for them. Good health for us all for all the kids and for everyone is our biggest priority and anything we are able to do to help in that goal is my priority,'' said Tara.
