Young golfer sells his trophies for Covid 19 donation
Be it superstars, sport stars or common people, all have contributed to PM Cares – a fund created by the government to meet the Coronavirus expenses. But there’s one young lad who stands out.
Young Indian golfer Arjun Bhati is the latest sportsperson to join the bandwagon. The teenage sensation donated Rs 4.30 lakh towards the cause. But the 15-year-old has gone a step further and made the biggest sacrifice that an athlete could ever think of making to raise this money.
Bhati has sold all the trophies, which includes 3 world golf championship titles and national championship, to raise money for the Prime Minister’s Citizen Assistance and Relief in Emergency Situations (PM-CARES) Fund which Narendra Modi has set up to provide relief to the affected people.
Bhati, who hails from Greater Noida, revealed that he sold all of his trophies to his relatives and friends of his parents to raise money.
“As you all know, our country is going through a tough time, a difficult situation has arisen. I would like you all to come forward in helping the country. Do contribute in whatever capacity you can. In the last 8 years, I had won 102 trophies, I gave them to get some money and now I have contributed Rs 4 lakh and 30 thousand to the PM-CARES Fund. I would like everyone to utilise this time and follow self-isolation,” Bhati said.
Now that’s some gesture we say.
