Everyone's talking about the COUPLE of the season and drooling over their wedding. Amidst all this, comes Ranveer-Deepika's wedding card which stands out and is setting a trend.
The phrase “Opposites Attract” has never fit better than when you use it to describe Deep-Veer. Right from their first movie together, “Ram-Leela” (where they met for the first time), we saw the sparks, didn’t we?
Their chemistry is fierce and fiery to say the least, and although they are poles apart they effortlessly complete each other. Both onstage and offstage they couldn’t keep their eyes off each other, and it definitely made us swoon for more!
When they announced the date that they were going to tie the knot, the whole nation was filled with excitement and eager anticipation. We were speculating their outfits and designers, and the location that they were going to choose, and we just couldn’t stop! But what they had us realize is that they don’t just look good together they also do good together!
In 2014, Deepika Padukone was diagnosed with clinical depression, following which she underwent treatment and consequently founded an organization called “The Live Love Laugh”, that aims to raise awareness about mental illnesses and destigmatize mental illness. She has been a firm believer in taking care of your own mental health.
But she has taken it a step further, and asked all of those invited for their wedding to donate to her charity instead of getting the couple gifts. And Ranveer who always supports Deepika in everything, has also wholeheartedly supported this cause.
On their wedding card it reads,
“Directing all gifts to be donated in the form of donation to the charity we support will be greatly appreciated, Cheque in the name of Live Love Laugh foundation”.
This couple is not only #CoupleGoals but they are also setting an example for all their fans and followers. And although we can’t donate huge amounts to charity, we can still make every penny count through crowdfunding.
It’s a concept in which a crowd of people get together and fund people who are in dire need of their help. It reduces the burden of donation on one person and collects funds at a relatively faster rate.
Just like Deepika has started her own foundation, with Ranveer, to help those who are battling mental illnesses, we have another young couple, Piyush and Khushboo Jain, that have started Impact Guru, to help those who can’t afford urgent and expensive medical treatments.
Let’s follow Deep-Veer’s example and do some good, to help society too.We wish this newly-wed couple all the love, happiness and success that life has to offer them. And we hope they keep up the good work and continue positively impacting people’s lives every step of the way.
