What does Sonam Kapoor want for her birthday? The answer to that may surprise you! It is not clothes or shoes, though I am sure she would love some, what girl wouldn’t, it is actually a donation. Sonam has requested that for her birthday all of her friends donate to a cause that is close to her heart. She said, “It is my privilege to be associated with Ogaan Cancer Foundation and play a part in spreading breast cancer awareness. Everyone seems to know someone with breast cancer – I lost an aunt to it. I’m very happy to support the OCF team, which has shown earnestness and a sense of dedicated purpose. I hope I can make a difference in my own way.
Therefore this year on my birthday I urge friends, family and fans who wish to gift me to do so by donating to this cause.”
