Chiru gives Rs 10 lakh to Lawrence's trust

Proving that he is a man of heart, Megastar Chiranjeevi has donated Rs 10 lakh to Raghava Lawrence's newly-established charitable trust in Hyderabad.  The cheque was given to the choreographer-director-actor by Allu Aravind during a film event.

"People say that charity should begin from us.  So far, I have financed the education of 60 children, whose boarding is also taken care of by me.  With the help of donors, I have financed the heart surgeries of about 150 ailing children.  It's only because of my mother that I do charity.  She has brought me up as a person who thinks about others," Lawrence said on the occasion.

Before accepting the donation of Rs 10 lakh from Megastar, Lawrence made it a point to donate Rs 50 lakh from his pocket toward his own charity.  "I should stand as an example by donating my own money.  Only then can I expect others to join my efforts," Lawrence said.
