Meet Actress Priyanka Chopra : Charity Auction on Ebay India

Want to spend a day on the film sets with actress Priyanka Chopra? An auction on Ebay India, the online auction house, is running bids to help the auction winner spend a day with top Indian bollywood actress Priyanka Chopra.

Priyanka Chopra (images), a former Miss World, will donate all proceedings from the charity auction to a reputed NGO called Nanhi Kali which helps educate the girl child in rural and urban India. The auction featured on the front page of Ebay India, has a current bid close to 2.5 lacs rupees, with 37 bids and celebrity auction will close on August 20. It would be interesting to note how much the winning auction bid will be.

The winners wish to meet celebrity actress Priyanka Chopra will be fulfilled in Mumbai on or before November 30, 2006 (at your own travel expense!). The charity auction is being managed by Percept D’Mark, celebrity management agents to Priyanka Chopra.

This is an interesting way by which celebrities can do fundraising for their charity and social causes they support. It gives all bidders an equal opportunity to win, while generating revenue and publicity for the charity.
