When she is not playing mother to her kids or looking good for the camera, Raveena Tandon is supporting causes close to her heart. After a sizzling turn in Main Chandigarh Di Star, the actress launched a social media campaign, Mothers Against Flu (www.facebook.com/MothersAgainstFlu) to prevent flu by giving an annual vaccine to kids over six months. The Mast Mast girl also supports the Spina Bifida Association as well as the White Ribbon Alliance for Safe Motherhood.One word that describes you best?
