Awaiting the birth of her first child with husband, tennis ace Mahesh Bhupathi, actor Lara Dutta isn’t ignoring her charitable side.

A new initiative which has her stamp of approval is called ‘Kick For Change,’ a sporting campaign supported by Bipasha Basu, Rahul Bose, Carol Gracias and Pia Trivedi. To raise funds for the programme, the NGO will auction of exclusive merchandise, signed by each of these celebrities.

Playing is simple – log on to www.kickforchange.in and donate Rs 300. This ‘kicks’ a virtual ball two metres forward along an 83 km route stretching from Colaba to Virar. Donations go to NGO Magic Bus’s programme to help less-privileged children, with an aim to help 17,000 kids.
