Sonam to donate 3000 kites to her school

Sonam Kapoor will donate 3000 kites along with maanja and phirkis, that aren't glass coated, to her school in Juhu, on the occasion of Makar Sakranti.

In a letter sent to the principal of her school, Sonam, who is a member of People for Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), stated that she wanted to save birds that are the most affected by the use of glass-coated kite string.

"As a child, while flying a kite with my friends, I injured myself with the maanja quite seriously. So last year, when PeTA approached me with this cause, I immediately empathised with the plight of these birds," Sonam wrote in her letter.

She decided to follow it up by sending kites and string phirkis to her school. "Although I would have loved to be there to deliver them personally, I am out of town. As a star, I feel we have a certain responsibility towards creating awareness towards the plight of animals. We need to use public platforms to highlight causes that require attention."

A PETA spokesperson says, "Kids love animals and would never knowingly harm birds. By using cotton string to fly kites, students can help urge others to stay away from glass-coated maanja, that is harmful to children who handle it. We want a nationwide ban on the use of glass-coated maanja."

The maanja used in kite-flying competitions are often coated with finely crushed glass.

Humans especially passersby on open vehicles such as bicycles and motorcycles are also at risk.
