Sonam Kapoor Ahuja: Everything you need to know about her philanthropic activities 

In 2009, Sonam Kapoor Ahuja participated in the International Indian Film Academy Awards fashion show. The event was dedicated in support of the widows and orphans of the Indian film industry. Sonam is also an avid supporter of PETA. Being a PETA supporter, Sonam wrote a letter to the Maharashtra Home Minister urging them to stop the sale of glass coated Manjha.

During the festival of Makar Sankranti, fighter kites are used in kite flying competitions. Competitors often use glass-coated manjha’s for an added advantage to cut their opponent's kite. However, once done, the manjha stands a chance of getting in the way of birds who get strangled by the strings. Having them glass-coated can be disastrous for birds, even so far as to endanger their own life. Sonam strongly protested against this.
