Coming as a latest from her NGO which claims to provide medical support to women and children, Samantha Ruth Prabhu on Sunday said that her foundation Pratyusha Support is putting a lot of items used by actors under the hammer to raise funds for the cause. The actress shared her enthusiasm on Twitter, even giving a “sneak peek” with a photo, of how the organisation will start raising money.

“We have been working hard and @PratyushaOrg and I are beyond excited to announce a grand auction of items from iconic films used by your favourite stars. Details of the auction will be announced soon,” she posted on Twitter.

She also tweeted out a picture of police Khakis worn by Pawan Kalyan from the blockbuster movie Gabbar Singh which might show up in the list of items to be auctioned by the NGO.

The actress, earlier in August, had reportedly started the NGO with the help of her three doctor friends. The foundation claims to provide “medical support for underprivileged women and children”. In 2013 she held a fund raiser to gather awareness about her foundation. To fight for the cause she had auctioned her personal items and memorabilia from movies too.

In 2015, the NGO had reportedly collaborated with Vijayawada hospitals and a UK hospital to provide cardiac surgeries to 15 children in the city. In August this year, Samantha also worked with a hospital to help a five-year-old kid with a prosthetic limb after she lost her leg in an accident.

“Make a list. We are listening. #foragoodcause #putyourmoneywhereyourmouthis,” Samantha said while signing off.
