Jennifer Winget is one of the most popular television actresses. She never fails to win her fans’ hearts with her acting chops and kind gestures.
The actress has always been a philanthropist by heart. While birthdays have always been special for most people, given that things have been quite turbulent for many of us in these trying times, Jennifer has shared an emotional message for her fans. Urging fans to celebrate her birthday by helping those in need, in whatever capacity they can, Jennifer revealed that celebration in this unprecedented times seems unimportant and small.
She told, “In light of what’s happening in our world at the moment, celebrating a birthday seems so trivial, small, and unimportant,” she began and added, “And I don’t see how that makes me a pessimist. This lockdown has brought in nothing I can call the usual…it is a new normal across after all… so I will say there have been better days and days that are sort of low on energy and flat. The flatter days have taught me to be more kind to myself and the better ones have really allowed me to indulge. But trust me, it’s equalized everyone to one level and I am hanging in there just like everyone else!
Furthermore, the Beyhadh 2 actress elaborated, “On another note, while the world may seem like it’s crumbling down slowly but surely; and uncertainty is the only thing we’re most certain about, I have been blessed even in these unprecedented times to have had the consistent outpour of love from my fans, family, and friends. Nothing has changed for me there and I’m grateful for it to have been constant for close to a decade now!”
“Every year, as my birthday nears, the air gets a little extra special almost like I begin to feel my friends and fans move to make it memorable for me. That feeling in itself is truly humbling and overwhelms me to quite an extent,” she exclaimed and emotionally continued, “There was a plea I made 2 years ago on my birthday to my fans that instead of sending me gifts I would much rather prefer them doing something for someone more in need; someone who would truly deserve it more than me. If tiny donation, the simplest kind gesture could end up being the blessing they were waiting on, why not? And it moves me to see my fans remember and respect this request I had made, every year.”
“Please know that, to me, there is no bigger gift than this! To receive thank you letters from animal shelters like AMTM, PFA and even the Amphan relief fund acknowledging generous donations from fans has made my heart so full. It makes me value where I am even more and blessed me by it. I would take getting older any day if I have used my position of influence wisely. And I am content spending my birthday alone, knowing that it’s being celebrated across like this.”
