Tangerine donated a total of 650 bed sheets to the NGOs, which are expected to significantly improve the quality of life of its beneficiaries.

Talking about the initiative, Rajiv Merchant, co-founder of Tangerine, said: "Our products beautify the homes of thousands of Indians. But we were keen on using our brand to make a difference to people in need. By donating we got the chance to help India's disadvantaged elderly rest with comfort, dignity, and a smile on their faces".

"We are thankful to our Bollywood fraternity to help us bring this initiative to life, and lending their names for the cause," he added.
