Influencers are definitely the stars of today! They have a huge audience and millions of followers online. It is always heart-warming to see privileged people help others who are at a disadvantage and recently we have seen many influencers do so. Here are a few Indian influencers who have used their position to call attention towards overlooked issues in our country and raise funds for important causes. Isn’t it amazing to see talented influencers do their bit for society and have a charitable mindset? Check out these 7 Influencers who leveraged their position to do social good!
Ted The Stoner is one page that we all know about! Apart from posting funny and relatable content, Ted has been doing a lot of good through his page. Apart from frequently raising his voice against animal brutality, he has got over 12 thousand stray dogs adopted so far, how heart-warming is that?
Ashish is one of the most sought-after content creators and has a huge fandom on digital mediums like Instagram and YouTube. He decided to donate 1 Lakh each (total 2 lakhs) towards Assam and Bihar’s CM Relief Fund respectively so that he can help out the people of the North-East (who were facing terrible floods). This surely created a positive impact on the people!
In the third episode of Bhuvan Bam’s series of ‘Titu Talks‘, he took a bold step and decided to visit the slums of Mumbai. The idea behind featuring them in the video was to acknowledge the fact that labourers, migrants, and other less privileged people in the society are facing problems and it’s our duty to listen, understand and share their story. We love how he understands that you don’t always need money to help others out, a simple act of kindness is enough!
Ranveer and his company Monk – Entertainment recently ran a campaign on Ketto and helped raise more than 12 Lakh rupees. The main idea behind this was to provide PPE kits to independent doctors and smaller hospitals. This certainly helped so many doctors combat the pandemic effectively.
Nikunj Lotia a.k.a @beyounick is a famous face amongst the youth and believes in silently doing good for society. Amidst the pandemic, he decided to help people out by distributing food as well as donating money to the needy. Moreover, he also took part in multiple fundraisers and crowd-funding campaigns.

I DID IT! I chopped my hair!🥺💛 If you’re shocked, know that I myself am still trying to process it, even though I’ve been building up the courage for over 2 years. Given the fact that I’m a punjabi who was never allowed to cut her hair short, convincing my parents was very difficult but who can say no, when it’s for a good cause? I’m donating the chopped locks away to @hairforhopeindia all 18 inches of it! The idea is to convert the donated hair into wigs for chemo patients. As if the distressing side effects of chemotherapy isn’t enough, cancer patients also have to battle crippling self-esteem issues. If you’ve seen synthetic hair wigs, you’d know how artificial they look which is what makes real hair wigs expensive. So why must one throw away all that hair when it can be made into a symbol of hope for a struggling person? It costs nothing! If there’s anything we’ve learnt during this pandemic, it’s to help each other and be kind.🤍We’ve seen people rising to help others. And nothing makes me happier than in knowing that I’ve taken a step in doing that too!✨ And it definitely won’t be the last, if you have the power to make someone happy. Do it. The world needs more of that.🌸
Meghna is a widely popular influencer among the youth today so whatever she does has a huge impact on thousands of fans. She recently chopped off 18 inches of her gorgeous tresses in order to help a foundation make wigs for chemo patients. Positive steps like these really restore our faith in humanity!
Madan Gowri is an immensely popular content creator and he decided to use his position to help educate less-privileged students. He collaborated with superstar Supriya’s Agaram Foundation and conducted a motivational session for more than 200 college grads. He gave valuable insight on how to deal with the pandemic and move ahead in their career.
Krissann has always had the dream of providing free education to 1000 underprivileged kids and she made that happen with the help of Earth Angels Welfare Foundation! She has not only helped raise funds for the NGO but has also actively taken part in reaching out to the kids and providing education.

#onemillionmaskmission I am glad to be associated with a project like this. Taking the streets, distribution masks, and interacting with people made me realise there is so much we can do for our country. "Karm karo, fal ki chinta mat karo" #addylovers #team07 : @beyondmusicindia @veermotani @pakkhihegde @hardik.tailor.792 @myqyuki
Adnaan’s new track ‘Ro Ro Ke Guzre Din‘ recently came out and it promotes a beautiful message of suicide prevention.
