“We often throw glamorous birthday parties for our friends and family members but we never care about the people who can’t enjoy such luxurious. To make my birthday special I planned to step out of my home and spend a day with kids who doesn’t get privilege within their family because of their medical condition,” she said while talking to media at the event.
