Fans have to donate a minimum amount of Rs 300 or multiples thereof and at the end of the campaign period, one fan will be randomly selected to bake a cake with the Udta Punjab actress.
"The welfare of animals is a cause I truly believe in and funds raised through this unique experience will support World For All, a charitable organisation based in Mumbai that works towards creating a better and safer environment for the cats and dogs living on our streets," Alia said in a statement.
Effectively, 70% of the donations will go to World For All; an NGO which Alia is closely associated with. This Mumbai-based animal welfare organisation has revolutionised the model of stray animal adoptions.
"As an animal lover and a pet-parent myself, animal welfare is a cause that is close to my heart and I am so glad that with Alia's association, Fankind is able to help spread the message about the importance of animal welfare and can raise funds for World For All," Anshula said.
Earlier, Varun Dhawan pitched in to raise funds for farmers in Maharashtra through Fankind by playing a game of paintball with the winning contestant.
