Mumbai: Actor Siddharth has launched a ‘Kerala Donation Challenge’ as incessant rains continue battering the state over the last few days. The death toll has reached 324.

"I did the #KeralaDonationChallenge. It was awesome! Will you? Please?" he tweeted.

His tweet has prompted many on Twitter to share similar posts detailing their donations.

The actor’s tweet is accompanied by a letter where he implores people to help those stranded in Kerala.

He wrote, “It is our duty as Indians to do what we can to help our people in Kerala. Every rupee counts towards making a difference. I believe social media has that special power to create magical movement overnight."

Calling this #KeralaDonationChallenge, he has asked people to "post your donation proof" in order to inspire others. "

Hundreds have lost their lives and livelihoods in the last 10 days. Hundreds of thousands have been shifted to relief camps as nearly 100 dams, reservoirs and rivers have overflowed. Even as rescue operations are underway, authorities have warned of worse weather to come.
