Lifebuoy, Hindustan Lever's soap brand, associated itself as a presenting sponsor for the event, which united the entire entertainment fraternity.

Advertising and sponsorship revenue from Saath Hain Hum Uttarakhand will be channelled to the hill-state relief work through two civil society organisations, Himmotthan Society and People's Science Institute.

Celebrities from top television shows of the STAR network such as Diya Aur Baati Hum, Pyaar Ka Dard Hai Meetha Meetha Pyaara Pyaara, Saraswatichandra, Savdhaan India, Devon Ke Dev Mahadev and India's Dancing Superstars were also present at the event.

Film Producers Guild, Federation of Western India Cine Employees (FWICE), TV Artists Forum, Corporate Charity Trusts and several independent industrialists and donors partnered the Independence Day marathon fund-raiser that was attended by senior leaders from the state and central governments.

Through this, the broadcaster aimed at encouraging its viewers across the globe to lend their support and donate generously for the cause through several dedicated channels. These donation lines will be open till September 7 and the entire funds collected through this period will be channelled to the two NGO partners. The use of funds will be overseen by a team of independent auditors.

"This occasion demands that people join forces to support those in need. It's heartening that people are coming together and our role is only that of a catalyst," he added.
