Even amidst her wedding preparations, Priyanka Chopra found time to be a part of an event by Facebook that created awareness and raised funds for social causes. Facebook India and Priyanka Chopra's #SocialForGood Live-Athon was a platform for people to support causes they really care about. In fact, Priyanka Chopra's session garnered over three million views and over 15,244 donations (which is more than a donation per second) from over 57 cities across the globe.

An excited Priyanka Chopra said, “It was an amazing day and I am overwhelmed by the support we have received not just from our panelists and performers but also from all those who tuned in to the Live-Athon.  The conversations were insightful and impactful and what made the day a success was the number of donations received for each of these important causes.  It showed that we care and that we can use #SocialForGood.  Thank you to the team at Facebook and all the change makers who gave their time to us today and who made this initiative possible.  `It is only apt that on #GivingTuesday, a global day of giving fuelled by the power of social media and community, our initiative was able to harness the power of individuals to work towards a better tomorrow for us all.  Let's pledge to do our bit and work relentlessly towards building a stronger, safer and a more supportive world. she added."
