New Delhi, Dec 7: From her first ever saree to the 70's style outfits that she sported while promoting 'Om Shanti Om', Deepika Padukone is auctioning off "prized possessions" from her personal closet so that India can win gold at the Olympics.

The Bollywood beauty has teamed up with the online shopping club, FashionAndYou.com for the auction and all proceeds will go to the Olympic Gold Quest (OGQ).

'OGQ', the brainchild of Indian sporting legends Geet Sethi and Prakash Padukone, works to identify and fund the best and most deserving medal prospects for the Olympic Games and the cause is close to the 24-year-old actress, a National level badminton player herself.

"I am delighted to share my wardrobe with my fans through e-retailers Fashion And You. Each and every ensemble and hand bag are my prized possession and I have very fond memories of them. The funds from the auction would support 'Olympic Gold Quest' a foundation for promoting sports talent in the country, which is very close to me," said Deepika in a press statement. PTI
