Playing EXCLUSIVE: Priyanka Chopra Dishes on Her 'Enriching Experience' as a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador

Quantico's Priyanka Chopra did more than just shine on the Golden Globes red carpet, she also helped raise money for a worthy cause.

ET teamed up with Moet & Chandon's Toast for a Cause at the star-studded show, where the champagne company donated $1,000 to celebs' charities of choice. Chopra, who is a Goodwill Ambassador for UNICEF, chose to raise her glass of bubbly to the humanitarian relief organization.

"This is to UNICEF," Chopra said, toasting with ET's Kevin Frazier on the red carpet at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Los Angeles. "You're drinking it with me, come on, Kev!"

Chopra spoke with ET last month at UNICEF's 70th Anniversary Event at United Nations Headquarters in New York City when the Indian-born actress was named a Goodwill Ambassador. Chopra opened up about the impact the organization has had in changing people's lives, and how it's made "such a big difference to children around the world, which is our future, our generation, it's the world we will give to our kids."

"India is a country where UNICEF has made such a big difference and I, included with them, worked for about a decade on the ground: meeting kids, setting up programs and I see the kind of difference and empowerment it gives to especially adolescent kids who have an understanding of where the world is," she added. "So it's been such an enriching experience for me and I hope to extend it to the world now."

Prior to her Goodwill Ambassador designation, Chopra has been involved in the organization for nearly 10 years and previously served as a national ambassador in India where she was an advocate for girls. Celebrating her appointment, UNICEF Executive Director Anthony Lake said, “Priyanka Chopra is already a champion for India’s children -- and as a UNICEF global Goodwill Ambassador, she will be a force for children and adolescents everywhere.”
