More celebrities are doing everything in their power to stay safe and also help others amid the covid-19 pandemic. Celebrities across the world are donating millions to help in these trying times of Coronavirus. The latest celebrity to make a donation is Angelina Jolie, Kylie Jenner.
A national campaign in America aiming at ending children’s hunger(No Kid Hungry) announced on wednesday, Angelina Jolie has donated $1 million to provide meals for children from low income families.
Jolie stated, “as of this week, over a billion children are out of school worldwide because of the closure linked to the covid-19 virus. “Many children depend on the care and nutrition they receive during school hours, including nearly 22 million children in America who rely on food support. No Kid Hungry is making resolute efforts to reach as many of those children as possible.”
Singer-songwriter James Taylor and his wife, Kim Taylor, also contributed $1 million to Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) to support the institution’s ongoing efforts to battle the the pandemic.
“There is no question that it’s a point of pride for New Englanders to claim the MGH as their hospital – our hospital – and this is especially true today with the threat coming from a new and insidious virus,” said James in a statement. “Kim and I want to be part of this fight. We have been so inspired by the courage and sacrifice of the health care heroes in the trenches who are working so hard to protect us all.”
Kylie Jenner, also donated a whopping amount of $1 Million to support. The 22-year-old billionaire donated the money to her obstetrician-gynecologist (OB-GYN), Dr. Thais Alaibadi, and it will be used to purchase personal protective equipment for healthcare professionals working on the front lines against COVID-19.
In an Instagram post breaking the news of the reality star’s donation, Alaibadi — who is an OB-GYN at Cedars Sinai Medical Center— wrote: “I am speechless, my eyes are filled with tears of joy and my heart is overwhelmed with gratitude.
“From the bottom of our hearts, THANK YOU @kyliejenner. You are my hero.
“This generous donation will help save many precious lives. Our world is a better place with you in it. I love you so much. Thank you X a million.

I am speechless, my eyes are filled with tears of joy and my heart is overwhelmed with gratitude. I made a wish to the Universe to gather protective masks for our brave healthcare workers and today my dream came true. One of my patients, a beautiful Living Angel just donated $1,000,000 to help us buy hundreds of thousands of masks, face shields, and other protective gear which we will have delivered directly to our first responders, as too many masks at hospitals are disappearing before making their way onto the faces of our front line heroes. I have never felt more blessed to be a doctor, as helping our brave ER and ICU workers feels just as gratifying as helping my own patients. From the bottom of our hearts, THANK YOU @kyliejenner ❤️. You are my hero. This generous donation will help save many precious lives. Our world is a better place with you in it. I love you so much. Thank you X a million….
