How Are Celebrities Donating to Coronavirus Relief?

Celebrities are doing a number of things to help slow down the curve and get people to stay home. John Legend and Chrissy Teigen, for instance, have used their social media reach to offer people entertainments while everyone is at home.

Other celebs are putting on quarantine live chats and released standup specials early to help encourage individuals to maintain good social distancing practices. Check out Leslie Jordan’s Instagram posts telling everyone to stay home below.

Meek Mill and Jay-Z donated more than 130,000 surgical masks to frontline workers, such as nurses and doctors. Megan Thee Stallion, in her true fashion, gave back to her hometown, Houston, by donating to the local healthcare foundation. Miley Cyrus and Cody Simpson expressed their thanks to medical workers by purchasing 120 tacos for hospital workers.

@chefjoseandres and Claire Babineaux-Fontenot have teamed up with @leonardodicaprio, Laurene Powell Jobs and @Apple to launch America’s Food Fund to help feed local communities. I was struck by the work these organizations are doing and while everyone’s priority right now is to stay safer at home, I know there are many of us looking for ways to help. I believe that America’s Food Fund will be a powerful way to make a difference for our neighbors in need and am committing $1 million to this fund to support those facing food insecurity. I am donating $10 million overall to help Americans during this pandemic in cities across the country and in areas where I grew up.
