Legendary actor Arnold Schwarzenegger actively takes part in awareness campaign to tackle the spread of COVID-19 pandemic.
Arnold Schwarzenegger has been using social media to urge fans to follow instructions of the health experts and the government officials in bid to combat COVID 19.
The actor has taken his fight against the pandemic to the next level by putting his money to good use.
The Hollywood star has donated $1 million to a GoFundMe campaign called Frontline Responders Fund.
This campaign works to get critical supplies like surgical masks, surgical gowns, gloves and other crucial supplies to doctors, nurses and hospital staff who are combating this disease.
When Arnold Schwarzenegger’s generosity was highlighted on social media, here’s what the ex-governor of California had to say: “I never believed in sitting on the couch and complaining about how bad things are.
I always believed we should all do our part to make things better. This is a simple way to protect our real action heroes on the frontlines in our hospitals, and I’m proud to be part of it.”

This is a simple way to protect our real action heroes on the frontlines in our hospitals, and I’m proud to be part of it. I donated 1 million dollars, and I hope that all of you who can will step up to support these heroes. Go to the link in my bio to help out.
On the other hand, Hollywood’s Angelina Jolie has donated one million dollars to fight child hunger amid the coronavirus spread.
Angelina Jolie and longtime humanitarian pledged the sum to ‘No Kid Hungry’ organisation, which will provide meals for children from low-income families across the US.
Jolie said: “As of this week, over a billion children are out of school worldwide because of closures linked to coronavirus.
“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.”
No Kid Hungry revealed it had already given $2 million to 78 organizations in 30 states to help feed vulnerable children.
Oscar-winning star is not the only celebrity to help with the relief effort amid the Covid-19 outbreak.
