On April 29, Priyanka Chopra Jonas set up a fundraiser along with her husband Nick Jonas to help 'her country' tackle the COVID-19 second wave crisis. India is going through the toughest times currently with limited oxygen supply and a shortage of hospital beds for COVID-19 patients. Amid the crisis, several celebrities have come forward to help the nation. Now, Hollywood stars Robert Pattinson, Ewan McGregor and Lily Collins have come forward to raise funds for COVID-19 relief work in India.
According to Variety, the three actors have partnered with GO Campaign to raise funds for the country. Urging his followers to donate to the organization’s COVID Relief Fund, Robert said, "Think of GO as a really meaningful investment fund – they take your dollars and invest them in children, in a diverse portfolio, for maximum results." "And the common thread is those heroes, their proven track record, their commitment to serving children," he added.
"Emily in Paris" star Lily, who is an ambassador of GO Campaign along with Pattinson and Ewan, said India is in dire need of protective equipment, oxygen, medicine and food to save lives. "I have such beautiful memories of my time in India and the country will always hold such a special place in my heart. Please join me and my friends at GO Campaign to bring immediate relief to families there today," she added.
Ewan said, "As Covid rages through India, GO Campaign needs your help to provide PPE, emergency food, medicine, pulse oximeters, and resuscitators to those who need it. Any donation amount can make a difference and can help save lives."
GO Campaign is an organization dedicated to improving the lives of orphans and vulnerable children. The organization connects donors to grassroots projects aimed at changing lives and transforming communities.
