The Entertainment Industry Helping People Out

However, this does not mean that they will just sit and watch people stress over the pandemic. Many celebrities and public figures are supporting people in need of assistance. TV networks and shows are donating funds and medical supplies to aid with relief efforts.
Streaming services are making their products free for some time to encourage people to stay indoors. New titles are now streaming earlier on online platforms. Social distancing is coming with re-runs of many iconic TV shows to lift people’s spirits up.

Many celebrities are helping in providing support to families in need. Lady Gaga and Taylor Swift are sending money to fans who are struggling financially due to the pandemic. Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively are donating 1 million dollars to help provide food to individuals.
Donatella Versace and Giorgio Armani are also donating to hospitals in Italy to help them treat patients better. In these times of distress, it is important that people stick together and take care of each other.
