Since the start of the coronavirus pandemic, celebrities and artists have urged people to stay at home to prevent the spread of COVID-19. However, some have been criticized for saying a lot of pretty things without actually contributing.
Rihanna, apparently, is not one of them because she and Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey have donated a large sum of money to help in the fight against the coronavirus. It is claimed that she and Jack Dorsey donated $ 2.1 million each to the Mayor’s Fund for LA.
The resource fund, among its many functions, will also help victims of domestic violence in Los Angeles. An additional $ 4.2 million will provide security and shelter to approximately 90 different people in 10 weeks.
According to some sources, one of the consequences of the coronavirus pandemic is its effect on cases of domestic violence, which have increased since the start of the economic closure. This has had repercussions for those who live in houses where they have no other place to stay.

In addition, It is aslo claimed that many shelters continue to keep their doors open, but they generally refuse about 90 people a week. Earlier this month, Dorsey announced a billion dollar donation to the relief fund through its stake in Square.
The Jay-Z Shawn Carter Foundation also donated $ 2 million to help undocumented workers and children belonging to health workers and other emergency workers. The fund will also help those who have been incarcerated, the homeless and the elderly in New York and Los Angeles.
George and Amal Clooney, who revealed a million dollar donation earlier this week, are other stars for making large donations. The two celebrities sent money to various organizations, including SAG-AFTRA and the Lebanese Food Bank, among others.
Also, Stars such as Miley Cyrus and Cody Simpson sent 120 tacos to healthcare workers at their local hospital, and Tyler Perry offered to pay for customers’ groceries at a grocery store in Atlanta, Georgia.
