The deadly virus has killed more than 5,400 people and has spread to 145,000 lives in more than 110 countries. The pandemic has also caused shutdowns and postponement of major Hollywood productions, movie releases, festivals, broadways, theatres, and even the NBA games. Many jobs have also been reprimanded to be done at home.

Millions of people around the world, including celebrities and public figures, have opted to self-quarantine at home to prevent risks of contracting the virus. People have been venturing out for medical appointments and supermarkets where they fight for essential needs such as alcohol, water, and toilet papers.

But despite the crisis that is experienced throughout the world today, celebs have been spreading positivity by giving back to those in need.

In February, Justin Bieber pledged to donate $29,000 to help with relief efforts to the Beijing Chumniao Charity Foundation, a children’s charity in China.

Stephen Curry together with his wife Ayesha Curry wrote on Instagram on March 13 that they are planning to support Feeding America as well as a local food bank in Oakland. On the same day, Blake Griffin shared his plans to donate $100,000 to help in paying the workers at Little Caesars Arena amid the crisis.

On March 15, Justin Timberlake announced on his Instagram Story that he will be donating to the Mid-South Food Bank in Memphis, his hometown while the Disney Channel actress Vanessa Hudgens also announced that she is planning to donate to Feeding America.

A day after the suspension of the 1029-2020 NBA season due to the coronavirus, Kevin Love announced on Instagram that he is committing $100,000 through his Kevin Love Fund to support the Cavs Arena and the staff who had to shift their lives after the suspension of the game season. Also, Dallas Mavericks owner, Mark Cuban announced that he will be helping the hourly workers of Dallas American Airlines Center.

On the other hand, Bill Gates and Melinda Gates have committed at least $105 million to help the global response to the coronavirus. The money that will be donated will be utilized to improve detection, isolation, treatment efforts and development of vaccines for the pandemic.

The newlyweds JJ Watt and Kealia Ohai donated $350,000 to the Houston Food Bank as their way of helping amid the coronavirus pandemic. Meanwhile, Rudy Gobert of Utah Jazz donated an amount of more than $500,000 to help employee relief fund at Vivint Smart Home Arena and for other services related to the coronavirus pandemic. The Golden State Warriors ownership together with its players and coaches, has decided to donate $1 million to a disaster relief fund benefitting Chase Center employees who were affected by the postponement of the NBA games.
