India is bleeding, please donate, urges Priyanka Chopra on social media
London, Apr 30: International Indian actress Priyanka Chopra on Sunday urged the people worldwide to donate in this hour of crisis in India when people are dying in large numbers from a devastating second wave of Covid-19. Her husband and American singer Nick Jonas also joined her in a social media video post urging people to donate.
Posting a video of her plea on her social media handles, she wrote: "India, my home, is suffering the world’s worst Covid crisis, and we all need to help! People are dying in record numbers. There is illness everywhere, and it’s only continuing to spread and kill at great speed and scale."
"I have set up a fundraiser with GiveIndia, the largest organization on the ground in India providing Covid relief. Whatever you can spare, truly makes a difference. Nearly 40 million people follow me on here, if even 100,000 of you donate $10, that’s $1 Million, and that’s huge," she said.
"Your donation will go directly to healthcare physical infrastructure (including Covid care centres, Isolation centers, and oxygen generation plants), medical equipment, and vaccine support and mobilization"
"Please please donate. Nick and I already have and will continue to contribute. We have all seen how far and wide this virus can spread, an ocean between us makes no difference. No one is safe unless everyone is safe. It’s so heartening to see so many people stepping up to help in so many ways. We need to beat this virus, and to do that requires ALL of us. From the bottom of my heart THANK YOU!"
