Page Six is reporting that Angelina Jolie contributed $1 million to the No Kid Hungry organization to help the children who are out of school and don’t have access to free meals.
“As of this week, over a billion children are out of school worldwide because of closures linked to coronavirus,” Jolie said in a statement to E! News.
“Many children depend on the care and nutrition they receive during school hours, including nearly 22 million children in America who rely on food support,” her statement continued. “No Kid Hungry is making resolute efforts to reach as many of those children as possible.”
Great to hear! She joins a list of other celebrities who have contributed to coronavirus-related causes.
Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard, who own a few residential buildings in LA, waived their tenants’ rent for the month of April amid financial uncertainty. They also donated $150,007.96 to No Kid Hungry.
Which is fab, but $150,007.96? That’s… a rather specific amount. I wonder what the back story is…
And then there’s Arnold Schwarzenegger who donated $1 million to the Frontline Responders Fund, which helps to provide resources given the shortage of protective equipment and medical supplies.
