While the message of ‘stay at home’, isolation and quarantine are being spread across, many have been risking their lives in the battle against COVID-19.

She added, “So we decided to help and bring hope to the people who need it at this time. I know we can’t solve this problem on our own, but even the smallest gestures make such a big difference, so donating 100,000 dollars in total to women who are rising above everything thrown their way, because when a woman puts her mind on something, she has the power to heal and change the world, So if there’s a woman who’s going the distance in these difficult times, whether she is a member of the service industry, large companies or small business owner or someone fighting on the frontlines, nominate her, we want to highlight her story and commemorate her.”

The world needs our help more than ever. These organizations are doing amazing work by helping those impacted by #Covid19. They are feeding the hungry (including children out of school), supporting doctors and first responders, helping low income and homeless communities, and supporting our colleagues in the entertainment industry. Nick and I have already donated to these charities: @unicef, @feedingamerica, @goonj, @doctorswithoutborders, @nokidhungry, @give_india, @sagaftra, @iahvofficial, @friends_of_aseema, and #PMCares Fund. Thank you for everything you are doing. They need your support too, and we would implore you to donate as well. I have linked to each org with a swipe up in my stories...no donation is too small. Together we can help the world beat this. ❤️ @nickjonas
