American singer-songwriter Halsey has donated 100,000 to Los Angeles hospitals who are trying their hardest to fight against COVID-19.
Musicians are doing a lot to help out in any way they can in the world in the midst of the current global pandemic. Fall Out Boy has donated $100,000 to their hometown’s relief effort in Chicago, other artists such as Senses Fail are making new music to keep us entertained during quarantine, and now pop singer-songwriter Halsey has donated 100,000 much needed masks to L.A. hospitals.
“Their determination, selflessness and empathy is the single greatest example of our capacity to love and survive as humans. I am beyond privileged to be self isolating in my home, without the fear and obligation of essential work employment.”
Halsey then revealed that she had “purchased 100,000 FDA certified 3 ply masks” that she was able to source through Orange International from Guangzhou, China, and that she was going to begin distributing them to local L.A. hospitals as their need for PPE keeps growing.
“These masks will be distributed to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, Providence Saint Joseph, LAC+USC Medical Center, and Martin Luther King Jr. Community Hospital; for the medical professionals and non medical hospital staff who are working to put a stop to this pandemic and help millions of strangers they will never meet.”
Pleading to fans, she asked for everyone to “please continue to stay home, if you can,” and that “if you are on the frontlines, my heart is with you.”
Halsey then asked fans who are able to donate to Give Directly‘s COVID-19 relief efforts stating that she “will be making a sizeable donation,” as well.
“I will be continuing the fight to help you get the support and resources you need.”
