AceShowbiz - Octavia Spencer is donating breathing monitors to medical facilities in Alabama and New York caring for Covid-19 patients.
The 47-year-old Hidden Figures actress confessed she felt "helpless" amid the global coronavirus pandemic, and took to Instagram on Tuesday, April 28, to reveal she'd decided to inject funds into machines for healthcare services in a bid to fight the virus.
"I, like many of you, have felt helpless in knowing how to help during this time," she wrote. "Seeing what is happening in the communities that I love, I have teamed up with @Mikucare to donate monitors to nursing and medical facilities in Alabama and New York to provide much needed relief to nurses as they navigate care for COVID-19 patients."
She continued: "Please everyone do your part to stay safe and stay home in order to protect yourself and the ones you love most and I hope we can all find ways – small and large – to give back to our neighbors, family, and those on the frontlines."
Numerous stars, including Blake Lively, Ryan Reynolds, Jay-Z, Meek Mill, Kylie Jenner, Ciara and Russell Wilson have been donating to worthy causes amid the coronavirus pandemic, offering up millions of dollars in cash funds, and much needed medical supplies like protective clothing and face masks for workers treating Covid-19 patients.
