Deadline reports that the pair reached out via monetary support, donating $1 million directly to six different areas in the community.

George and Amal Clooney’s donation is to the Motion Picture and Television Home, the SAG-AFTRA fund, and the LA Mayor’s coronavirus relief fund.

Other charities which benefited from the gesture are the NHS, the Lombardy Italy Region, and the Food Bank.

The Motion Picture and Television Fund gives monetary assistance to various cases, including health insurance, essentials, food, rent, and mental health therapy.

Earlier this year, Cardi B was one of the first celebrities to announce her concerns over the pandemic, and she gave $20,000 vegan meal replacement drinks to New York City health workers.
