Pink donates US$1 million to COVID-19 causes after recovering from the virus
The singer and her three-year-old son were tested negative a few days ago.
Pink and her three-year-old son spent two weeks in self-isolation after testing positive for COVID-19. Before that, the family was already staying at home. They were tested negative a few days ago.
The experience made the singer grateful that her doctor was able to get her and her son, Jameson, tested. But she also blasted the US government for “not make testing more widely accessible” in a long Instagram post on Saturday (Apr 4).
“This illness is serious and real. People need to know that the illness affects the young and old, healthy and unhealthy, rich and poor, and we must make testing free and more widely accessible to protect our children, our families, our friends and our communities,” she wrote.
The three-time Grammy Award winner added that she would be donating US$1 million (S$1.44 million) – half to the Temple University Hospital Emergency Fund, “in honor of my mother Judy Moore, who worked there for 18 years in the Cardiomyopathy and Heart Transplant Center”; and the other half to the City of Los Angeles Mayor’s Emergency Covid-19 Crisis Fund.
She also thanked healthcare professionals and “everyone in the world who are working so hard to protect our loved ones”.
“You are our heroes! These next two weeks are crucial: please stay home. Please. Stay. Home.”
