The Star-Studded Online Coronavirus Tournament
The COVID-19 pandemic has locked down countries as everyone tries to practice social distancing amid the crisis. The uncertainty has forced businesses to shut down and left many jobless & hungry. Coronavirus prevention efforts have made the future of many feeding programs unsure too. That’s one of the biggest issues the nation is facing right now.
However, some celebrities are not letting the precautionary measures stop them from helping those in dire need of food. The Way Back actor Ben Affleck, Contagion Movie actor Matt Damon and Tampa Bay Buccaneers Tom Brady are using technology to fight the Coronavirus chaos.
They are participating in an online game of Poker to help raise funds for Feeding America, which is the largest hunger-relief NGO in the US. You can watch live stream of the celebrity Poker game on Twitch. It has raised over $1 million (as of the time of publishing). They urged everyone to watch the game online on live streaming platform Twitch.
Join me, @BenAffleck & lots of other familiar faces for a special online poker tournament benefiting @FeedingAmerica, the nation’s largest hunger relief organization. You can watch and interact live using Twitch.
The Coronavirus charity event aims at reaching a goal of $2 million at the moment but the milestone can be raised.
Multi-billionaire philanthropist Oprah Winfrey and Leonardo DiCaprio are also donating millions to this NGO. The CEO of OWN is donating over $10 million for various big and small charities and DiCaprio’s relief fund is one of them. Once Upon a Time in Hollywood star’s NGO is called America’s Food Fund.
It’s a great initiative by influential figures of Hollywood and sports but it’s not enough during the current crisis. More is less right now. So support this effort and go ALL-IN for America.
