The coronavirus pandemic shows no signs of ending anytime soon, leaving people from all around the globe home-bound in self-isolation, many of them without jobs and struggling to get proper healthcare. These are the things one small group of people doesn't really have to worry about⁠—the rich. Affluent celebrities have it way easier than most regular people, from easy access to coronavirus testing and qualified medical attention to being able to spend self-isolation in million-dollar mansions filled with all sorts of entertainment.

Despite some of them complaining and ignoring how privileged they are, there are also those who acknowledge the horrible position most people were put in by the crisis. To help alleviate the pressure posed by the pandemic, many famous people have joined forces to battle COVID-19 with generous donations. We here at Bored Panda gathered a list of well-known people who decided to lend a helping hand during the crisis. From providing hospitals with much-needed medical equipment to supporting the unemployed and low-income families through food banks, these celebrities demonstrated their compassion during tough times.

Zion Williamson Pledged To Cover The Salaries Of The Smoothie King Center Employees For 30 Days

View this post on Instagram

The people of New Orleans have been incredibly welcoming and supportive since I was Drafted by the Pels last June, and some of the most special people I have met are those who work at smoothie King Center. These are the folks who make our games possible, creating the perfect environment for our fans and everyone involved in the organization. Unfortunately, many of them are still recovering from long term challenges created by Katrina, and now face the economic impact of the postponement of games because of the virus. My mother has always set an example for me about being respectful for others and being grateful for what we have, and so today I am pledging to cover the salaries for all of those Smoothie King Center workers for the next 30 days. This is a small way for me to express my support and appreciation for these wonderful people who have been so great to me and my teammates and hopefully we can all join together to relieve some of the stress and hardship caused by this national health crisis. This is an incredibly resilient city full of some of the most resilient people, but sometimes providing a little extra assistance can make things a little easier for the community.

Giannis Sina Ougko Antetokounmpo is a Greek professional basketball player, he was born in Athens, Greece to Nigerian parents and spent his childhood being stateless. Though I could say a lot about the difficulties obtaining Greek citizenship for refugees I won't. But do take a look at that face, that is the face of a migrant, of a refugee. We are of a lot of different nationalities, living in a handful of continents, and there are a few different skin colours. All of us are human beings.

Kevin Love Donated $100,000 Through The Kevin Love Fund To Go Toward Compensating Workers At The Rocket Mortgage Fieldhouse

View this post on Instagram

Everyone reacts differently to stressful situations. And the fear and anxiety resulting from the recent outbreak of COVID-19 can be extremely overwhelming. Through the game of basketball, we've been able to address major issues and stand together as a progressive league that cares about the players, the fans, and the communities where we work. I'm concerned about the level of anxiety that everyone is feeling and that is why I'm committing $100,000 through the @KevinLoveFund in support of the @Cavs arena and support staff that had a sudden life shift due to the suspension of the NBA season. I hope that during this time of crisis, others will join me in supporting our communities. Pandemics are not just a medical phenomenon. They affect individuals and society on so many levels, with stigma and xenophobia being just two aspects of the impact of a pandemic outbreak. It's important to know that those with a mental illness may be vulnerable to the effects of widespread panic and threat. Be kind to one another. Be understanding of their fears, regardless if you don't feel the same. Be safe and make informed decisions during this time. And I encourage everyone to take care of themselves and to reach out to others in need -- whether that means supporting your local charities that are canceling events, or checking in on your colleagues and family.
