As the population tries to adjust to a life of isolation, various celebrities do their bit to make quarantine enjoyable, and of course, to help those who need it most.
Angelina Jolie, Rihanna, Kanye West, and Kim Kardashian are some of the celebrities who have donated large amounts to support various causes, and who invite other colleagues to do the same.
1. Chris Hemsworth
