Arnold Schwarzenegger has been doing his best to keep a positive attitude during the current global health crisis. However he took things to another level recently, with a massive show of kindness.
Schwarzenegger was initially frustrated and doubtful of the seriousness of this current situation. This was understandable, because of the fact that there initial impact in the United States affected the Arnold Sports Festival. However as the situation became more serious, he has sense changed his tune.
Arnold has now turned into an advocate for keeping people safe during this crisis. He deeply appealed to the public to stay indoors, as advised by medical professionals. Furthermore, he even shared some of his favorite at-home workouts, for fellow athletes to try.
Nevertheless, things got taken to another level, when Arnold Schwarzenegger revealed that he donated $1 million dollars to charity. As he explained in an Instagram post, he donated this significant chunk of change to the Frontline Defenders Fund, to help with hospital workers during this time.
“I never believed in sitting on the couch and complaining about how bad things are, I always believed we should all do our part to make things better.
This is a simple way to protect our real action heroes on the frontlines in our hospitals, and I’m proud to be part of it. I donated 1 million dollars, and I hope that all of you who can will step up to support these heroes.”
This is an extremely noble act for Schwarzenegger to do. The reason for this GoFundMe fundraiser is to help provide protective equipment for these medical professionals during this outbreak. There is certainly a need for that right now, and he is doing a lot to help fill that hole.
