Dearest ones, from my isolation booth I write to you with a plea for help! Due to the current frightening and ever changing coronavirus emergency please would you help me raise £250,000, by donating through the link in my Bio, to provide stroke and brain injury patients with essential support!! This fund will also help in freeing up the hospital beds needed to deal with the pandemic, to care for those who also need a space to heal. 100% of your generosity will fund virtual rehab clinic support in the coming weeks… a very big task and a very big ask but you are all very big hearted souls so I know you’ll want to help me help them! ❤️????❤️ @sameyouorg #togethertogethertogether
“How would you feel about having dinner with me virtually?” she said. “When you donate … 12 lucky people will join me virtually and we’re going to put together a store cupboard dinner together. We’ll cook it, and then we’ll eat it together.”
“We’ll discuss lots of things. Isolation and fear and also funny videos and you know, the fact that I can’t really cook,” she added. “So it’s going to be fun. It’s going to be interesting.”
The money raised will help stroke and brain injury patients with essential support. (RELATED: Kylie Jenner To Donate $1 Million For Masks, Protective Gear During Coronavirus Pandemic)
“100% of your generosity will fund virtual rehab clinic support in the coming weeks,” she wrote in the caption on the post. “A very big task and a very big ask but you are all very big hearted souls so I know you’ll want to help me help them!”
I would do a lot of things to eat dinner with Clarke. Meeting her in person is a huge dream of mine, but a virtual dinner would be sufficient in our current health climate. This is such a good way for celebrities to interact with their fans during the COVID-19 pandemic.
I just hope she donated some too.
