Dolly’s $1M Donation

Dolly Parton has always been renowned for her generosity and philanthropy, just last year she was awarded the Musicares award for person of the year. This saw her as the only Artist to ever hold the title, Theboot.com reports. Parton has also taken part in the Make A Wish Foundation and United way, but 2020 has spurred her on to donate $1,000,000 to Coronavirus vaccine research which supported the development of the Moderna vaccine, The Gaurdian reports.

The article also states that ‘Moderna has said it could potentially produce 1bn doses of the vaccine by the end of 2021 and is applying for Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) with the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA).’ In true humble Dolly Parton fashion, she has been quoted saying “I’m sure many millions of dollars from many people went into that, but I just felt so proud to have been part of that little seed money that will hopefully grow into something great and help to heal this world.”

Fair play to you Dolly, always seen to be trying to make the world a better place!
