Halsey has purchased 100,000 masks to be donated to medical professionals and staff amid the ongoing global health crisis.
“I am beyond privileged to be self isolating in my home, without the fear and obligation of essential work employment. Without a sick family member to care for. A child to feed. A financial crisis to navigate. So I tried to find a real way to make a difference,” she wrote on Instagram.
She said the masks “will be distributed to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, Providence Saint Joseph, LAC+USC Medical Center, and Martin Luther King Jr. Community Hospital; for the medical professionals and non medical hospital staff who are working to put a stop to this pandemic and help millions of strangers they will never meet.”
Halsey pointed to their heroism for “working to put a stop to this pandemic and help millions of strangers they will never meet” and urged people to donate to GiveDirectly, which helps low-income families.
“Please continue to stay home, if you can,” she said, echoing the calls from medical experts and governments alike to social distance. “If you are on the frontlines, my heart is with you. And I will be continuing the fight to help you get the support and resources you need.”
