Here’s Where The Weeknd Is Donating $1 Million Amid Coronavirus Pandemic

The Weeknd’s altruism isn’t slowing down. On Monday (June 29), the XO commander donated a whopping total of $1 million with $500,000 going to MusiCares and the other half to front line hospital workers of the Scarborough Health Network. 

The Weeknd’s generous gesture is to help those affected by COVID-19. Along with his charitable donation, the After Hours singer brought back his XO face masks and matched every dollar to help raise the money. 

Earlier this month, The Weeknd shelled out $500,000 to nonprofit organizations committed to racial equality. Split between Black Lives Matter Global Network, Colin Kaepernick’s Know Your Rights Camp and National Bail Out, The Weeknd spoke on the importance of creating change for African Americans.

“Keep supporting our brothers and sisters out there risking everything to push for actual change for our black lives,” he captioned his Instagram post highlighting the receipts of his donations. “Urging everyone with big pockets to give and give big and if you have less please give what you can even if it’s a small amount.”
