In the midst of this global health crisis, many companies and celebrities are stepping up, using their resources and influence to help those impacted by the pandemic and support the medical community.
One of those celebrities is Game of Thrones actress Emilia Clarke, who is working through her charity, Same You, to create a COVID-19 emergency response fund. Donations through this fundraising campaign will fund at-home care for those who have suffered a brain injury or stroke, in an effort to free more hospital beds for those with COVID-19.

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
To help incentivize donations, Khaleesi herself is hosting a dinner party for 12 lucky, randomly selected donors (via livestream, of course). For a chance to be part of the dinner party, you must donate any amount of money by April 9, and the gift cannot be anonymous. Visit this fundraising link to learn more about SameYou’s efforts and to donate.
