Kareena took to Instagram to announce the same, and wrote, “At difficult times like these, we need to come together and help each other. We both have taken steps to do just that and have pledged our support to UNICEF, GIVE INDIA and the International Association for Human Values (IAHV). We urge those of you who can do the same. United we stand. Jai Hind,” and attributed it to herself, Saif and their son, Taimur.

Priyanka Chopra Jonas and Nick Jonas too announced that they have donated to a total of 10 causes. Priyanka took to Instagram and uploaded three posts which dispensed details about these organisations and asked people to donate if they are in the capacity to.

The caption was common to all three posts. It reads: “The world needs our help more than ever. These organizations are doing amazing work by helping those impacted by #Covid19. They are feeding the hungry (including children out of school), supporting doctors and first responders, helping low income and homeless communities, and supporting our colleagues in the entertainment industry. @nickjonas”

The world needs our help more than ever. These organizations are doing amazing work by helping those impacted by #Covid19. They are feeding the hungry (including children out of school), supporting doctors and first responders, helping low income and homeless communities, and supporting our colleagues in the entertainment industry. Nick and I have already donated to these charities: @unicef, @feedingamerica, @goonj, @doctorswithoutborders, @nokidhungry, @give_india, @sagaftra, @iahvofficial, @friends_of_aseema, and #PMCares Fund. Thank you for everything you are doing. They need your support too, and we would implore you to donate as well. I have linked to each org with a swipe up in my stories...no donation is too small. Together we can help the world beat this. ❤️ @nickjonas
