While the world is alarmed by the advance of the coronavirus, actor Jared Leto is barely learning what is happening when there are 200,000+ infected people, more than 8,000 dead and millions locked up in their homes.
According to this celebrity, he was in a retreat in which he did not have access to any information and therefore did not know anything about what is happening.
Wow! Twelve days ago, I started a silent retreat in the desert to meditate. We were totally isolated. No phones, no communication, etc. We had no idea what was happening off-site.
We went out yesterday to a very different world. One that has been changed forever. Mind-blowing, to say the least. I am receiving messages from friends and family around the world, and I am catching up on what is happening.
Of course, there was no lack of criticism, because during the 12 days he was supposed to be in retirement, his social media accounts did have activity, so they questioned whether he was really in the desert or who is really managing his networks.
Obviously, there was no shortage of supporters, especially when he started sharing content from Headspace, a meditation and awareness development application, which opened all its material for free to help alleviate the stress that has arisen after the pandemic.
Both he and Jessica Alba are part of the investors in this platform, and in this way, they try to contribute to the best way possible to pass through this moment of global concern.
And while we’re talking about contributions, Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively donated a million dollars to Feeding America, which is a food bank, and Ben Affleck also joined in by contributing money.
Amy Adams and Jennifer Garner share videos on Instagram reading children’s stories, with which they are also collecting donations since the damages can be enormous since various sectors of production are going to stop for an indefinite time.
Musicians such as Chris Martin, Alejandro Sanz, Juanes, and John Legend are giving concerts through their social media accounts, both to raise funds and for people staying home because of quarantine to have a while of distraction.
We can all contribute something, even if we find out sooner or later what is happening.
