Global icon Priyanka Chopra has always tried to extend support in testing times and has always been generous with her donations. She supports many causes from Children, Civil Rights, Conservation, Creative Arts, Economic/Business Support, Education, Environment, Fair Trade, Gender Equality, Health, Human Rights, Hunger, Oceans, Peace, Poverty, Slavery & Human Trafficking, Water, to Women.

Later that month she asked her fans to nominate women who have gone the distance during a time of crisis. The actor will be donating $100,000 in total to women whether they are in the service industry or serving in the security forces.

Priyanka and Nick donated an undisclosed amount to 10 charities including Prime Minister’s Citizen Assistance and Relief in Emergency Situations Fund (PM-CARES), UNICEF, Goonj, Doctors Without Borders, No Kid Hungry, and SAG-AFTRA.
