Celebrity Schedules: Feb 2020 / Coronavirus Donation List

All dramas have ceased filming and work is sparse, so I’m going to use this opportunity to highlight the following celebrities for donating to efforts to contain the ongoing coronavirus outbreak. I know there’s a lot of uncertainties about whether donations are being properly used, but that doesn’t diminish the goodwill of the donators. If you chose to donate to anything, though, definitely do your homework and making sure that the money is actually well-spent.

The list is too long so I used google translate, feel free to leave corrections and additions in the comments.
