James McAvoy Asks People To Donate To India Amid COVID-19 Crisis
Hollywood star James McAvoy has appealed to his fans and followers to send out donations to India as the country struggles with the "massive" shortage of oxygen during the second wave of the coronavirus pandemic. The actor, best known for films like the "X-Men" and "Unbreakable" series, shared a link to a crowdfunding campaign on Instagram on Monday "to help purchase oxygen concentrator machines and other medical supplies to help support India".
McAvoy wrote in the caption "India needs help. You can help...donate what you can if you can. Link to just giving page in my Bio. @daivikfoundation".
In his video message, the 42-year-old star said one of his friends is seeking to send help to India as quickly as possible.
"I think everyone is aware of the situation in India right now. And, it's really bad. There is a massive, massive crisis and there is not enough oxygen. A doctor friend of mine is getting oxygen where it's needed as quickly as possible," he said.
"If you have money, brilliant. If you don't, tell someone else and spread the word, just your attention is appreciated. Hope the situation in India is better soon. All the best, hope you are healthy and well," McAvoy added.
