Donatella Versace joins the coronavirus relief efforts

In addition to Giorgio Armani's 1.25 million euro donation to the Luigi Sacco and San Raffaele hospitals and the Istituto dei Tumori in Milan and the Istituto Lazzaro Spallanzani in Rome, Donatella Versace and her daughter, Allegra Versace Beck revealed they're personally donating 200,000 euros to the intensive care department of San Raffaele hospital in Milan to support the fight against Coronavirus.

Donatella explained, “In times like this, it is important to be united and support however we can to help all those who are in the front lines, fighting every day to save hundreds of lives. This is why, Allegra and I have decided to make a personal donation of 200,000 euros to the intensive care department of San Raffaele hospital in Milan. Our hearts go out to all those who have been affected by this disease and to all the doctors and medical staff who have been working heroically non-stop in the past weeks in the effort to take care of our loved ones. This is when we, as a society, need to stand together and care for one another.”

Donatella's donation comes after digital entrepreneur Chiara Ferragni raised 4 million euros through a Go Fund Me campaign for the same intensive care unit.
