It is noted that the Irish made the largest donations to the Navajo and Hopi Families Relief Fund (indigenous peoples living in the United States. – Ed.) as a token of gratitude for the help these peoples provided to Ireland during the Great Famine that occurred on the island in 1872.

The top five also includes the US, UK, Canada and Australia. Donations were received by organizations associated with the fight against COVID-19 and for universal equality. The most successful fundraising campaign was conducted by an American government fund, which raised $44 million to feed the needy in the United States.

Twitter founder Jack Dorsey gave the largest amount of personal money ($1 billion) to the fight against coronavirus. Thus, he became the most generous donor both in absolute amount and in proportion to his fortune.

Earlier, on November 24, Russian President Vladimir Putin awarded 98-year-old Zinaida Korneva, who raised more than 4.5 million rubles to help medical workers in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic.

The fact that a veteran of the Great Patriotic War from St. Petersburg organized a fundraiser on the website of the All-Russian Public Organization of War and Labor Veterans became known in June. The money was sent to at least 143 families of deceased health workers.

The significance of Korneva’s initiative was even noted at the UN.
