Emilia Clarke auctions virtual dinner for COVID-19 relief
The actor has sought people worldwide to donate money to her charity SameYou, of which, 12 donors will be randomly selected for a virtual dinner with her
Actor Emilia Clarke, popular for her role as Daenerys Targaryen in Game of Thrones, is auctioning a virtual dinner with her in exchange for donations towards coronavirus relief.
The actor has sought people worldwide to donate money to her charity SameYou, of which, 12 donors will be randomly selected for a virtual dinner with Clarke. The new initiative of the organisation, which assists people recovering from brain injuries and strokes, aims to make beds for coronavirus patients and help people recover from brain injuries at home in order to free up more beds, say reports.
"We'll cook it together and eat it together. And we will discuss lots of things — isolation and fear and also funny videos. And, you know, the fact that I can't really cook. So it's going to be fun," Clarke said in an Instagram post. She is hoping to raise 250,000 pounds ($309,358) for the cause.
Clarke founded SameYou after revealing that she had suffered from two brain aneurysms in the early days of Game of Thrones.
