On Sunday, Global Citizen revealed that the event brought in over $127 million in commitments. These donations will go to support the COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund for WHO, Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations (CEPI), and UNICEF. There are also over 100 local and regional charities that will receive a portion of the donations—including Education Cannot Wait, Direct Care, Feeding America, United Way, and others. This money will be used to supplement the work of healthcare workers, and put toward developing a vaccine.
