Actor Josh Gad, who is the voice of Olaf in the Frozen films, is reading books to kids online every night as the coronavirus pandemic spreads.
Via his Twitter page, Josh is reading to kids around the world who are under quarantine or practicing social distancing. The Frozen and Beauty and the Beast star began his reading with Olivia Goes to Venice, then followed up with The Day the Crayons Quit and The Giving Tree.
Gad apparently will continue reading to kids every night as long as needed to help families get through the global health crisis. I think this is so sweet and thoughtful.
"Be an introvert, save the world" and practice social distancing, please.
If you're frustrated about social distancing, take heart in knowing that everyone – including your favorite artists – are making changes to their lives in the name of health and safety.
Shawn Mendes, Camila Cabello, Lizzo, Meghan Trainor, Bebe Rexha, Jason Derulo, Ryan Tedder and Billie Eilish along with her brother Finneas are just some of the creatives who've pledged to "press pause" on all their social activities.
Some are taking it a step further and helping in different ways like donating to organizations who can reach the population who need it most.
Justin Timberlake is stepping up to lend a hand in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic. He announced over the weekend that he would be donating to the Mid-South Food Bank in his hometown of Memphis, Tennessee. The organization helps people assemble and deliver non-perishable food to families in need.
Idris Elba has the coronavirus. The Golden Globe Award winner broke the news in a video he posted on Twitter yesterday. In the video, he says he tested positive for COVID-19. His wife, actress and model Sabrina Elba, says she feels okay but is now under isolation since learning of her possible exposure. Elba has been under quarantine since Friday after he found out he came in contact with someone who tested positive for the virus.
