DOLLY PARTON HELPED FUND A PROMISING COVID-19 VACCINE

She’s given us some of the greatest hits in country music, delivered 100 million free books through her Imagination Library to children all over the world and was even an uncredited executive producer for Buffy The Vampire Slayer. 

Now we’re learning Dolly Parton is one of the reasons pharmaceutical company Moderna has been able to develop a promising COVID-19 vaccine!

You see, in April this year, the superstar announced she was donating $1 million to create the Dolly Parton COVID-19 Research Fund to support scientists trying to find a cure for the virus.

And then this week, Moderna released data in the New England Journal of Medicine showing its vaccine is 94.5 percent effective – and that Dolly contributed to their funding.

“When I donated money to the Covid fund, I just wanted it to do good and evidently, it is! Let’s just hope we can find a cure real soon,” Dolly posted on Twitter.

While there’s still more testing that needs to be carried out, the research is giving the world some hope of ending the pandemic.

And of course, social media is in awe of Dolly’s kind heart. Check out some of the reactions below:
