Hollywood legend and the former governor of California is leading by example in the fight against the spread of novel Coronavirus.
The actor and politician made the announcement about his donation through his social media, stating that he believes in doing rather than complaining about a problem.
"I donated 1 million dollars, and I hope that all of you who can will step up to support these heroes," Schwarzenegger declared in his social media post.
He further suggested that every one of us should "do their part" in this ongoing fight against the pandemic. He also termed the healthcare workers, who are putting their lives on risk at the hospitals, the "real action heroes."
The post that Schwarzenegger shared also showed that the Frontline Responders Fund has so far gathered around $2 million out of targeted $5 million.
Created on "GoFundMe," the fund includes other renowned personalities including Ron Conway, Rob Solomon, and Edward Norton in its fundraising team.
Prior to going into self-isolation, Schwarzenegger expressed his sadness in an interview with "NBC4" after finding out that the Governor's office disallowed fans from attending Arnold Sports Festival due to the coronavirus outbreak.
“So, we are team players. We go and do exactly that he has asked us for.”

In recent times, several celebrities have made significant contributions to support the people fighting the pandemic as well as those who are affected by it.
Recently, "Deadpool" star Ryan Reynolds also donated $1 million dollars alongside Blake Lively to support Feeding America and Food Banks Canada.
Similarly, another popular celeb, Rihanna, also recently donated $5 million via her Clara Lionel Foundation to support the prevention of coronavirus.
The foundation is dedicated to aiding local food banks and providing protective equipment to the frontline health workers and diagnostic labs.
