Meghan Markle Reportedly Does Charity Work Because of Her Modest Upbringing
The kindhearted gestures Meghan Markle displays through her charity work is allegedly inspired by her modest upbringing.
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have shown how committed they are to helping people during the ongoing novel coronavirus pandemic.
As it turns out, however, the couple’s most recent act of delivering meals for people living with critical illnesses was inspired by Meghan’s mother, Doria Ragland. According to a People report, a source stated that:
“Meghan didn’t have much when she was a child, but her mom made sure they always gave back.”
It was, in fact, Doria who gave the former Duchess of Sussex the idea to volunteer for Project Angel Food, which is a non-profit outfit which cooks, prepares, and delivers meals to those in need.
Meghan and Harry have ensured that they limit their movements as they took up residence in a secluded compound after their relocation from Canada to L.A.
Speaking about Meghan’s involvement with the project, the charity’s executive director, Richard Ayoub, told People that Meghan thought it was a brilliant idea for her to give back to the charity for Easter.
Richard added that it was an honor to have Meghan and Harry partake in the event of giving out meals for Project Angel Food.
The executive director also noted that the celebrity couple wanted to reduce the workload of the charity’s drivers as they usually made deliveries to between 50 to 60 people a day.
Even though Meghan and Harry were only able to six deliveries the first time around, they still showed up for a second time and ended up taking 14 deliveries.
The news of their charitable acts came soon after People confirmed that the royal couple donated more than $112,000, which was generated from their royal wedding broadcast to the U.K. charity, Feeding Britain.
It was previously announced that any excess profits made from the BBC broadcast of their May 2018 ceremony would be donated to any charity of the couple’s choosing.
It seemed the parents of one have been enjoying doing their little bits during the pandemic as they isolate in their Los Angeles home.
According to People, Meghan and Harry have ensured that they limit their movements as they took up residence in a secluded compound after their relocation from Canada to L.A. last month with their son, Archie.
