Dolly parton is a real philanthropists who has donated in various other projects and had also funded the Moderna's COVID-19 vaccine research. The legendary country singer donated $1 million in April, and that money helped pay for Moderna's promising vaccine. 'I just wanted it to do good' she said.
Dolly Parton is one of the most famous celebs who are very much into philanthropy and they actually meant it for the betterment of the deserving. In the past, she made a lot of donations and started projects too. But most of all, she was known for the Imagination Library she built for children.
This Imagination library was built as it was Dolly's passion to improve literacy in youth around the world. Her philanthropist nature has resulted in giving children over 100 million free books since she founded the library in 1995.
Earlier this year when the Coronavirus was deepening its claws she made a donation in April of about $1 million to the Vanderbilt University Medical Center in honor of her longtime friend, Dr. Naji N. Abumrad.
At that time, the VUMC’s COVID-19 relief efforts were solely aimed to improve treatment for coronavirus patients until a vaccine was available to cure this virus.

In my book, the latest announcement of Moderna's 94.5% effective vaccine, essentially means @DollyParton cured coronavirus. pic.twitter.com/Lbt8RGojDr
Now almost half an year later, when the Moderna vaccine is found being 95% effective it is said that Dolly Parton has a great contribution in it as she has donated for the vaccine fund and has equally encouraged people who are able to donate to do so.
When she was told about her great achievement as a sponsor to the Coronavirus vaccine her response on Instagram was so simple and generous, "I’m just happy that anything I do can help somebody else, and when I donated the money to the COVID fund, I just wanted it to do good, and evidently it is. Let’s just hope we find a cure real soon.”
