Throughout the beginning of the Coronavirus, many industries had suffered greatly. For instance, the Tourism industry had suffered tremendously due to the halting of flights.

Another industry that has faced severe loss is the Fashion Industry due to staff layoffs, production halt, and closed stores. Many people have stopped purchasing clothes altogether because of the tight budget they have set from themselves.

Which is why, in critical times like these, people are trying to give as much as they can and offer extensive resources to help out the people that are in deep need as well as employees.

Believe it or not, Ralph Lauren has pitched in by donating $10 million for COVID-19 relief. It was a very noble move for him to be donating such a large amount to help out his people. So far, this donation has been the largest among American Fashion brands.

Other fashion leaders have been contributing in other ways such as creating masks, hand sanitizers, and much more. For instance, Egyptian local fashion king Kojak has created his own line of masks to donate to Al Abassiya hospital.

Other known brands such as Prada, Brandon Maxwell,Estee Lauder, and much more have joined together to help find contributions for this pandemic outbreak which is very kind and genuine of them to be doing so.

The donations that have been made by Ralph will go to the World Health Organization’s Solidarity Response fund. In return, WHO will be offering financial aid to the Ralph Lauren Employees due to the rough circumstances if their situation.

Another contribution will go to the company’s very own fund, Pink Pony, a cancer fund to support cancer institutions whom are extremely vulnerable at this time of the pandemic.

Aside from that, Ralph Lauren is also currently working on assessing the technical requirements for isolation gowns and medical masks to help protect being transmitted with the COVID-19, in hopes of supporting people globally.

 “At the heart of our company, there has always been a spirit of togetherness that inspires our creativity, our confidence and most importantly our support for one another. In the past weeks and months, that spirit has never wavered,” Lauren said in a statement. “We believe that no matter who you are or where you are from, we are all connected.
