The next set of lunches were very special to Lizzo as she reached out to ER staff at Henry Ford Hospital located in her hometown of Detroit, Michigan. The hospital’s official Twitter page posted a video featuring Lizzo who thanked all of the staff for their sacrifice.
“I just wanted to say thank you so much for all that you’re doing during this pandemic and it’s definitely not easy and you guys are putting yourselves on the front lines,” she said. “So, because of that, I wanted to treat y’all to a meal.”
“I love you guys, thank you so much for being the heroes in this story. And we’re staying inside and we’re praying and thinking of you every single day. God bless you.”
Another set of lunches were sent to ER staff at the M Health Fairview University of Minnesota Medical Center. Staff thanked the singer by tagging her in a photo of the group with their food.
And medical workers at the West Jefferson Medical Center located outside of New Orleans thanked the singer who sent a second personalized video like the one she made for the Henry Ford Hospital.
In an Instagram Live video posted to her page, she explained she was moved to donate food after sending a care package to a friend’s mother who is a working nurse.
“I was like, you know what? I wish I could do this for every nurse,” she said. “How can I do this for more people who are working so hard to keep all of us safe.”
On her personal Instagram account, Lizzo posted a video montage of all of the hospitals she arranged lunches for, asking fans for donations to help amid the public health crisis. Lizzo’s participation is just one of the many ways anyone can help to make life easier for those on the front lines of the virus.
