A Beijing-based video-based social networking site, Tik Tok, has pledged $ 250 million to support frontline workers, teachers and communities affected by the Corona Virus outbreak
The site has allocated an additional $ 100 million in advertisements for companies looking to regain their activity.
Tik Tok said that the Center for Disease Control and Prevention and the “World Health Organization” will receive advertising credit of $ 15 million and $ 10 million, respectively.
The Center for Disease Control and Prevention posted on Twitter a message of profound gratitude.
Tik Tok participated with the World Health Organization previously, in producing direct awareness clips on public health and science with the voices of famous people, including the science man, Bill Nye.
The site also indicated that it is working with global partners to distribute masks and other personal protective equipment to hospitals in countries severely affected by Corona, such as Italy, South Korea and the United States.
We understand that these are difficult times for everyone, “said Alex Chow, CEO of Tik Tok.” We are committed to doing our best to help humanity. “
