While many companies have contributed I will be talking about a few major companies in this article.  

Rockstar Games is a company that has created such games as Grand Theft Auto 5, Red Dead Redemption and Bully. They have shown support for the community and offered to donate 5% of all earnings from their online sales to individuals who may be struggling in the community due to COVID-19. 

Amazon, which is an online retailer has been asked by the UK government to help distribute COVID-19 testing kits when they, in due time become available. This is to ensure more individuals have access to these kits so the correct precautions are taken by individuals who have tested positive. Amazon, Microsoft, Alaska Airlines and Starbucks foundation have all donated to help relieve the financial pressure put on individuals due to COVID-19.

LVMH who are the owners of Louis Vuitton, Bulgari, TAG Heuer, Tiffany, and many other brands have repurposed their factories which usually make products such as perfume into making hand santisers following the shortage to ensure that health professionals are protected while risking their lives to keep their community safe.

This is a difficult time for many people and many companies have ensured they have contributed to funding research as well as helping people who may be financially struggling due to the COVID-19 outbreak.
