I think the OP was just giving props for a very kind, humanitarian act to help everyone.

 

I doubt the many billionaires around the world did the same.

 

You go Dolly!!Heart

Yep, it was her funding that triggered the direction of the hunt for a COVID19 vaccine.  Not only did she give the wold songs like "I'll Always Love You"' and Jolean......she also might have helped saved the world.

Not to say Dolly isn't a generous person , but it took a whole lot more than A million to develop this vaccine.

From the study published in the New England Journal of Medicine, here are the Moderna research funding sources, specifically citing Dolly's donation through Vanderbilt University:

 

Supported by the NIAID, National Institutes of Health (NIH), Bethesda, under award numbers UM1AI148373 (Kaiser Washington), UM1AI148576 (Emory University), UM1AI148684 (Emory University), UM1Al148684-01S1 (Vanderbilt University Medical Center), and HHSN272201500002C (Emmes); by the National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences, NIH, under award number UL1 TR002243 (Vanderbilt University Medical Center); and by the Dolly Parton COVID-19 Research Fund (Vanderbilt University Medical Center). Funding for the manufacture of mRNA-1273 phase 1 material was provided by the Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovation (CEPI).
