Like Arnold Schwarzenegger, many stars are donating to help fight against the Coronavirus pandemic. They are movie stars, television personalities, star athletes, and simply speaking, generous people.

Although we know of some of them, keep in mind that there are those celebrities who prefer to keep things anonymous. Sandra Bullock comes to mind as someone who is very private about her charitable donations. Is she a donor to the coronavirus cause?

We don't know - like we said, she keeps these things private.
