American fashion giants continue to make dazzling donations for coronavirus relief.

Tiffany & Co. and AG Jeans are the latest brands to announce that they will each commit $ 1 million to organizations fighting COVID-19.

“During this global health crisis, we must all respond to the urgent needs of our global communities,” Anisa Kamadoli Costa, president and president of the Tiffany & Co. Foundation said in a statement Monday. “We are proud to support organizations that provide immediate help to communities affected by COVID-19, including our hometown of New York.”

In addition to matching employee donations to nonprofits, the jeweler will donate $ 750,000 to the COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund for the World Health Organization, overseen by the United Nations Foundation, along with an additional $ 250,000 for NYC COVID-19 from The New York Community Trust Response and Impact Fund.

Meanwhile, Los Angeles-based AG Jeans announced that it will donate $ 1 million to the COVID-19 LA County Response Fund, which will provide support to hospitals and clinics throughout the county, as well as help in implementing testing coronavirus.

Additionally, the brand has promised to continue to send pay and benefit checks to its more than 2,000 factory and retail employees during the month of April.

“We stand together as a community to resist, support, and heal each other,” the popular denim brand said in a company statement.

Last week, Michael Kors founders Jimmy Choo and Versace, along with their parent company Capri Holdings Limited, donated a combined total of $ 3 million to fight the coronavirus.
