Giorgio Armani has donated 1.25 million euros (approximately $1.4 million) to help his native Italy fight the spread of coronavirus, WWD reports.

Armani's donation was made to four hospitals — Luigi Sacco, San Raffaele, the Istituto dei Tumori in Milan, as well as Rome's Istituto Lazzaro Spallanzani — and the country’s civil defense, Protezione Civile.

The 85-year-old designer has also postponed his Cruise 2021 show, which was scheduled for April 19 in Dubai, due to overwhelming concerns over the pandemic.

Armani's donation joins those made by other luxury fashion houses including Dolce and Gabbana, who chose to support Milan-based institutions researching possible solutions, and Versace, who donated approximately $143,400 to support the Chinese Red Cross Foundation. LVMH and Kering have also made donations, which you can read more on here.
