Country superstar singer Dolly Parton announced that she would be donating $1 million to Vanderbilt University back in April for the development of a COVID vaccine. As it turns out, her donation helped fund Moderna’s Covid-19 research – one of the two vaccines with the most promising trials. Yes, folks, Dolly Parton might have just saved us all!
The internet absolutely loved the fact that Dolly Parton might have just helped us all… well… survive. The news that Dolly Parton’s name appears in the preliminary report on the vaccine among sponsors like the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases only makes things better!
Why are we not discussing the fact that the vaccine with the good news this morning was partly funded by Dolly Parton?
Vaccine, vaccine, vaccine, vacciiiiiiiiiiiiiine

What makes everyone love her even more is her appearance on TODAY. When she was asked about her donation, she said that she’s just happy that anything she can do can help somebody else. We need more people like her!

Thank you, Dolly Parton!
There’s an idea in Judaism that there are 36 special people in the world at all times who secretly maintain the world.
I have begun to suspect that Dolly Parton may be one of them.
