Jared Leto Releases Star Wars-Themed Quarantine T-Shirt For Charity
Though Jared Leto initially “had no idea” about COVID-19 having spent 12 days on an isolated desert retreat, since returning back to normality the Thirty Seconds To Mars frontman and Hollywood star is doing his bit to help those affected by the virus.
He has just launched a new Star Wars-inspired T-shirt as part of his Jared Leto Cinema Club, with 100 per cent of profits being donated to the Partners In Health organisation – who “provide a preferential option for the poor in health care”. Jared will also personally match the money raised.

“After numerous requests, we created a #JaredLetoCinemaClub tee in the hope we could raise some much needed support for COVID-19,” he tweeted announcing the shirt, which goes by the name The Forced Quarantee. “100% of profits will be donated to Partners In Health and I will personally match all monies raised. May the Force be with you.”

Jared’s new money-raising initiative follows the release of Pantera’s excellent Vulgar Display Of Power-inspired social distancing shirt, Beartooth’s ‘stay at home’ charity bundles, and Download Festival’s limited-edition T-shirt raising money for the NHS.
Fall Out Boy, meanwhile, donated $100,000 to COVID-19 Response Fund in their hometown of Chicago, and Metallica pledged $350,000 to four different organisations “dedicated to assisting those hit hard by the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic”.
Basically, loads of great bands have been doing loads of great things for charity amid this terrible pandemic. Keep up the amazing work, everyone.
