Ex-Australian Cricketer Brett Lee Donates 1 Bitcoin to Help India Fight COVID-19

Appreciating the initiative taken by his fellow Australian Pat Cummins, Brett Lee has just announced to donate 1 Bitcoin (worth around $54,000) to India’s Crypto Relief Fund. This donation is aimed at supporting India in its fight against the worsening COVID situation, where oxygen shortage is causing deaths to infected people.

Brett Lee Donates 1 Bitcoin to India

From the inspiration drawn from Pat Cummins, the former Australian paceman Brett Lee has just announced to donate 1 Bitcoin to India’s Crypto Relief Fund. In a note posted on Twitter, he appreciated Pat Cummins for starting this initiative and said, “It saddens me deeply to see people suffering due to the ongoing pandemic.”

Thus, “I feel privileged to be in a position of making a difference and with that in mind, I’d like to donate 1 BTC (Bitcoin) to Crypto Relief to help with the purchase of oxygen supplies for the hospitals across India.” He also said that India is like a second home for him, and received love and affection during his professional career and even after retirement.

He also suggests others make a donation of whatever they can and thanked all the “frontline workers who have been working round the clock during these tough times.” He’s currently working as a commentator and an analyst in the ongoing IPL 2021, whereas Pat Cummins, who yesterday donated $50,000 to the same cause is playing for KKR in the tournament.
