Jeffree Star is sending thousands of dollars to people affected by coronavirus by getting them to tweet him their Cash Apps.

Ever since coronavirus became a global health crisis this year, it's negatively affected millions of people. Some are struggling to cope with the costs of suffering from the illness. Others have lost jobs and income because their workplaces have all shut until further notice. There are many people who now can't afford to pay for necessities like food and rent.

Taking to Twitter on Saturday (Mar 21), Jeffree tweeted: "I really want to help more people in need today! Drop your cash app below w hashtag #JeffreeStarApproved, I'm going to help as many people as I can until I hit the limit". Jeffree then began to send money to fans who used the hashtag. He also responded to some of them on Twitter, offering words of support.

After reaching the Cash App sending limit, Jeffree later tweeted: "Hi @CashApp, I'd love it if you could verify my account so I can raise the daily limit of $ I can SEND. Just hit the limit after sending to 20 + people! Thank you so much!" It's unclear how much he sent but, given that Jeffree was sending $250 to some people, he likely gave out over $5000 to fans.

After hitting his Cash App limit, Jeffree tweeted: "Love you guys so much! I've reached my daily limit of $ I can send but I will be doing this a lot during these dark and crazy times. Tomorrow I will be doing something even bigger!"

Yesterday (Mar 22), Jeffree explained what the "even bigger" thing is: "I’m going to give away $30,000 to 1 random person who retweets this tweet AND follows Twitter Philanthropist @Pulte and Me!! (If you don’t follow us, we can’t DM you the money) Will show proof! Much love".
