Emilia Clarke might go on a virtual dinner date with you if you contribute to COVID-19 relief efforts.
The actress announced on Instagram that she will be rewarding fans for helping her raise £250,000 (US$309,358) in charity efforts for the Same You organization to help those affected by the coronavirus outbreak.
“How would you feel about having dinner with me virtually?” Clarke asked in a video posted on Instagram. She explained that 12 people will get to join her online to sit down, cook and eat together for a good cause.
The money raised for the fund will head towards “virtual rehab clinic support,” which aims to free up beds in hospitals which are presently limited during the health crisis. The offer is up until 9 April 2020 via the Same You website.

We promised we’d let you know about what we were doing to help - today we are launching our Emergency Response for Brain Injury & Stroke Patients to provide more free beds for hospitals, but also desperately needed support for brain injury and stroke survivors. 100% of your generosity will go to funding virtual rehab clinic support in the coming weeks, to help survivors who have been discharged from hospital early due to the coronavirus emergency. Therapy support about brain injury and stroke is vital for ongoing mental and physical recovery. Our aim is to raise £250,000, and the more we raise, the more we can do to help. As a thank you, Emilia will be inviting 12 people to have a virtual dinner party with her to cook, eat and share stories with her. You'll need to donate within the next ten days (by midnight 9th April 2020), and the date of the virtual dinner party for 12 of you, will be in the next few weeks. You may have also spotted the tee Emilia is wearing is from our shop (link in bio), designed by @gommie_poem and @benchallen. Together, we can make a difference, and help those in need at this time. @spauldingrehab @uclh #togethertogethertogether #sameyoucharity #covid19 #coronavirus #pandemic
