Australian cricket legend Brett Lee and leading sportsbook Sportsbet have donated 1 Bitcoin each in an effort to provide much-needed aid to India during the ongoing Covid pandemic crisis. The money will be used for general aid and to help to provide India with general medical supplies. Having spent a lot of time in the country over the years, Lee thinks of India as his second home, and when he became aware of the level of which India is suffering due the covid crisis, the ex-Australian cricketer felt compelled to help.
Deeply saddened by the suffering of the Indian People due to the pandemic, Lee has donated an entire Bitcoin to the community-run fund started by Polygon co-founder Sandeep Nailwal, CryptoRelief.in.
Sportsbet.io Continue to Support Global Communities
Following Lee’s example to support the cause, Sportsbet.io has followed suit and donated 1 Bitcoin to help support India. The ex-Ashes player feels privileged and has a responsibility to make a difference to this ongoing global issue.
Taking into consideration the efforts being made and the hardships endured, Lee also gives thanks to “all the frontline workers who have been working round the clock during these tough times.” In a position to help the cause, Lee supports India with his 1BTC donation to help provide the vital medical supplies required including “oxygen supplies for hospitals across India.”
Having witnessed the generous donation by Brett Lee, and the coming together of the wider crypto community for this cause, Director of Sportsbook at Sportsbet.io, Joe McCallum stated that he too needed to step up and join the effort.
