Dolly Parton does an incredible amount of charity work, and her workload is much higher. The country singer spoke about a recent phone conversation she had with one of the richest men in the world: Jeff Bezos. She announced that the American owner of Amazon had gifted her a staggering amount of money to use at her discretion.
Dolly said, “I’m still praying and thinking about where it can all go. I don’t have to spend it all in one place.” [and I] You don’t have to spend it all now.”
However, the 76-year-old stressed that she would do “a lot of good” with the money. She said: “I can guarantee you that I will be able to do a lot of good for a lot of causes in need and a lot of good people in need.”
Dolly also spoke candidly about the legacy she wants to leave behind. She said: “I want to be remembered as a good person. If I can be, I want to be remembered as a generous person, a talented person. I just want to say that I did the best I could with everything I had.” and I tried to do as much good as I could and have as much fun as I could for myself and make other people have fun at my expense. So, I just want to be remembered as a good-hearted person.”
This isn’t the first time Dolly has been involved in doling out a large amount of cash for charity.
The iconic singer runs Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library, a book giveaway program dedicated to “inspiring a love of reading in the hearts of children around the world.”
He also donated a staggering $1 million to Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville, Tennessee in 2020. The donation was to help Moderna’s Covid-19 vaccine.
