Sharing a video on Instagram, Priyanka and Nick expressed gratitude and thanked their fans for the donation. 

In the video, Priyanka can be heard saying, “When India needed you, you came through. Over 15,000 of you, across the world, came together to help India through one of its biggest humanitarian crisis and fight the second deadly wave of the Covid-19 virus.”

Nick further said that the donor’s love and support transcended boundaries and helped strangers they have never met. The couple then thanked people who came together and exceeded their expectations of raising USD 1 million by donating over USD 3 million.

Priyanka captioned the video, “We did it together… for India. Thank you.”
