Dolly Parton Marks 75th Birthday With Open Letter Urging Fans To Be Kind
The legendary country singer Dolly Parton has urged her fans to show kindness as she clocks 75. The Grammy award-winning singer recently issued an open letter to her fans posted on her website.
“My wish is that everyone does something a little different today. Let’s call it a call for kindness. If you want to donate to your favourite cause, then donate. You want to give an old friend a call during these lonely times, give them a call. If you can safely volunteer, then raise your hand to do so,” she wrote in part. “The choices are limitless.” The letter read.
Parton also emphasized the importance of commitment in her letter. “I always encourage people to dream big but I also take great care to follow that up with the message to work hard. We can’t just hope for a brighter day, we have to work for a brighter day. Love too often gets buried in a world of hurt and fear. We have to work to dig it out so we can share it with our family, our friends and our neighbours. So today, January 19th, let’s get to unearthing love. Love is more contagious than a virus so let your best self shine in a glorious light and others will be inspired by you.” she wrote

The country queen was born on 19th January 1946, as the fourth child of 12. She was raised in Locust Ridge, Tennesse.
In April, the singer donated $1 million to Nashville’s Vanderbilt University to successfully help develop a Covid-19 vaccine.
“I’m just happy that anything I do can help somebody else, and when I donated the money to the COVID fund, I just wanted it to do good,” she told TODAY last November.
Dolly Parton launched the Imagination Library back in 1995, intending to give children in Tennessee free books each month. Today, Imagination Library is now one of the largest literary programs globally.
They have distributed more than 100 million books to children, a tremendous gift that became the subject of a documentary in 2020 called “The Library that Dolly Built.”
In 2018, the Library of Congress honoured her for the library. “Of all the things I’ve done in my life, this is one of the most precious,” Parton said.
