Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet have donated money to the last survivor
of the Titanic disaster.
The Hollywood pair – who starred in the 1997 movie based on the 1912 sinking
of the ill-fated ship – and the film’s director James Cameron contributed
$30,000 to a fund for Millvina Dean, 98, to help her remain in an English
nursing home.
Leonardo and Kate decided to help after seeing an appeal by photographer Don
Mullan in the Irish Independent newspaper.
Don had been trying to sell a special photograph of Millvina’s hands, titled
‘Still Surviving’, to raise money to help her. He then decided to reach out
to those who worked on the film for help.
He said: “An old woman, still trying to survive, this time from drowning
under the weight of meeting her nursing home expenses, simply wasn't right,
especially given the enormous sums of money the story of the Titanic had
generated in the recent past.
“There were people out there who could, and I felt, morally should, help
her. To fail Millvina Dean, the last tangible living link to the Titanic,
would make a mockery of the world's expressed concern for the tragedy.”
Millvina was just nine weeks old when she was taken on board the ship as it
set sail for America from Southampton, England, in 1912.
