The support for COVID-19 relief efforts are still continuing and Rihanna’s Clara Lionel Foundation is stepping up yet again to team up with other notable organizations. This time she is joining forces again with Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey and his #StartSmall initiative and also Big Sean and his Sean Anderson Organization.
Each organization along with Lyft, the David Rockefeller Fund, and the Stadler Family Foundation will donate a combined amount of $3.2 million to relief efforts in Detroit and Flint, Michigan. The money will help with necessities such as food and water access, rental assistance, bail relief, domestic violence survivors, homeless people, foster children, refugees, and immigrants.
According to Revolt, Michigan Governor, Gretchen Whitmer said, “I personally want to thank Rihanna and her Clara Lionel Foundation and Jack Dorsey’s Start Small Fund for stepping up to help groups in Detroit and Flint on the frontlines of the COVID-19 pandemic. This generous gift will give these essential nonprofits much-needed resources to help address the needs of those impacted most by COVID-19.”
