Music super star, Rihanna and the CEO of Twitter, Jack Dorsey are
joining forces to send millions to people in need of safety and protection they
can't get at home during the coronavirus lockdown.
singer's Clara Lionel Foundation and the Twitter CEO announced Thursday
they're sending a $4.2 million grant to the Mayor's Fund for Los Angeles to help
domestic abuse victims in the city.
huge donation comes amid reports that at least 90 people are being turned away
from full domestic violence shelters in L.A. per week, ever since California
declared a safer-at-home order last month. The money will be able to cover
housing, meals and counseling for 90 victims per week for 10 weeks, and an
additional 90 victims per week for 10 weeks after that, according to TMZ.
The donation is just the latest contribution from Dorsey,
who earlier this week unloaded a BILLION dollars, 28 percent of his wealth to
coronavirus relief efforts.
