Help: Small Business Relief Fund For GFM Hero

First thank you for taking the time to view my story. My name is Lance Cooper (business owner, activist, new dad) located in Richmond, Virginia. I've created various media/community improvement projects all over the United States with features in Forbes , People , and on GoFundMe. My small business 804 Street Media lost dozens of clients during the pandemic and years later I’m still trying to recover.

As my business continues to take hits I regret nothing, and plan to keep fighting for justice until change comes.

I'm asking for contributions to help me save everything I've worked hard to build.

How the funds will be spent

The funds will be spent on rebuilding our media network, launching new relief programs around the world, acquiring new building space, and keeping the lights on until things are back to normal. All donations will help 804 Street Media continue to fund & provide the following community + tech projects in Richmond, Virginia and other cities:

RVA Community Closet: A network of support and hope, dedicated to assisting, connecting & empowering the world.

RVACC Youth Empowerment: We provide learning programs to improve youth development – including understanding self and personal values, life skills, dealing with racism, family stress, human growth and development, and issues related to social and emotional transitions from adolescence to adulthood.

RVA Everybody Eats: This community improvement project is actively involved with feeding the homeless and less fortunate. We can, and should, end hunger in America.

Surviving America's Police: We advocate for police reform & against police violence. This program also assists citizens with legal representation.

Save Flint Challenge: This community improvement project is centered around water relief for Flint, and highlighting America's water crisis.
VoLinxx: Digital Volunteer Service. We link donors with people and organizations in need, and promote paying it forward.


With everything going on in my country right now nothing feels secure or safe. Each day for me is a personal fight to keep going. I've never been a quitter, and I hope that people have witnessed enough good in me to help if I ever needed a hand. Upon reaching my goal, any funds received over and above the solicited purposes will be donated to help other new parents and struggling small business owners.

This campaign is me reaching back hoping someone values my work and dedication to helping others. Again, thank you for your time, and if you select not to donate, please consider helping another foster parent or small business in your area. I will always use my platform for what's right and good.

If there is one thing these past few years have taught us, it's that we must come together, step up, and lead with kindness. Any donation, no matter how big or small, will have a huge impact.

When people come together, incredible things can happen.
