HELP THE GIG ECONOMY - CORONAVIRUS INCOME RELIEF

A lot of independent contractors fear they won't be able to provide for their family and take care of themselves because of this temporary quarantine. If you have the means to help, please donate. In this time of isolation, it's important we show up for one another any way we can. If you can't donate, please share it!

The Gig Economy represents approximately 30% of our national workforce. Because they are independent and live gig to gig the majority do not receive W-2’s and with the mandate of no events over 10 people, no domestic or international travel, and the closing of critical venues they will have almost no income or relief. All monies raised here will go directly to these incredible people, for rent, food, power bills, etc. If we can help 100 people at average $500 each would make all the difference and help aid in their relief. Help if you can, because unfortunately the system as it is can’t.
