Immigrant Small Business/Freelancer Relief Fund

Hi everyone. We're a group of freelance creatives and small business owners who are immigrants & minorities in NYC raising money to give temporary financial assistance for other professionals like us who have been affected by the Coronavirus pandemic. 

There is lots of commentary on the presumed impact of Covid-19 on independent professionals and gigsters -- and many of us are already feeling the impact. Whether it's from canceled gigs, lost jobs, illnesses or a lack of business due to coronavirus scares, we want to provide immediate relief to those at financial risk. Most immigrants - including legal ones - have little support from the government when it comes to situations like this, and we want to make sure everyone feels safe and secure during these difficult times.  

If you are a freelancer or small business owner who is seeking financial assistance for the next couple weeks/month, please fill the form on the link below, so we can prioritize those in need and most at-risk. We promise your information will remain confidential: 

The more funding we receive, the more money we can provide to more people in need. Please consider donating any amount or sharing if you are unable to give at this time. Let's spread kindness not fear.  

❤️ We're in this together. 

**For transparency: Funds will go directly to the freelancer/business owner to counter any lost income incurred as a result of canceled jobs, gigs, closures and illnesses due to the Covid-19 pandemic in the city.
