Relief With Love is a women-founded and led 501(c)(3) non-profit based in NYC with a mission to spread love. We saw the devastating impact of COVID-19, especially where we live in NYC and wanted to give back to our restaurant community and frontline workers at the hospitals aiding those affected. This led us to the idea of making someone in your life feel loved by curating a customized beaded bracelet  along with a personalized message for donors to send to friends or essential workers. Each bracelet provides one meal that not only helps keep restaurants’ lights on, but also feeds those on the frontline.

Relief With Love is committed to evolving and adapting in SPREADING LOVE to those in need beyond COVID-19. Since our launch on April 12th, we’ve partnered with over 10 restaurants to serve health care workers at more than 15 hospitals, provide meals to the FDNY and EMS, food banks and homeless shelters such as, The Bowery Mission and now protestors in NYC on the frontlines battling injustice.

If you are feeling inspired, feel free to reach out to us. To help support our mission, visit us at instagram: @reliefwithlove.
