Barstool's Dave Portnoy Raises $10M for Small Business Owners.
Love him or hate him, this guy knows how to get attention. Dave Portnoy went on a mission this past week. Given the government has failed us over and over again, he went on Twitter and Instagram to urge people to donate to the Barstool Fund. The fund provides businesses with cash to help them with their current economic situation. Many of them are restaurants and venues -those who've suffered most.
Dave has raised over $10M as of this morning...in ONE WEEK! From celebrities to athletes to the Bitcoin community, he's had the support of over 85,000 people. This is truly incredible and we should all take note. Look how fast we can get money in the hands that need it most when no one else will. The bar is really low for the government.
I donated. I hope you will consider it if you can.
Happy New Year! Be safe!
That's all for this week!
