Earlier this week, Verizon announced Pay It Forward Live, a weekly streaming entertianment series that will raise money to support small businesses affected by COVID-19.
The series will stream live every Tuesday/Thursday at 8 p.m. ET cia Verizon's twitter (@Verizon) and on Yahoo Entertainment. Verizon brought out a heavy hitter for their premiere episode - with Dave Matthews playing a solo set from his living room. Dave was supposed to play for 30 min ... but ended up going for close to an hour. You can check out the set and individual highlights (for the next week) below.
The goal of Pay It Forward Live is to raise money for the Local Initiatives Support Corporation, who in turn will “use the funds to provide grants of up to $10,000 to businesses facing immediate financial pressure because of COVID-19..."
Verizon has pledged a $2.5 million donation and will add another $2.5 million as Pay It Forward viewers call out support for their favorite local businesses as they watch :)
