Launched in the Spring of 2020, the Radical Relief Fund secured and donated funds to hundreds of people across the United States facing financial uncertainty in the wake of COVID-19, economic recession, and social unrest.
A Bit of Background
While our work profoundly affected those we encountered, we realize that this effort touches only a fraction of those in need of support. Countless others deserve the resources we as a collective society have to share, from the ever increasing food-insecure populations of our country, to the single parent balancing multiple jobs, the artist nourishing our souls, and the farmer nourishing our bodies. We are committed to creating a long-lasting platform that lifts everyone up and propels us all forward. Is that so radical to wish?
2020 Fund Recipients
Lauren teaches yoga in Long Island, and just opened up her studio at the beginning of the year. She will now be able to continue creating online videos for the yoga community to provide support to others while on lockdown.
Lisa is an artist in Colorado that recently found her own place and began supporting herself. Due to the crisis, Lisa is unable to sell her artwork at local shops and restaurants. Now, she will be able to focus on finding a new place to live and creating artwork to continue to expose people to beauty.
"I want to create is a stronger bond in the food community, by taking unemployed chefs to volunteer for understaffed farmers. Mainly in the oyster and urban garden community, promoting a new sustainable protein and making New York City more sustainable and self reliant."
"Helping others should be done as much as possible. Looking for ways to help others doesn’t just have a positive impact on the people you’re helping, it’s good for everyone."
