@chefjoseandres and Claire Babineaux-Fontenot have teamed up with @leonardodicaprio, Laurene Powell Jobs and @Apple to launch America’s Food Fund to help feed local communities. I was struck by the work these organizations are doing and while everyone’s priority right now is to stay safer at home, I know there are many of us looking for ways to help. I believe that America’s Food Fund will be a powerful way to make a difference for our neighbors in need and am committing $1 million to this fund to support those facing food insecurity. I am donating $10 million overall to help Americans during this pandemic in cities across the country and in areas where I grew up. For more on this Fund and how everyone can be of service, tap the link in my bio to watch this free AppleTV+ conversation.

Good for her. She might as well spend it on those in need now instead of leaving it all behind for her dogs and Gayle's wig collection. Now I just need the rest of these 1% celebs who the common people made rich and famous to follow suit.

They say some people are committing suicide over these job losses and inability to pay their bills and buy food. I pray for all those who are emotionally, physically and spiritually weak right now.
People who have struggled in life know how to weather life's storms. Some people who aren't use to that struggle just give up so quickly.

WTF Is 80% Of Americans Live Paycheck To Paycheck- That Itself Is A Sin & A Crying Shame :(

The Majority Is 15 Days Away From Homelessness ...

The Bigger Problems Are Yet To Come-

Desperate People ? Do Desperate Things !

Thank YOU TMH GOD FOR Placing Me In His Sacred Tent In The Days Of Troubles .

Here's what I don't like about charities, 75% of that 10 million will go to administrative cost and what's left over get used for the right reasons. Maybe 2 million of that will be used. She could have given several restaurants some money to keep their doors open to cook meals for those in need and then employed drivers or uber to make "no-contact" deliveries. There's a better way then using some bullshit fund. Then take another million to pass out chromebooks to students who can't afford them, attached with internet hot spot devices. There's a better and more effective way than throwing money at a charity.

Fuck celebrities.

I really don't give a fuck about any of them during this pandemic. They can all go fuck their narcissitic selves.

We need to care about the doctors, frontline workers, and families.

I'm happy for Oprah and her good deed but it's time for all these celebtards to black out of social media and give the world a break with their need for attention. I'm not a Beyonce fan by no means and most of her music is hot garbage. But I'll give her credit: we ain't seen her thick neck ass in weeks since this pandemic. The other celebrities need to follow suit, especially them overexposed talentless hoes Cardi B and J.Lo.

BeyondBoring staying low key cause her cheap ass don't want nobody hittin her up for money. Her and that camel of hers already pretend rich and can't afford to lose any more of those alleged billions. But I agree, expect for Jose Andres because he was out there on the front lines weeks ago handing out food from his DC restaurant. Fuck all the rest of them celebs with their fake ass self serving charities.

These so called fake ass celebrity "charities" are a sham, most of the money go right back to them and their cronies, this is simply tax write off's and rarely, do the money get used for the so called intended purposes, with all the fucking billionaires in this country, hunger and homelessness could have been solved in our lifetime. And Okra with her fake ass tears can go the fuck on somewhere, her ass been exposed.

Thank you If drunk ass bi polar Mariah Carey who don't even have 6 mil in the bank donated 9 mil how in the fuck yo bitch ass know. Ain't no public record. It's publicity record and Mariah ain't balling like that wtf you smoking bitch? @10;41? And fuck Oprah. I agree with who ever said she ain't gone do nothing but leave it to her damn dog but if you all bored and do research you would know Oprah and Janet Jackson got a hidden baby that's already their heirs! Oprah got raped and kept the girl. Janet has a girl by chico or nino debarg. Rebe raised her.

11:44. Yes there are a lot of non black people committing suicide and blacks getting turned down from the hospital and end up dying. Very sad time we live in. We on lock down until April 30. In one state if you look it up on line they have declared marshal law.
