Fall Out Boy Donated $100,000 To The Chicago Community COVID-19 Response Fund
Artists have been stepping up and donating lately, and we love to see it. Fall Out Boy recently announced that they’re donating $100,000 from the Fall Out Boy Fund to the Chicago Community COVID-19 Response Fund. And you know what makes this more unique and heartwarming? Fall Out Boy grew up in Chicago; the city is essential to them, so they’re helping out as much as they can.
The Fall Out Boy Fund started in 2017. It was created as their way to give back to their hometown. They’ve previously donated to multiple schools and foundations, plus on their MANIA tour, they donated to different charities at each stop! Their giving nature is no different when it comes to this pandemic. They’ve stepped up to donate a considerable sum of money, and we love that.
Chicago is the city that we grew up in. It’s important to us that we give back and support the community and local heroes who are on the front lines any way we can. No act of kindness is too small right now. Check-in with the people you love. Support the businesses you love if you can. Stay vigilant and hopeful. Everyone is affected by this, and we win by coming together and thinking of the world as bigger of ourselves.
The money will help out with food for students who usually get their meals through Chicago Public Schools, food banks, and direct monetary support for those who have lost their jobs/income due to COVID-19. It’s an incredible donation, and it’ll help tremendously! It rightfully belongs in a Positivity Place as it feels like a good burst of positivity at this time.

Victoria Beckham Speaks To NHS Staff In A Humbling Video
“The support is amazing,” were the words of one NHS staff member during a FaceTime call with Victoria Beckham. Victoria posted her FaceTime call to Instagram to show how the NHS staff have been doing during this pandemic, and it’s so humbling! Victoria asked them if they felt the support and the clapping they’ve been getting from all over the world, and the staff have been feeling the support and needing it.
It’s very humbling to see what the staff has been doing and how hard this situation is for them, working five long days a week and being far from family. But they do this for us! They do this so the majority of populations can be safe and healthy, they’re so strong and full of positivity. They want us to be healthy and safe, so they work hard. It’s been incredible to see the videos of people clapping for the hospital workers, but seeing how they’ve been doing and working is truly inspiring and humbling.

Yesterday I had the humbling opportunity to speak to an NHS team in Scotland. Please have a look and listen to what they are saying. They are so inspiring and we all need to do our part in staying home and helping these incredible workers and their colleagues on the frontline x VB
Okay, all together now, can we say thank you to the NHS staff? Okay. THANK YOU NHS STAFF FOR ALL YOUR HARD WORK KEEPING US ALL HEALTHY!
