Fashion Nova and Cardi B are donating $1,000 every hour for the next 42 days to those affected by the coronavirus pandemic.
“Many of you are struggling to pay bills, feed your families, and take care of your overall essential needs,” the “Be Careful” singer captioned an Instagram post Wednesday.
“#FashionNovaCARES & I are giving away $1,000 EVERY HOUR until we’ve given away $1 MILLION DOLLARS to those directly affected by this crisis.”
In the accompanying video, Cardi, 27, explained that she and the Fashion Nova team want to make sure that the money goes right into the hands of those in need.
“You know sometimes you give to charity and you wonder, ‘Is it really going to the people?’ Well we’re gonna make sure it goes to the people,” she said.
The Grammy winner will be personally vetting those who apply online on Fashion Nova’s website.
“Make sure your Instagram is open because I’m going to make sure that you really do need it,” she said, joking, “Don’t be lying so you can lend your boyfriend some f—king money. No, you don’t gotta show us your p—y, but if you wanna DM it to me I don’t motherf—king mind.”
