Not only was the experience a fun and celebrity-laden–albeit notably twerk-free–environment, but it also served a dual purpose in helping contribute to the fight against coronavirus. As the dance party raged on, Diddy’s Team Love x Direct Relief initiative was accepting donations in the name of all the health care workers putting their lives on the line. Following the Dance-A-Thon, Diddy’s charity raked in a staggering sum of $3,731,260, which should go a long way in assisting those in need.
As explained on TeamLove.com, Diddy’s “Direct Relief supports healthcare organizations and professionals who care for medically underserved communities. Team Love also cares for these communities, which are often Black & Brown and disproportionately affected by emergencies like this pandemic.”
Much respect to Diddy for holding down in this time of crisis, and to anybody who took the time to donate. Did you tune into Diddy’s Dance-A-Thon?
