5 Ways To GIVE During COVID-19!

5 Ways To GIVE During COVID-19!
COVID-19 has impacted our daily life and economy quickly and mercilessly. Low income communities have been disproportionately affected by COVID-19. Leaving vulnerable communities with no income, food, or protective gear.  Rizos Curls, a Los Angeles-based curly hair care brand rooted in Curls, Community and Culture, has partnered with Lets.Give to create the #RizosCurlsGive Initiative, a multi-faceted initiative for COVID-19 relief to help at risk families. The #RizosCurlsGive Initiative kicks off with a personal donation of $5,000 from Julissa Prado, founder of Rizos Curls, and we are asking our community to join the initiative to help GIVE!

The 5 ways to GIVE:

1. Give Money

Donate to the #RizosCurlsFund where 100% of the money will go directly to: 

  • Low income families in Los Angeles, funds distributed by Lets.Give. 


  • Farm workers (from the Delano + Bakersfield communities ) will receive funds distributed by Lets.Give. 

*If you want to donate to the farm workers fund please specify “Farm Workers” in donation notes of your donation*


Where to donate:

Venmo: lets-dot-give

CashApp: $letsdotgive


2. Give Service

You can give your time and provide a service to those in need! If you are bilingual you can volunteer to translate any questions and answers for low income families about COVID-19 grants, funds and help them apply. This service can be done virtually via telephone!

If you'd like to volunteer please fill out this form!

If you know a low income family that needs help signing up for COVID-19 grants & funds please contact Lets.Give:  310.713.7582
