Facebook gives $100 mn in grants

As the coronavirus pandemic continues to impact communities around the world, on Tuesday morning Facebook announced that it will be offering $100 million in cash grants and ad credits for “up to 30,000 eligible small businesses in over 30 countries where we operate.”

“People across the globe are stepping up, rising to the enormous challenge in front of us,” COO Sheryl Sandberg wrote in a post, below, announcing the news. “We want to do our part too.” “The longer the crisis goes on, the greater the risk to small businesses and to the livelihoods of their owners and employees.”“Small businesses are the heartbeat of our communities, and many of the people who run these businesses are heavily affected by the crisis -- especially as more and more people sensibly stay home,” Sandberg wrote.
