Having given $5 million to a non-profit, that is distributing $10,000 loans to small businesses. The telecommunications company double-ed down by offering fans free entertainment series and a way to help out.
During the PIFL, fans can go online to find local small businesses to support. You can buy a gift card to use upon reopening, or you can purchase a meal. Additionally, you can use the hashtag #Payitforwardlive, and Verizon will donate $10 up to 2.5 million.
Besides the musical aspect, fans got a chance to watch some of the favorite athletes and entertainers play games and have fun. Saquon Barkley, Faze Clan’s Nate Hill, and Team Penske Racing are just some of the names a part of the series.
