For the past couple of months we have been raising funds through the
TVR Creative Fund to help DMV (Washington DC, Maryland, and Virginia) artists and entrepreneurs, who were affected financially by the COVID-19 pandemic.
The artist and entrepreneur community is a vulnerable one to start, and the pandemic highlighted these vulnerabilities, leaving a lot of people in these communities struggling financially. We decided to step up and help out by giving away a portion of proceeds from our issue 6 magazine and tote bags sales, and Mighty Cause donations, to DMV creatives in need.
With the help of The Vibe Room supporters we were able to raise enough funds to provide support for two creatives Torera CEO of DMV based publication, xBlaze Magazine and Kiarra Patterson a DMV based artist.
