After already announcing a $1 Million Relief Fund benefitting small businesses and women of color entrepreneurs who have been affected by the pandemic, a personal care company is hosting its first-ever Virtual Pop-Up for your quarantined at-home viewing pleasure.
This Saturday, May 9, SheaMoisture’s offering you a day-long program of online events including panel discussions with prominent cultural leaders, networking sessions, live hairstyling demos, music, and more. Confirmed celeb participants include Taraji P. Henson, Charlamagne Tha God, and chef Mali Hunter.
During the virtual pop-up, SheaMoisture will announce additional donations to local organizations who are providing resources and services for their communities and frontline workers, as well as two new grants under the Fund for small, minority businesses. This pop-up will also serve to ‘Continue the Stories of the Unsung,’ and help bring awareness and visibility of the businesses and people often overlooked as heroes in black and brown communities.
