Aaron Rodgers said on the Instagram live stream “The videos everyday are so inspiring so that’s how I want to start. First I’m in and I want to be in the same amount you put in $500,000.”

Dave Portnoy started The Barstool Fund by donating $500,000 of his own money to help small businesses impacted by the Covid-19 Pandemic in December of 2020. The Barstool Fund will help small businesses not just stay afloat for a month or two, but until the Pandemic ends which Portnoy states on his twitter status.
