HOUSTON – Yelp has teamed up with GoFundMe to create a donation button to make it easier for people to support to a local business they love.
Yelp and GoFunMe wanted to make it easier for loyal customers to help relieve small businesses of their financial burdens during the pandemic.
The partnership follows Yelp’s announcement of a $25 million in relief for local businesses, which will primarily focus on supporting independent local restaurant and nightlife businesses, in the form of waived advertising fees, and free advertising, products and services, during the outbreak.
The GoFundMe fundraisers will appear on Yelp pages for restaurants, nightlife, beauty and fitness and active life businesses.
