The Breakfast Club radio show’s DJ Envy successfully raised over $106,000 for working DJs impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. The radio host was able to provide 213 DJs with $500 each as the result of an Easter Sunday fundraiser on Instagram Live to support Envy’s “I Love My DJs” GoFundMe campaign.

Over 12 hours, those who tuned in heard sets from DJ Clue, DJ D-Nice, Kid Capri, DJ Will, Tony Neal, DJ Prostyle, DJ Scratch, and Quicksilva. Furthermore, DJ Khaled gave over $45,000 to the GoFundMe saying via Twitter, “Bless up to the DJs! I saw @djenvy’s go fund me post and heard the goal was to raise 50K for the DJs so I put the remaining $45,255 up. We are here to support each other! We are in this together!”

“During this pandemic, you’ve seen DJs step up to the plate and throw virtual parties to keep the spirits up during this quarantine,” Envy told People Magazine. “It’s tough right now for so many DJs to provide for their families with no bars, clubs, lounges, or events to work. Most don’t have healthcare, savings, retirement plans, or have their businesses set up where they can get a stimulus check. So how can they keep food on their table? I knew I had to help.”

Philadelphia’s DJ Ryno Raises $10,000 for Meals for Health Care Workers

Like many DJs in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic, Philadelphia-based DJ Ryan “Ryno” O’Connell has been left with much more free time than usual. However, he’s gone above and beyond hosting live streaming DJ sets to pass the time.

Ryno has raised nearly $10,000 for his “Fuel for the Frontline” crusade, delivering meals from local restaurants to COVID-19 emergency service providers in the Philadelphia and Southern New Jersey areas. Simultaneously wanting to aid both health care workers and small businesses alike, he has created an impressive chain of supply and demand that is bolstering two essential service industries impacted by the virus.

O’Connell told Newsweek that ten days ago he was “sitting [around] with idle time and idle hands,” and had “heard from a few close friends who are nurses about the difficulties of ordering food in between patients.” At first, O’Connell was handling deliveries by himself. Now, the restaurants themselves are delivering or allowing nurses to pick up food on their way to work. This practice limits the number of people touching it, effectively reducing the risk of infection.

O’Connell supplemented his initial donations to GoFundMe by partnering with Vesper Dayclub, a Philadelphia establishment. Last weekend he had a fellow DJ, Nico Oso, live stream a DJ set at the venue while he ran deliveries. For every meal sold during the set, the club would donate two to O’Connell’s campaign. This pledge resulted in an extra $800 of proceeds, totaling 80 meals.

At present, O’Connell’s campaign feeds an average of 20 people per $200 in donations raised. In just one week, the campaign has tallied over 30 deliveries of $200-plus worth of food to nearly 30 different emergency service providers in the Philadelphia and Southern New Jersey areas. O’Connell told Newsweek, “food is going out as fast as we get the money, and the amount of messages I’ve received from the nurses is super heartwarming. I want to keep it going as long as we can.”
