Fans of vegan singer Billie Eilish and her brother FINNEAS can watch the sibling duo perform live today at 5pm PST as part of the “Pay It Forward Live” streaming series, a program launched by Verizon to support small business during the COVID-19 pandemic. Eilish and FINNEAS will highlight small businesses during the intimate show—which viewers are encouraged to support through efforts such as online orders and the purchase of gift cards—including vegan restaurants that are participating in the Support + Feed initiative launched by their mother Maggie Baird. The initiative encourages customers to purchase gift orders from participating vegan restaurants in Los Angeles and New York City, which will in turn be donated to frontline workers and vulnerable populations in those cities.
“Small businesses are a crucial part of our community, and it is so important that we support them during this crisis,” Eilish said. “I am honored to be able to call attention to these local businesses, who have made an impact on my life, and are trying to make the world a better place.”
Verizon will donate $10—with a maximum of $2.5 million—for each use of #PayItForwardLIVE during the event to support small businesses. The livestream will be available on Twitter at Verizon and Yahoo, as well as Verizon’s Facebook and YouTube pages, Fios Channel 501 and 604, AXS TV, FOX NOW, or for listening on iHeart and SiriusXM and will be archived for one week.
