Rihanna and Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey continue to do the most amid the coronavirus crisis.

On Thursay, ABC News reported that Dorsey and Rihanna’s Clara Lionel Foundation are each ponying up $2.1 million to the Mayor’s Fund of Los Angeles to help L.A.’s domestic violence victims. Mayor Eric Garcetti says the money will provide housing, food and counseling for “90 domestic violence victims, per week, with an additional 90 victims every week thereafter, for 10 weeks.”

Those figures are based on an estimate from the L.A. Housing Authority that about 90 people a week have been turned away from domestic violence shelters thanks to stay-at-home orders. Garcetti added, “You are truly angels helping this City of Angels.”
