Yelp's GoFundMe button lets you help businesses during coronavirus lockdown – CNET

Yelp and GoFundMe are letting you help local businesses get through the coronavirus outbreak.


Yelp

As more cities lock down to curb the spread of the coronavirus, restaurants and other businesses have been forced to close or severely limit their operations. Yelp is trying to help by adding a GoFundMe donation button to its app, so you can support those small businesses.

You can see the donation button on the crowd-sourced review site’s pages for restaurants and “nightlife,” beauty and fitness businesses with fewer than five locations. The rollout started Tuesday and is expected to become available for all eligible businesses over the next two days. GoFundMe, Yelp and Intuit QuickBooks have also committed to collectively donate the first $1.5 million into the Small Business Relief Fund.

Instagram co-founder Mike Krieger kicked off a similar initiative last week. His site SaveOurFaves sells gift certificates for San Francisco Bay Area restaurants and coffee shops.

The new strain of coronavirus, which develops into the illness known as COVID-19, was discovered in Wuhan, China, in late 2019 and has spread worldwide. As of Wednesday morning, it had infected more than 425,000 people and caused over 18,000 deaths globally.
