Not everyone may like this B but no one can deny she is doing some good!
Bethenny has transformed from a real housewife to a philanthropic powerhouse with her charity ‘B Strong.’ While she has previously helped with natural disasters and domestic abuse, B is now doing her part to help the current Coronavirus pandemic.
Bethenny recently spoke with RADIO.com about donating more masks than she had originally planned, expecting the number to jump to over a million.
“Every time there’s a disaster I really hear from my social media followers. They’re all over the world, and they let me know what’s going on quicker than the news for me sometimes. So a couple of people were talking about the masks.”
Being the super organized, type-A person that she is, B is using a grid system to allocate the masking, adding:
“We decided to take all of the messages into a grid from all of the smaller hospitals from Sarasota to Saratoga to Philadelphia to New Jersey to Staten Island to all over the country and keep them in a grid so that we have masks in major orders of thousands allocated to certain hospitals. We don’t have red tape and we move very quickly.”
Bethenny ensured her own volunteers and workers would be safe, as she ensured everyone that her operation will follow CDC Guidelines:
“My partner is in Florida, quarantining himself except for when they go into our warehouse which will only be about 6 people at a time and they’re 6 feet apart with gloves and masks on, trying to assemble. We’re having a lot of medical masks shipped directly from other countries to the hospitals.”
Bethenny also acknowledged that while this pandemic is terrifying, it has been humbling for everyone as we are all in this fight together:
“I think this is a global reset. It’s terrible and so sad, but everybody that I know feels like there’s a shift, and that they’re experiencing something, and that something is happening personally for them. The most important thing for people to do is to stay calm, cool, and collected and be a person that is good in a crisis.”
I hate when wealthy celebs preach but don’t follow their own advice. Bethenny definitely puts her money where her mouth is, and I respect that. Keep up the good work B!
