Announced this morning in a Brady Bunch adjacent Instagram video, the live-streamed fundraiser event will begin at 3pm EST via Instagram, aspiring to be “the biggest dance-a-thon in the world.” The benefit is in partnership with Direct Relief, a non-profit coordinating the distribution of protective equipment (masks, gloves, and gowns,) to healthcare personnel across the country. The Bad Boy Records founder’s effort mirrors recent at-home charity initiatives from Questlove, Def Comedy Jam, and BET, all joining forces with organizations leading the relief effort in communities hit hardest by the virus.
