The social app Bumble has released a new initiative to support LGBTQ+ organisations during Pride month in June.
The Black Lives Matter protests have led to a global movement of raising awareness about social injustice and police brutality.
A large number of companies and celebrities have taken to social media, standing in solidarity with black communities.
Thanks to people voicing their opinions, many companies have taken action to tackle racism and have open conversations about racial equality.
One of the latest apps to take action in this matter is the networking app Bumble which has introduced a new way to donate to the Black Lives Matter movement.
The app has launched a new initiative to raise money for Black Lives Matter and groups associated with it during Pride month.
Bumble has asked social media users to refer LGBTQ+ organisations which give back to BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Color).
The networking app will donate $5,000 to each group to support those who need bail and mutual aid funds.
How can you support Bumble’s campaign?
Social media users can nominate LGBTQ+ groups that support BIPOC by June 30th.
The initiative is available on Bumble Date, Bumble BFF and Bumble Buzz.
Once users have shared their choices, the app will then review all nominations and donate to selected organisations.
Bumble wrote in a statement: “We want to hear about bail funds for Trans BIPOC, mutual aid funds, and any other organized effort that take an intersectional approach in supporting the LGBTQ+ community.”
Bumble: Other campaigns on social media
The female-orientated networking app has taken a lot of action to tackle racism and support Black Lives Matter groups.
Bumble will donate $1 million across five different organisations, including Black Women’s Health Imperative which supports the health and reproductive rights of African American women.
In addition, Bumble has provided links on social media to online resources about the global movement.
