Bethenny Frankel Real Housewives of New York RHONY

While Bethenny Frankel rose to fame as a Real Housewives of New York cast member. She made a lot of money through the Skinnygirl Margarita and her other business ventures. Nowadays, she’s best known as someone we can count on in a crisis. She’s stepped up to deliver big results in response to natural disasters and the coronavirus pandemic.

Now, her organization Bstrong is raising funds to lend support to black-owned businesses during this difficult time in the country.

At midnight on June 3, Bethenny tweeted, “#Bstrong will donate cash cards to black-owned businesses who have suffered. Our goal is to start w a small number of 100 businesses. My goal was 20k #coronakits & we did $18m, so let’s dream big. #thisisaculturalcrisis #dreambig.” And if anyone can “dream big” and make goals a reality, it’s Bethenny Frankel and her supporters. 

Specifically, the RHONY OG shared, “Bstrong will reach our goal of funds for 100 businesses today. Money is FLYING in! Tomorrow we will raise money to help the second group of 100 businesses of ALL races. #bstrong #thisisaculturalcrisis THANK YOU.”

Bethenny told her followers, “We have reached our goal for mission 1 in ONE DAY because of YOU. Your power is astounding and infinite. Tomorrow we will begin a raise for mission 2 to help 100 small businesses nationwide with #bstrong cash cards. #thisisacrisis.” She followed up with, “We hit the GOAL!”
