“Covid-19 Single Mom Stimulus From the Fellas, was something started from a need. Dr. AG Gaston stated, “find a need and fill it.” So, we hope to fill that need. I’ve watched so many single moms struggle whole times were well, I knew these times would bring more strife. I wanted to figure out how we can minimize those burdens. I have friends that are single moms and I hear what they are facing. I have friends and their moms were single parents, I hear their stories,” Omar told LookWeAreIncluded.com.

On Tuesday April 7, around 11: 23 a.m. Young posted his idea on Facebook letting his followers know that some children in the area were going hungry, due to job cuts from the national crisis. “It’s some single moms out here struggling right now and don’t know which way to turn,” Omar wrote on Facebook so he asked how many people would be willing to help turn this situation around.

He proposed his Facebook friends to give a maximum of $5 a month to the $inglemomcovid19 (Cash App) account and single mothers would be chosen by a raffle  give-a-way on Facebook live.

“Ultimately, the kid is the one who really suffer. I saw the food banks and everything, but I wanted them to have money in hand to choose to their liking. And Covid 19 Single Mom Stimulus was birthed,” Omar Young told LookWeAreIncluded.com
