Since the inception of  iWillOpen.comRebel News supporters have been asking what more they can do to help struggling small businesses.

While  Rebel News tackles COVID fines across the world through our civil rights campaign, other entrepreneurs have taken it upon themselves to help small businesses in their own way.

Inspired by Barstool Sports CEO Dave Portnoy's Barstool Fund, which has raised tens of millions for business owners in the United States, entrepreneur Travis Kanellos and his business partner, professional lacrosse player Dan Lomas, have started Fund the Grind, aimed at supporting establishments in a similar way.

The fund has enjoyed a few celebrity endorsements despite being in its early stages, including from long-time Toronto Raptors commentator Jack Armstrong
