Leading up to the highly anticipated Fight for the Fallen event on July 15th, AEW (All Elite Wrestling) has announced two charity-driven initiatives to help support northeast Florida’s response to Covid-19. Funds from both AEW programmes will be distributed to Florida’s First Coast Relief Fund and Feeding Northeast Florida, both of which will provide a range of health and well-being services for those struggling during this time.
The two organisations are 501(c)(3) not for profits. In the spirit of Fight for the Fallen, which raised money for the Jacksonville-based Victims Assistance Advisory Council last year, AEW is appealing to fans to donate what they can to Florida’s First Coast Relief Fund and Feeding Northeast Florida at www.AEWFightfortheFallen.com.
As part of the overall effort, AEW has designed a limited-edition shirt depicting powerful Fight for the Fallen imagery with a Covid-19 protective face mask at the centere of the artwork. One hundred per cent of the proceeds from sales of the shirt, which is available at www.ShopAEW.com, will also go to Florida’s First Coast Relief Fund and Feeding Northeast Florida.
In March, the Khan family donated $1 million to various organizations to support northeast Florida’s response to Covid-19.
“The efforts of the First Coast Relief Fund and Feeding Northeast Florida over the past four months have been truly amazing, but unfortunately the battle against this pandemic continues and that means their work is far from over,” said Tony Khan, President and CEO of AEW. “On behalf of everyone at AEW, and our fans, I thank both groups for their commitment to our home community of Jacksonville and North Florida and hope we can all come together to do what we can to support their mission.”
