Announcing via his Facebook page, Mark said, “The coronavirus outbreak isn’t just a major health crisis — it’s also a large economic disruption leading to people losing their jobs and making it harder to take care of their families. We’ve heard that a little financial support can go a long way, so today Facebook is launching a program to help communities and small businesses recover from this situation.”
