World Red Eye, a Miami-based multi-media digital agency founded by Seth Browarnik–or rather, “the celebrity lensman of South Beach”–is fighting COVID-19. Its website has now become an information center for the city’s community to receive news and updates about the virus, and access to its fundraising campaign, #WRECares in partnership with the Little Lighthouse Foundation. The fundraiser has already raised over $35,000 to assist healthcare workers in South Florida and is nearing its goal of $50,000. In addition, for every $3 contributed, a face mask will be donated to essential healthcare workers, with a goal to donate 100,000 masks.
The Miami Marlins have also partnered with #WRECares. To help supply World Red Eye’s mask-maskers with materials, the baseball team has donated 1,000 articles of clothing, including authentic home and road jerseys, uniform pants and 100% cotton t-shirts, which will create an estimated 7,500 masks.
