. . .Verizon has found a way to marry digital entertainment and philanthropy while honoring social distancing guidelines via Pay if Forward Live, a new weekly streaming series that will include music, gaming, comedy and other categories all to support small businesses that have been affected during the coronavirus pandemic. The series launches Thursday at 8 p.m. EST with an exclusive performance from veteran rocker Dave Matthews. 

He'll do a 30-minute set from home that will be streamed on Twitter @verizon and on Yahoo Entertainment. Additional partners and artists, who will follow his lead with intimate home-based performances, will be announced at a later date. As part of Pay it Forward Live, Verizon will donate $2.5 million to Local Initiatives Support Corporation (LISC), a national nonprofit that has invested $20 billion since 1979 to boost economic opportunity for people and communities across the U.S. During the series run, viewers will be encouraged to tag local businesses and make a purchase in advance for when the crisis is over and the businesses reopen. Following engagement, Verizon will commit $2.5 million more, for a potential donation of $5 million.

He'll do a 30-minute set from home that will be streamed on Twitter @verizon and on Yahoo Entertainment. . .

    Yeah I don't know if it is going to be really 30 minutes.  They advertised Garth Brooks as 30 minutes on Monday and they went over an hour I think.  Not sure but I'm guessing longer than 30 minutes.

    I forget the name of the charity Dave played for, but it seemed cool that the company gets food to those in need STAT during emergencies.

    That would be awesome. Dave solo in his living room stoned to the gills. Just jamming for 30 mins. I’ll watch that. 
    Peace,Love and Pearl Jam.

    He was a great choice for this. Delightfully weird and well-suited to be alone in a room talking to a webcam with no one responding.

    I thought he was hysterical.  Only knew 1 song but i very much enjoyed watching his fingers work the frets up close like that.
