Diddy’s recent Instagram Live “Dance-A-Thon” wasn’t just for fun; it was also a fundraiser for COVID-19 relief efforts, and the hip-hop mogul raised over $3.7 million.

Diddy partnered with Team Love for the all day and night “Dance-A-Thon” which raised $3,730, 765.00, according to the Direct Relief website, as The Shade Room reports.

“Thank you for working together to help those in need and for spreading LOVE through your generous donation! Total amount raised by Team Love: $3,730,765.00,” the site read.

The funds raised will assist health care workers in underserved communities who are currently fighting the coronavirus pandemic, according to the site.

”Team Love has partnered with Direct Relief, a nonprofit humanitarian aid organization that rushes critical medicines and requested supplies to communities affected by poverty or emergencies throughout the world. All donations will support Direct Relief’s emergency response to COVID-19. Direct Relief supports healthcare organizations and professionals who care for medically underserved communities. Team Love also cares for these communities, which are often Black & Brown and disproportionately affected by emergencies like this pandemic,” the site also reads.
