Poshmark started taking applications from eligible sellers on Thursday for the company’s second round of its Heart and Hustle Fund, a $500,000 pot of money that the platform plans to mete out this year. Every three months, the company will give $5,000 each to 12 sellers, and $500 grants to 130 sellers. On top of funding, winners also get to join a private Discord group with other grant recipients, as well as invitations to presentations and working sessions with the Poshmark team driven by the cohort’s interests.
Viral sensation, gay icon and fashion trendsetter, Tika the Iggy, has launched her very own closet on Poshmark, selling her previously loved items, including leashes, onesies and sweaters, nationwide for dog owners to snatch up for their own fur babies. All proceeds of the sale will go to Rainbow Railroad, a Canadian not-for-profit organization that helps LGTBQI+ people facing persecution based on their sexual orientation, gender identity and sex characteristics.
