A marketplace known for its secondhand items has a unique approach towards the contagious virus. While most of us are at our homes and are self-quarantining, the ones who are suffering from it, should not be neglected. Social distancing has led to a shortage of supplies and meals as well. Hence, StockX, with its #FlexFromHome initiative, donated $20,000 to Feeding America along with meals for people.8. Bulgari View this post on Instagram
