TUCSON, Ariz. — Yelp and GoFundMe are teaming up to help local businesses as dine-in services are out.

When you open the app, there will be a "donate" option on business's Yelp pages.

Yelp and GoFundMe say they will match up to $1 million dollars in donations. The money will be given in the form of waived advertising fees, free advertising, products and service.

This comes just a few days after Yelp announced $25 million in relief for independent local restaurant and nightlife businesses.
