Four sisters from Washington, D.C., opened up the Southwest Soda Pop Shop just two years ago, but once the pandemic hit, their ice cream business took a huge hit. They posted on Twitter asking for help, and the money came rolling in! Nearly $40,000 later, they are able to keep their lights on and continue working thanks to the selfless acts of strangers.
