Fans Are Asked To Help Grant Wishes To People Helping Their Communities
SEATTLE (October 4, 2021) – MOD Super Fast Pizza Holdings, LLC (“MOD Pizza”, “MOD”, the “Company”), the purpose-led, people-first, fast casual pizza brand, today announced it is teaming up with recording artist Chloe Moriondo for MOD’s third Random Acts of MODness campaign. Chloe (known for their major-label debut album Blood Bunny and recent hit “not okay”) and MOD will choose ten individuals to receive $1,000 grants.
Beginning today through Friday, October 8th, Chloe and MOD will take to Twitter to ask fans to nominate people who are doing good things in their community.

“Communities are woven together by people taking care of one another. We’re excited to have Chloe join us to recognize and help support ten inspiring people that are making a difference in big and small ways,” said Ally Svenson, co-founder and chief purpose officer, MOD. “This year, more than ever, we continue to be inspired by the impact a simple kind gesture can have on someone’s life and the ripple effect that this can create.”
Added Chloe, “I love pizza and I’m excited to work with MOD Pizza, some of the best, to help community members who deserve additional support after what the world has been through over the last year and a half.”

Together J.I.D. and MOD gifted a car to a deserving young woman in the Atlanta area.

Chloe Moriondo professes to be an “internet kid,” yet they tackle overwhelming infatuation, listless daydreams, and first love with keen empathy that’s unsearchable online. With their relatable, confessional lyrics and idiosyncratic humor, the singer-songwriter has built a devoted fanbase of millions, sharing their authentic self to create a genuine connection with their listeners. In May, Moriondo shared their critically acclaimed major-label debut album Blood Bunny via Public Consumption Recording Co./Fueled By Ramen. The release was crowned a “Critic’s Pick” by The New York Times, who exclaimed, “On the robust and vividly plain-spoken ‘Blood Bunny,’ Moriondo…is a pop-punk whiz, deftly hopping between musical approaches from spare to lushly produced, and emphasizing intimate, cut-to-the-bone lyrics.” Chloe has also racked up praise from Billboard, Pitchfork, PAPER, UPROXX, Refinery29, them., and more. Following Blood Bunny’s release, Moriondo made their television debut performing “Bodybag” on Jimmy Kimmel LIVE!, and appeared soon after on The Late Late Show With James Corden, where they played a dynamic rendition of “I Want To Be With You.”
