A petition calling for an additional $2,000 per month in stimulus checks for households and individuals now boasts more than 2.2 million signatures.

The petition, which was launched on Change.org last year after the pandemic forced businesses nationwide to shutter, is now fewer than 800,000 signatures away from its goal of 3 million.

“Even successful small businesses can’t go months with their doors closed,” Stephanie Bonin, the Denver restaurant owner behind the push, wrote on the petition, Newsweek reported.

Bonin, who believes the $1,200, $600 and even $1,400 one-time payments weren’t enough, added that “supplying Americans with monthly support until they can get back on their feet can save our communities from financial ruin.”
