Let's Do Our Part!

Hi everyone! I know it has been a while since I have written a blog post. I'm going to be honest, it just feels weird to do so with everything going on in the world. My heart hurts for those that have been impacted by COVID-19. I worry for all of the men and women who are on the front lines of this virus and their families. So many people have been impacted by this all over the world. 
My blogger friends and I felt compelled to help in whatever way we could so we have decided to come together to raise money for 3 organizations who are helping fight this virus. We wanted to be able to help a variety of individuals so we will be splitting the donations evenly between the 3 organizations. Keep reading to hear a little more about each organization and we really hope you'll consider donating (the link for our gofundme can be found here).

Direct Relief

Direct Relief is working to provide PPE and essential medical items to those responding to COVID-19. They are delivering masks, gloves, gowns, and other protective gear to healthcare organizations across the country. This is so important as I am sure you have seen there is a shortage everywhere. You can read more about what they are doing in response to COVID-19 here.

The CDC Foundation

The CDC Foundation "helps the CDC do more faster". They partner with the CDC and others in order to fight threats to help and safety.

Feeding America

Feeding America partners with communities and food banks in order to bring food to those in need. Since schools are closed, many children aren't able to access the free or price reduced meals they were once receiving in school. Families are struggling to put food on the table due to loss of income or other life events. Feeding America works to provide emergency grants to food banks and they are partnering with school districts and local government agencies in order to provide food to the children who rely on those school meals. You can read more about what they are doing here

Thank you for taking the time to read this and thank you in advance for any donations you are able to provide. Any amount counts whether its 1$, 5$ or even 50$. We have a goal of 1500$ so we are able to donate 500$ to each organization and I am confident together we will all meet that goal! Feel free to share our link with your friends and family. You have the power to make a difference, you never know who you have helped with your donation.
