#GivingTuesdayNow is a new global day of giving and unity that will take place on May 5, 2020 – in addition to the regularly scheduled Dec 1, 2020 #GivingTuesday – as an emergency response to the unprecedented need caused by COVID.
We can still show social connection and come together on behalf of our communities even while practicing physical distancing.
- Support healthcare workers by donating supplies, advocating for them, and staying home.
- Give to not for profit organizations – no amount is too little and nonprofits need our support.
For instance, Youth First is responding to the question NOW by continuing to care for kids and strengthening their resilience. This organization is uniquely positioned to provide remote support and virtual resources for thousands of students, parents, and educators in 81 school communities across 10 Indiana counties.
In the wake of the COVID-19 crisis, Youth First remains vitally connected to vulnerable students and families, helping them develop the coping skills necessary to get through these stressful times and bounce back in a healthier state of mind. To help this organization directly go to Youth First, Inc.’s #GivingTuesdayNow COVID-19 Relief Fundraiser
