UPDATE: Thanks to our generous donors, we are able to feed THREE large ER/ICU departments! Many thanks to all of you for your contributions and ongoing support!
#GivingTuesdayNow is a global day of giving + unity in response to the unprecedented need caused by COVID-19. At a time when we are all experiencing the pandemic, generosity is what brings people together across the globe. Generosity gives everyone the power to make a positive change in the lives of others.
For our #GivingTuesdayNow campaign we’re fundraising for #IFeedTheFront, an initiative launched by Kevin Bacon’s charity, Sixdegrees.org.
Every dollar of your donation, plus a matching contribution from the Schnick Family Foundation for the first $1,000 raised, will go to support local restaurants to help to keep them operating, put people back to work, and boost the economy. In turn, these restaurants will be providing our frontline workers with meals to keep them nourished and supported as they continue to risk their own safety for ours.
Additionally, starting on #GivingTuesdayNow, the first $50,000 raised will also be matched by Sixdegrees! With these matching gifts you can QUADRUPLE your donation and impact on #GivingTuesdayNow!
The power of your donation:
$10: Feeds 1 frontline worker
$50: Feeds 3-5 frontline workers
$100: Feeds a team of 5-10
$500: Feeds a small ER/ICU department
$1000: Feeds a large ER/ICU department
$5000: Provides a daily meal for ~50 frontline workers for one week
