May 5: #GivingTuesdayNow “Day of Global Action for Giving and Unity in Response to COVID-19”

We hope this brief note finds you safe and healthy.

Every year, millions of our fellow hardworking, compassionate and generous Americans lead the world in donating their time, talents, and treasures during #GivingTuesday.

Today, Marile and I write to you — humbly — to ask for your help, once again!
#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-19.
We join many who believe that generosity has the power to unite and heal communities in good times and bad.
A global threat like COVID-19 touches every person on the planet, and it presents an opportunity to come together as a global community.
We can still show social connection and come together on behalf of our communities even while practicing physical distancing.

How are you giving back?

Here are some ideas for how to participate: 

  • Support healthcare workers by donating supplies.
  • Give to the charity that you love most – no amount is too little and nonprofits need our support.
  • Help out local small businesses and ordering takeout from restaurants.
  • Combat loneliness by reaching out to a neighbor, relative, seniors or veterans.

Share on social media with hashtag #GivingTuesdayNow and inspire others to “give together even when we’re apart”.

New technologies are powering online giving — making “giving back” as easy as clicking on your charity’s website.

Mobilizing the World Through Giving

This #GivingTuesdayNow, let’s come together to create a wave of generosity, citizen engagement, action from business and philanthropy, and support for communities and nonprofits around the world.

Thank you in advance for your consideration, generosity and friendship.

Stay safe … Warmest personal regards,

 

Marile & Jorge Luis Lopez, Esq.
