We hope you and your family are taking care of yourselves during this challenging time. We know it will take many hands to lift our community up. But we also know Calgarians are resourceful and resilient, and in the face of challenging times, we are still finding ways to support each other and our communities. That's why United Way is launching #UnitedApart, a rallying cry for Calgarians to continue to come together in this unprecedented time.
#UnitedApart shines a light on moments of connection, compassion, and kindness and there's no better time to launch than on Giving Tuesday.
Today, thanks to a passionate group of local donors, for every share of the #UnitedApart video on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, or Instagram, $10 will be donated for COVID relief, up to $50,000. The more shares, the more money we can raise to connect vulnerable Calgarians with the supports they need right now.
We are also happy to share that in addition, this group of donors will match donations made directly to the COVID-19 Community Response Fund, up to $500,000 through May 31. This means you can double your impact in supporting emergency COVID-19 needs. If you have already given to support this fund, thank you so much. If you haven''t had a chance and are able, please give today.
Every day, Calgarians are showing that in times of crisis, we come together to take care of the most vulnerable and to ensure no one is left behind. Included below are resources that may be helpful. We encourage you share this information with anyone you know who is looking for additional tools to navigate this especially difficult time.
Thank you for the kindness and generosity being shown across our community. Please take care of yourself. And thank you for taking care of one another!
