Vote now: Help us distribute $75,000 for coronavirus relief
We’re facing a global pandemic the likes of which our planet hasn’t seen in generations.
Hundreds of thousands here in our country have tested positive, and sadly, thousands have already died. The coronavirus pandemic has upended our health care system, our economy and our way of life, and so many people are suffering the effects. It truly breaks our hearts.
Here at CREDO, we have a moral obligation to do what we can to help the people who are affected and the organizations working to make a difference.
That’s why we’ve created a “CREDO COVID-19 Response Fund” to give $75,000 to three organizations working on the front lines of the coronavirus crisis, in addition to the donations we make every month. As always, this gift comes at no cost to our members.
We’d like your help to distribute these funds among Mercy Corps, World Central Kitchen and the National Domestic Workers Alliance. Click here to vote for one, two or all three organizations making a difference during this difficult time before voting ends on April 6.
Mercy Corps is a global team of humanitarians, working together on the front lines of today’s biggest crises to create a future of possibility, where everyone can prosper. Its mission is to alleviate suffering, poverty and oppression by helping people build secure, productive and just communities.
This donation will help fund Mercy Corps’ COVID-19 Resilience Fund to help provide emergency supplies, food, clean water and urgently needed support to vulnerable families and communities during this crisis and beyond. Learn more about Mercy Corps here.
National Domestic Workers Alliance
The National Domestic Workers Alliance is one of the nation’s leading voices for dignity and fairness for the millions of domestic workers in the United States. Founded in 2007, NDWA works for respect, recognition, and inclusion in labor protections for domestic workers, the majority of whom are immigrants and women of color.
A donation will help fund NDWA’s “Coronavirus Care Fund” which is working to slow the spread of the virus by providing emergency assistance for domestic workers that enables them to stay home and healthy. Learn more about National Domestic Workers Alliance here.
World Central Kitchen
World Central Kitchen is a not-for-profit non-governmental organization devoted to providing meals in the wake of natural disasters. Founded in 2010 by celebrity chef José Andrés, the organization prepared food in Haiti following its devastating earthquake. Their motto is, “A hot plate of food when it’s needed most.”
Funding will help WCK deliver fresh meals, help get restaurants back to work, feed frontline healthcare workers and map out feeding efforts during this crisis. Learn more about World Central Kitchen here.
Voting ends on Monday, April 6, so please cast your vote today to help fund one, two or all three of these groups doing critical work during the coronavirus pandemic.
