The COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic has the world navigating unprecedented waters. Millions of people are self-quarantined at home and reading more news than usual, but between the news updates, there are stories sharing small ways that people are showing up for another.

If you’re looking for a way to spread hope, and perhaps ease a heavy heart, there are several ways you can help. There are many organizations directly involved with COVID-19 relief, but emergency response and healthcare organizations aren’t the only nonprofits that need your support. The coronavirus pandemic is causing unusual struggles for everyone and all nonprofit organizations are still working hard to make an impact on their unique missions.

  3. Share a Campaign on Social Media
