COVID-19 donations via talent showcase :)

Want to join me in making a difference? I'm raising money to benefit Direct Relief, and any donation will help make a huge difference. My goal is for this talent show to unite our greater community in support of this effort. I hope that the talent show is as fun for its participants as it is for its audience. Please greatly consider making a donation on this page to support Direct Relief, a charity organization described below. (This fund page is directly connected to Direct Relief, so that is exactly where 100% of these funds will go! I created it separately because I am interested in measuring how much our community can do to support progress toward ending this pandemic.)

More information about Direct Relief: Direct Relief improves the health and lives of people affected by poverty and emergency situations by equipping healthcare facilities in resource-poor areas with medicines and supplies. Direct Relief delivers medical resources to people affected by disasters and provides ongoing support in more than 90 countries and all 50 U.S. states. Currently, Direct Relief is responding to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Specifically, Direct Relief is taking the following measures to combat the COVID-19 pandemic:
- Providing assistance in the form of personal protective equipment, or PPE, for health workers
- Building an ICU medication model and mobilizing private resources to build a stockpile to assist with anticipated spike in ICU patients
- Boosting support to safety-net facilities to address existing chronic gaps that are likely to grow
- Collaborating with infectious disease epidemiologists, technology companies and public agencies to use aggregated mobility data to support the COVID-19 response
