ER Nurse Elena needs your help

As an ER nurse in a high-level trauma center in the Bronx, Elena experienced the firsthand effects of Covid-19. When this pandemic hit, not only was the hospital turned upside down, so was the condition of her home life. 

 With all three children home from school, Elena’s family has had to adjust to a new lifestyle together. They live in a cramped apartment where the living room couch is now Elena’s bed. The extreme physical and emotional stress that ER nurses face on a daily basis require them to be well rested and energized. We are asking you to help us power Elena back up.

Our mission is to raise $20,000.
With your donations, we plan to renovate her apartment in two areas. 
1. Create a bedroom sanctuary for Elena to recharge so she can be the best nurse her patients love and deserve.
2. Create a bedroom where her children can sleep, study and work on their charity (which creates and has already made hundreds of face shields for hospital staff).

 Elena is a caring, selfless person who advocates for others.  She is passionately devoted to her profession as a nurse and works hard to improve the lives of others.
Now it’s time to return the favor and advocate for her.

 Please watch our short video and know that any donation big or small will be life changing.
