Fuel the Fight - Austin

Inspired by Georgetown Alumnus, Cole Berman, and his friends' efforts in Philadelphia, I have decided to bring their spirit to Austin to support local health workers and restaurants. They have raised over $585k in the past month across 18 cities globally. We plan on recreating their efforts in Austin. We will be determining the first hospital soon, and the meals will come from a handful of local restaurants.

100% of the money raised will purchase food from local restaurants who are reeling from the coronavirus while feeding our healthcare workers on the front-lines battling this pandemic.

Using your donations, we spend $250-1,000 per meal to feed 25-100 hospital workers. Each day we will withdraw the money and buy from local restaurants to feed workers in our local hospitals. Every dollar spent is accounted for by Fuel the Fight movement to do good in the Austin community.

Here's what we're doing:

1. We're partnering with local restaurants that are struggling to survive and providing local hospitals with catered meals for all of their healthcare workers. 
2. We're creating a Gofundme to raise money to support these heroes during this incredibly difficult time, 100% of donations will be used to support local business and feed our healthcare heroes.
3. Depending on the funds we raise, we will provide as many meals to Austin-area hospitals as we can!

Here's how you can help:

1. Whether it's $1 or 1,000,000 dollars, it doesn't matter. Anything helps. 
2. Do your part and stay inside. This isn't a joke; it's not a drill; it's the most severe global crisis that has ever happened to any human being alive today, don't take it lightly.

Thank you for your consideration and support!

We are hoping to provide food to departments within Travis County Hospitals. If you know of anyone at these hospitals, please let us know!
