Fund for Families of Deceased Essentials- COVID-19

Being one of the most densely populated cities in the world, New York was drastically hit and impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.  

I want to thank everyone for donating money to help our New York State front-line workers during such a hectic and tragic time. Unfortunately, a great number of these essential workers lost their lives trying to keep us alive. Families of these deceased essential workers have been struck by an unexpected loss, some of which were dependent on these workers as their main providers.

I am starting this fundraiser because I believe this issue has been undermentioned. All the money being raised will go to New York State to be fairly distributed among the families who lost the members under the conditions below:

1) Deceased worked in New York State during COVID-19 pandemic;
2) Was an essential front-line worker as depicted by NYS Government;
3) Eligible families are IMMEDIATE families, including children, present spouses, and parents of the deceased due to COVID-19;
4) Immediate families MUST present a death certificate with       COVID-19 as the cause of death;
5) The date and time of death must be stated on the death certificate while the pandemic was officially in place as announced by WHO (World Health Organization).

We are currently searching for an attorney who will be willing to aid us with money transition to NYS for distribution. We are asking for pro bono lawyer services.  Please comment down below if you would like to help.

When you choose to donate, I hope you feel fortunate to be alive and blessed enough to help these families. I will be the first individual to donate from my personal funds. I am doing this service for free and I hope you will feel as grateful as I am to do such a good deed for others.
