As you all know the pandemic COVID-19 has affected all of our lives. One way or another we are all facing an unexpected crisis that has placed the world at a stand still. Today in the midst of confusion and fear we worry about our loved ones, sudden unprecedented financial obstacles, and an overall anxiety for whats to come. We are in survival mode and I firmly believe we can get through these difficult times as a unit. The things we will never take for granted we will now value the most, and I for one will never take for granted the importance of cultivating memories created with my loved ones. During this time both Mr Chow locations in NYC will be closed until further notice. As we all know the hospitality industry relies manly on tips by services rendered. No services rendered will mean no money for the employees. My goal is to raise enough money so that my co-wokers can earn some form of financial aid during these drastic times. This will be divided among the employees who receive tips and minimum wage as salary. Every bit helps.
Who: This donation will be evenly distributed to the employees of both NYC locations (Tribeca and 57th). All of those who have become job- less due to the current situation. (dishwashers, chefs, waiters, assistant servers etc.) Between both locations we have about 80 plus employees.
What: This donation will help those who have families, children and other dire necessities (food, medicine etc.) makes end meet.
Where: All donations will go to the employees of both locations in NYC. (57th and Tribeca)
Why: As of yet there is no foreseeable future when the restaurant will re-open. It could be two weeks. It could be two months. Any amount donated is an enormous help. I can assure you that both locations will be celebrating the value of compassion and humanity. Your charity will be helping so many people in a time of need. Not to mention I will be eternally grateful. We are better together.
How: Share the link with as many as you can. Spread the word. Donate whatever amount you can.
Together we can prove that acts of generosity are more contagious than any virus.
