#NerfNationTogether against COVID-19 Globally

UPDATE: In 3 weeks, the Nerf community has raised $362.45 CAD for COVID-19 relief around the world! I've also donated $200 myself, bringing our total to $562.45! Thank you all who've donated and shared this fundraiser <3


COVID-19 is causing destruction around the world, especially in places that may not immediately cross our minds. In countries riddled with conflict, disasters, and food insecurity, the novel coronavirus could have a devastating impact on societies where health systems are not prepared for a pandemic. 


I’ve spent a great deal of time researching different charities and thinking of how I could use my online influence in a positive way. That led to the creation of the #NerfNationTogether campaign. Being in the Nerf hobby for 9 years has shown me that the Nerf and blaster community is creative, passionate, and willing to help others. We may be isolated, but we can still band together to do some good.


Goal: Raise at least $1000 in 3 weeks (by May 14th) for World Vision Canada, an organization providing COVID-19 relief around the world.


Here’s how you can help in 3 steps.

Step 1: Donate!

Step 2: Take a photo of your favorite Nerf blaster + piece of paper with #NerfNationTogether written on it (or use a free-to-use photo instead, the link is below).

Step 3: Post the photo on social media. In the description, use the hashtag #NerfNationTogether and tag 3 other people to encourage them to participate in the campaign.
