Single Parent Covid19 Relief Fund

Each morning I wake up and write about different parts of our global population that are being impacted by COVID19. The list is long and complex and the impacts are varied. 

This campaign is specifically designed to help single parents during this time. The challenges of single parenting are only further amplified by this crisis. 

For the first round of funding, I am hoping to raise $5,000. This money will be divided up into $500 direct payments to ten different single parents.  (UPDATE! Each time we reach $1000, I will send out 10 $100 payments) The people who will benefit have very different experiences. They are raising children from newborns to age 14. They are birthworkers, restaurant workers, healing arts practitioners, artists, activists, etc.  

If this first round is successful, I intend to keep it going and send funds to other parents. I will make updates soon about what that might look like.

Ways you can help:

Donate! Without stretching beyond your own financial means, contribute here.

Check in! Call up a single parent you know personally and see how they are doing. Chat with their kids, read them books, order groceries, send them a payment directly, pay one of their bills.

Share! My access to social media is limited. Sharing this campaign is so appreciated and 100% helpful.

Generosity fuels more generosity. And that can take many forms, not just financial.

Let's keep the dialogue going. More soon!
