And while the major health organizations have the big things under control, there are still ways to support victims of COVID through donating, volunteering, and spreading awareness about the work that’s left to be done.
Here's a list of organizations that are currently accepting help during the pandemic, along with other ways you can make a difference:
Support Founders Of Women-Owned Businesses
Small businesses, particularly those owned by women, were hit hard in the pandemic: they were forced to closed temporarily, shutter completely, or pivot indefinitely. Starting Friday, May 14, you can support female business owners who have been impacted by coronavirus by joining a collaboration between global food and personal care supplier Unilever, and career and personal growth platform Luminary. By going to EveryDayUDoesGood.com and shopping female-founded businesses on the Luminary Collective, or investing in women by funding Illumination Grants, you can directly aid women who have been affected by coronavirus. As a part of the aid effort, Luminary will be also offering free access to their coaching, consulting, and community building resources for professionals through the end of May.
