WHY ARE WE DOING THIS?
The COVID-19 pandemic took everyone by surprise, and impacted us all. However, it hit some much harder than others. Hundreds of thousands of lives are having to choose between a roof over their head or their meal. I am so fortunate to be able to have resources that others might not have access to, and with that privilege comes a responsibility to give back to my community in any way I can. Individuals, families, local businesses, seniors, homeless people, and people with disabilities are all in need of our help. By contributing to this fundraiser, you'll be benefiting these vulnerable populations and doing your part to help combat this pandemic's effects.
WHERE IS THIS BEING DONATED?
All proceeds will be directly donated to the San Mateo County Strong Fund, which donates 100% of their funds towards three main categories that have been hit especially hard from this Shelter in Place order. The first is to individuals and families covering basic household expenses. They also give to small local businesses, helping them avoid layoffs and stay open/reopen once it is safe. Finally, they donate towards non-profits that provide services to our most vulnerable populations: seniors, homeless individuals, and people with disabilities. I chose the San Mateo County Strong Fund because all of your donations will be directly impacting the local people in our community. For more information, visit https://www.smcstrong.org/.
