An exciting initiative is underway as a rapid response effort from Stand Together and Family Independence Initiative to get cash assistance into the hands of families most affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. Stand Together has supported Coalfield Development and we are honored to share this with our friends, family, and neighbors. In times like these, simple acts of kindness can remind people who are struggling that they’re not alone—whether it’s calling an elderly person who lives alone, sending groceries to someone you know needs them, mailing a card to someone whose graduation was cancelled, or anything else.
When you share that act of kindness on social media, $500 will be donated to #GiveTogetherNow, an initiative that provides direct cash assistance to families struggling through the COVID-19 crisis.
Yes, it’s that simple. See full terms and conditions at GiveTogetherNow.org.
Here are a few simple guidelines:
• Capture your act of kindness. Simply post a 30-second video or photo with a description. Share a short video that explains your act of kindness and why you did it. Not a video person? A photo with a written description will work fine as well. Really camera-shy? Write it out, but we ask that you capture what you did, why you did it, and what it meant.
• Post your act of kindness to Facebook, Instagram, Twitter or the GiveTogetherNow.org website. Any of these are fine!
• Use the #GiveTogetherNow hashtag. That’s how we’ll find your post. A community manager will find your post and will let you know that a $500 direct cash payment to a family in need will be matched on your behalf. Congratulations!
• And don’t forget to make your post public. Many people like to keep their Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter accounts private, limited to close friends and family—for the community managers to find your post, the post needs to be publicly accessible.
That’s it. Follow those simple guidelines to submit your story to #GiveTogetherNow and a donor will provide a one-time $500 direct cash payment to a family impacted by COVID-19. 100% will go directly to a family.
