“Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.”
During times of crisis, this quote from Fred Rogers (better known as Mr. Rogers) always rings true.Whether the crisis is an earthquake, a hurricane, or a pandemic, there are always those who step up to help. We’re honored to have had the opportunity to work with many amazing helpers over the past 10 years, and that LuminAID lanterns have been able to help them bring light to those in need.
Though the COVID-19 pandemic is a crisis that calls for a different type of response than a hurricane or an earthquake, we're proud to see people mobilizing to help those who are vulnerable and to keep each other safe, healthy, and fed. We are grateful to frontline healthcare workers, as well as restaurant, grocery, and delivery workers, and everyone who is staying home right now and practicing social distancing.
Here at LuminAID, we started working from home earlier this month and we are continuing to check in with our customers, partners, and vendors. We’re a small business, and we expect things will get tough before they get better, but we also want to be there for our community and actively seek out new ways to help. We’ve put together some ideas, and wanted to share them with you, our community, as well.
