This week, instead of focusing on the stock market, we would like to focus on positive events, resources, and opportunities. There really is a light at the end of the tunnel.
People are coming together to express their gratitude for first responders and healthcare professionals. From New York’s nightly Clap Because We Care event to volunteers making and donating PPE, we are seeing signs of community resilience.
Organizations are making content free for those who are staying at home. Whether you want to watch opera, football, basketball, or HBO, you have new opportunities to watch for free. Plus, you can work out with a digital personal trainer from Golds Gym or learn alongside your kids with Scholastic.
Celebrities are making a difference through major donations and educational initiatives. Watch Bill Gates talk about why he’s donating $100 million for research and vaccine testing, or read about Pink’s decision to donate to Temple University Hospital after her and her son’s recovery from COVID-19.
Resources are readily available from the US Department of Labor to help workers and employers; from the American Psychiatric Association for people who need some help coping with these challenging times; and the National Institute of Health, among many other places.
Let’s all work together to make the best of the situation. As always, if you need us, we are just a phone call away.
