The Federal Government is sending out $440Billion in stimulus checks this month

That's enough money to buy every NFL football team 4 times 🤯

For some, that $1,400 will go towards groceries and rent... its “keep the lights on” money.

For others, we've been working from home. We might be going a little stir crazy, but we’re not struggling to pay the bills.

If you're in that second boat, consider sending part of your check to someone you know who's had a rough past few months.
