You never know how much generosity you'll inspire.

Hundreds of millions of Americans are getting $1,200 stimulus checks to fight COVID-19

For some of us, that $1,200 will go towards groceries and rent...it’s “keep the lights on” money.

For others, COVID has us working from home. We might be going a little crazy & really need a haircut, but we’re not counting the days until our savings run out.

If you're in that second boat, consider sending your check to someone you know whose life has been turned upside down by COVID.

How you can help

Have a friend who was laid off?
Help pay their mortgage 🏠

Worried about your favorite restaurant? Leave a $1,200 tip 💸

Hungry to help? $1,200 = 1,200 meals through Feeding America 🧇

Pledging your check is a tangible way to fight COVID-19.
