You never know how much generosity you'll inspire.

Hundreds of millions of Americans are getting $600 stimulus checks from the Federal Government

For some of us, that $600 will go towards groceries and rent...it’s “keep the lights on” money.

For others, 2020 had us working from home. We might need a haircut, but we’re not struggling to pay the bills.

If you're in that second boat, consider sending your check to someone you know whose life has been turned upside down by 2020.

Who should I donate to?

Have a friend who was laid off?
