Businesses Ask How Can We Help During the COVID-19 Crisis

Large or small businesses, there’s no limit to how to give support.

Businesses all over the nation are stepping up and asking the question, “How can we help?” during the COVID-19 crisis. At least that is one positive thing that’s been happening since this awful pandemic started.

Many are following up quickly on their offers to lend a hand, and are doing more than merely taking photo ops.

Businesses Give Support

Recently, Kia Motors donated one million dollars, to their charitable initiative called “Accelerate the Good,” a relief effort designed to help those most affected by COVID-19, as well as helping to prevent the further spread.

Kia’s million-dollar pledge will particularly help charities that are “…dedicated to ending the plight of homeless youth nationwide.”

According to one report, this contribution is in addition to Kia’s “…earlier donations of N95 masks and surgical grade gloves made to medical centers throughout Orange County, California.”

Anyone Can Help

One of the biggest mistakes that any of us can make, is to think that there’s nothing we personally can do. The truth is, anyone can help. There is always something you can do.

Other well-known companies have given support in various ways, like these two:

Subaru [Donates 50 million meals to Feeding America]

Charmin [Donates 2,000 rolls of toilet paper to school]

Clearly, not every business or company can donate a million dollars, or in some cases, a million anything.

No Limit to Giving

It’s a great feeling to see that there has been such an outpouring of giving. And just like there is no limit to the amount of giving, there is no limit to the ways that we can give.

Last month (April), a CNN news report told how “A Facebook group matches RVs that are sitting idle with health care workers who need a place to isolate after long hospital shifts.”

Whether you’re a big company, a small business, an independent contractor, or a part time freelancer; your acts of kindness are  of value.

“Great acts are made of small deeds.”  –  Lao Tzu

The above quote really helps us appreciate that no good deed is ever too small.

So do what you can, when you can, where you can, to lend a helping hand during the COVID-19 era.
