Thank you to the helpers – the helpers, the front line workers, the essential workers…
There are so many names that we could call you, but there are two important words that must be said. Thank you.
Thank you for risking your life for us. That sounds absolutely surreal. Thank you for walking towards danger to keep us fed, safe, taught, cared for, and protected.
As we start to slowly pull off the band aid, we are looking around and some of us are unsure how to emerge out of this strange cocoon that we’ve created. We could use a little hope. We could use a little joy, and some stories of the brave.
We would love to hear your stories.
We would love to know your neighbors’ stories. Please send them in! We would be honored to hear them! Over the next few days, we will be sharing community businesses who will be joining us in honoring the helpers! Keep an eye on our Instagram and Facebook pages!
Five submissions will be nominated and their stories will be shared publicly. One submission, chosen by popular vote, will receive a basket full of incredible gifts!
Maybe it was the nurse that flew to New York to volunteer. Maybe it was the teacher that rallied and kept her 32 students feeling safe and connected, while managing her own home and children with grace. Maybe it was the principal that filled cars with necessities when they learned that a family was unemployed. Maybe it was the grocery store employee that woke up before the sun to make sure everything had been stocked and cleaned.
We need these stories. We need to know about the helpers. Will you share them with us? Help us say thank you to the helpers! Please send them to [email protected] with the subject line “2020 Hero” by June 14th, 2020. Our team cannot wait to read them!
