Times of uncertainty

With the outbreak of COVID-19, we feel a lack of stability and a plaguing attitude of scarcity. We created this newsletter as a way to organize some resources and provide tips on how to move through this discouraging and puzzling time - at a distance. Slowing down gives us time to rest and reflect. Have faith that opportunities are rising from this crisisWe hope you will reach out and share some of the things you're doing to keep the peace in your circle. 

Start a neighborhood chain-mail

Checking in on our direct neighbors is a great way to create a small cloud of comfort within your community. It's simple: write a small note and leave it on your next door neighbor's doorstep.

It could be a note of encouragement, support, ability to deliver necessities for the sick or elderly, or simply offering conversation during this isolating time. At the end of the note, suggest to your neighbor to pass on their own words or services to the next house if they're able. 

Example: "Hello! I live next door at house 3434. My name is Ally and my number is (888)-888-8888. I'm reaching out to offer you support in this unsettling time. If you need any toiletries or food, I'm of able body to deliver them to your doorstep. I'm also free for phone calls if you need a listening ear! If you can, pass on your own note to the house to the right so we can spread some encouragement. 


Buy local now more than ever

Check in with your favorite local and small businesses to see how they are handling the COVID-19 pandemic. 

If their doors are closed, reach out and ask how you can help. You could donate what you spent there last month, or grab a gift card online.
