Call for chessed opportunities and donations!
I am messaging about two opportunities for chessed/tzedaka during the COVID-19 pandemic.
1. There is currently a need at hospitals for iPads to help services complete virtual rounds in an effort to reduce disease transmission. If you have an iPad you are willing to donate/lend for the foreseeable future, please send me an email at <noamgrysman@...>. Must be iPad 2 or later, and comfortable of factory reset for privacy purposes. Alternatively, monetary donations to allow units to purchase iPad or virtual health equipment would also be greatly appreciated.
2. As someone close to (but not directly on) the front lines dealing with the COVID-19 Pandemic, I see every day that despite the risks, health care workers are coming into work every day to care for the ill, despite the risk they expose themselves to. Showing our healthcare workers encouragement, kindness, patience and support at this time is of utmost importance. One way to do this is to send pictures and letters of support to our hospital workers:
This is how it can be done:
Staff right now are also stressed with the current outbreak, but they remain dedicated to their job, and are putting their health on the line, especially with all the mask rationing currently going on. This would really help.
Thanks for your kindness!
