On #GivingTuesdayNow, Help Kids in Urgent Need During the COVID-19 Crisis

You’ve probably heard of #GivingTuesday, but there’s a new giving day in town — #GivingTuesdayNow — created specifically as a response to the COVID-19 pandemic. ChildFund is working around the clock to protect and support the kids and families we serve during this emergency, and this special day of giving is the perfect moment to join us.

In our first-ever response to a global crisis, we’re responding in full force, working together with other members of the ChildFund Alliance, national and local governments and our local partner organizations to address the unprecedented need caused by COVID-19 — including, most urgently, hunger. As parents and caregivers lose their jobs and food supply chains are disrupted, so many families in poverty are no longer able to put food on the table.

We’re providing financial support to those who are especially vulnerable, whether they’ve lost their income or struggle with disability or illness. And when we’re able to do so safely, we’re also distributing food and basic household items. Today, you can help children facing hunger due to the global crisis in a real, tangible way — when you donate $100, you help feed two families for a month.  

“In this moment that calls on the people of the world to stay apart, we invite you to come together with us in the fight to keep the most vulnerable — children — from paying COVID-19’s terrible price.” – Anne Lynam Goddard, ChildFund’s President and CEO.

As the world struggles through this pandemic, many people are also thinking about the blessings we still have in our lives and how we can share those with others. If you’re looking for a way to help, if you got a stimulus check but you don’t need it as much as others might, if you want to participate in a global moment that will help move us all forward together — the time to give is now.

Please join us to help children facing life-threatening hunger. Together, we can help them stay stable through the crisis and look forward to a brighter future.
