Lets leverage our tight social circles to support friends who may struggle to ask for funds.
A small hobby community I am a part of is pooling funds to support members (friends) who are a few paychecks away from not being able to take care of their basic needs. We are a group of artists, social workers, nonprofit staff, grocery employees, designers, technologists, scientists, united by practicing a particular kind of dance. Those who are able, are giving. Those who need support withdraw anonymously, no questions asked.
In what ways did you change your behaviors as a result of this resource?
We often circle up to cypher freestyle dance. Now we are creating a circle to freely take care of one another.
What information do you feel you are missing about COVID-19?
What medical community is learning about contagion, care, and statistics in real-time.
What populations or personas are not currently being addressed with today’s COVID-19 information?
Informal economy workers. Most on my mind are the street vendors and performers in Peru, as I have family there. Flyers would help, illustrations.
