COVID-19 can bring out the GOOD in all of us!
This week, Atlanta Community Food Bank made the (necessary) decision to avoid gathering thousands of people together for this year's Hunger Walk Run. HOWEVER, the walk is still ON: the event has gone virtual, and that means you do not have to be in Atlanta (or even outside) to participate. As one of our generous donors put it, "[What] an incredible way to make lemonade when life throws us Coronavirus lemons!!"
Social distancing does not mean feeling DISTANT: there are so many ways to connect and do good, even while you are hunkered down at home, washing your hands (again):
- Join the virtual hunger walk by taking a pic while walking in your neighborhood, rocking your treadmill, or spinning on your bike this weekend, share it and tag @goodsteps (or email it to firstname.lastname@example.org)! In addition to giving yourself and your family a much needed coronavirus news break, we will be randomly selecting participants and donors to receive a brand spanking new GoodSteps dri-fit shirt and other GoodSteps swag.
- Donate to Atlanta Community Food Bank HERE, or to your local food bank HERE to provide much needed help to families and seniors already facing hunger: a donation of $25 will help provide 100 meals and keep essential food bank services going.
- Check on elderly and other at-risk neighbors and friends: ask to do their shopping/errands for them, or drop them a text or FaceTime call. Stay connected while staying healthy and keeping them healthy!
- Support small and local businesses! Even if you cannot physically go and support them, you can do a lot to help keep them going: order a delivery, do some online shopping, leave a review, purchase a gift card to use later, or give a shout out in social media. Every little bit helps!
Stay healthy and keep taking #goodsteps ❤️
