We are asking attendees to donate and join in the #InOurHands social media movement. Please send all pictures that are taken for social media to firstname.lastname@example.org so we can post your pictures on our social media page as well! We want to make a giant collage and let the world know that we are taking COVID-19 into our hands!
Formerly called American Refugee Committee, this organization works in providing health care and clean water, shelter, protection, and economic opportunity to more than 3.5 million people in 17 countries each year. They work closely with refugees, trafficked persons, and economic migrants, to co-design solutions that help them build full and fulfilling lives – lives that are Alight.
Currently, they are working to stop the spread of COVID-19 in 20 countries and counting. They are collecting funds for isolation units, medical support, personal protective equipment for front line care givers; soap and hand-washing stations, disinfection supplies for medical centers, direct support to local organizations, food aid to those in desperate need, and prevention messaging.
They have also started a movement called “In Our Hands”. Their positive message is that the same hands to rebuild will also fight against COVID-19. They are starting a social media campaign with the hashtag #InOurHands where people are asked to write a message of encouragement or love on your palm with dark marker. Then take a selfie showing both your face and your palms and share it on social media with the hashtag #InOurHands and tag 5 friends to do the same!
We are kindly asking the attendees of Web Con to please donate to Alight to as a thank you for throwing this free, virtual event! All donations can be made below.
