No pressure:). Just wanted to share the list of fundraising efforts/organizations which I support during these difficult times.
As I’ve mentioned earlier, Chicago’s bars were hit hard from day one, because they can’t even switch to the carry-out/delivery. I’ve already posted this fundraiser:
US Beverage Group : https://www.usbgfoundation.org/covid-19-response
And here are two more, for those people who’ve been in Chicago, been there with me, and might remember the people behind the names of the places.
Both of those are relief funds, not to support the business itself, but to give directly to all these people who greeted you with a smile and sent to your tables “desserts on the house.”
And now about most vulnerable people.
I made an additional donation to the Night Ministry. Volunteers can’t help anymore, and you can (or can’t!) imagine what Chicago’s homeless population is experiencing these days.
And also to the Greater Chicago Food depository: https://www.chicagosfoodbank.org/
Their situation was far from perfect even before the current events, and now it is worse than ever.
Also, all of the museums where I am a member promise to extend the membership to the duration of time they are going to stay close. I am planning to renew at my regular time and donate the unused money. And I think I will do the same with my CSO subscription and with Whenever Goodman.
That might be a very egotistical list, but I wanted to share.
