The world is grappling with the COVID-19 pandemic, and people everywhere are uncertain about the future of their health, safety, and economic security. During this tumultuous time, GreaterGood is dedicated to assisting in COVID-19 relief efforts in multiple ways. As always, we’re continuing to support our flagship programs that help people, pets, and the planet, but we’ve made it our top priority to support the people impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic and those fighting on the front lines.

As we work diligently to provide some hope and relief to those who need it most, we’re also looking for ways that supporters like you can help. Below, we’ve outlined the ways that we’re making a difference and how you can get involved, too.

Let’s make a difference together.

Increasing Free Clicks On Our Click To Give Sites

User who are already familiar with our Click To Give sites know that by simply clicking a button once a day, you trigger a donation from our sponsors to help people, pets, and the planet. Depending on the site you click on, you can fund food for hungry people and animals, health care, education, and other important causes. Since 1999, the GreaterGood network of sites has donated $60 million to charity.

Normally, users can click once per day per site. However, during the pandemic, we’re increasing the number of times you can click to four times a day (once every six hours) per site. Every additional click will fund disaster relief efforts like donating supplies for overburdened animal shelters, protective gear for front line healthcare workers, and food for those who are struggling.

Making & Donating 90,000 Medical Masks

Lack of PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) has been a significant issue for frontline responders in the U.S. Too many doctors, nurses, and medical staff who normally would discard protective gear like masks after a single use are being forced to reuse them because of extreme shortages. This puts them at risk for contracting the very virus they’re working to beat and contain.

To help with this part of the crisis, we’re working with our apparel suppliers to retool production plans so they can create tens of thousands of high-quality KN95 masks. All of the masks meet hospital requirements and all will be donated to medical workers.

So far, we’ve donated 10,000 of these medical masks. The first batch went to the frontline staff working at the University of Michigan medical center.

Our suppliers are working on another 80,000 masks. We’re still finalizing details on where most of them will be distributed, but 5,000 of them will be going to a Detroit hospital.
