COVID Efforts

We care. We share.

Our COVID-19 efforts

The COVID-19 pandemic is unlike what the world has seen before. The world ground to a halt without warning. This invisible foe is proving to be more formidable and fearsome than any conquering army. The first to rush in our defense were our health workers, the front liners. Unlike the trenches of World War I, the front line is not clear and cannot be marked in any map. This unseen enemy fell many in the first wave of front liners who  courageously met this vicious enemy head-on without any protective gear or equipment. Many still don’t have the barest minimum protection. Donations of equipment, food, and supplies are pouring in, yet there can never be more than enough. This benevolence gives hope and encouragement.. The pandemic has become personal to many because almost all have a friend, a neighbor, a daughter or a son, or know of somebody who is in the front lines fighting the battle for us  As this battle rages, we will be donating a portion of the course fees collected to organizations leading the efforts to supply medical and safety supplies to front liners. We will continue to update this page documenting our efforts and sharing ways we can help.
