5 Ways to Help Others this Holiday During COVID-19
1. Donate to children in need
The world’s children need us now more than ever. Growing up in a deadly pandemic, children's fundamental rights to health, education and protection are under threat.
Save the Children is right now engaged in the most sweeping humanitarian response in our over 100-year history. We aim to protect the lives and futures of a generation of children but need your support to make this work possible.
This holiday, a donation to Save the Children can help make change that transforms children's lives – and the future we all share.
2. Help health care workers care for COVID-19 patients
Protective equipment, testing supplies and other resources are essential to health care workers' ability to care for COVID-19 patients. That's why this year, it's more important than ever to get a flu vaccine. Doing so may reduce demand for testing and will help doctors identify and diagnose cases of COVID-19 more easily.
While the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) notes that getting a flu vaccine will not prevent COVID-19, they do tell us it will reduce the burden of flu illnesses and hospitalizations on the health care system thus conserving critical COVID-related supplies.
3. Raise your voice
The holidays are as good a time as any to use your voice – and your social networks – to take action on critical issues that impact children.
Together with our political advocacy arm, Save the Children Action Network (SCAN), Save the Children champions the rights of the world’s 2.3 billion children. You can join us and help create change for children.
4. Reach out often to loved ones
The 2020 holiday season may look different for friends and families this year. As travel restrictions and social distancing guidelines encourage us to stay home to help prevent the spread of COVID-19, it's more important than ever to stay connected.
From checking in by phone to scheduling weekly video chats, keeping in touch is a powerful way to help others. A simple call may have the ability to help relieve anxiety and keep the winter blues at bay.
5. Give holiday gifts that keep giving
This year, the people on your holiday gift-giving list can feel good knowing your gift to them helps a child in need. Save the Children's gift catalog provides so many ways give every child the best chance for success.
