My name is Seth Varner, or as most of you probably know me as, DailyNBAFact. Today, April 4, 2020, is my birthday-and it comes during what is, without a doubt, one of the craziest experiences I've ever had to endure throughout my life. I want to do what I can to help.
COVID-19 (more commonly know as the Coronavirus) is spreading rapidly across the globe. As of this writing, there have been nearly 1.1 million confirmed cases, and over 58,000 deaths. With easing passing day, this virus is forcing countless numbers of American workers into unemployment, and with unemployment can come potential homelessness. During high school, I attended three separate, week-long mission trips to inner-city Chicago, and it showed me just how important it is to support organizations such as homeless shelters and food pantries in a time of need: now more than ever!
Unlike many individuals across the world right now, I am not in a state of need. My family and I have everything we need to get through this pandemic. So, for my birthday, all I'm asking is that you donate a few dollars to this campaign. Nothing more, nothing less. I simply ask that you help somebody less fortunate than you during one of the most unprecedented times in recent memory.
All donations raised through the fundraiser will go directly to Feeding America, the nation's largest domestic hunger-relief organization. According to their website, $1 = 10 meals for those who need it most. If we can raise $1000, we can provide at least 10,000 meals to families in need across the nation.
