"Yet, as only New Yorkers know, if you can get through the twilight, you'll live through the night." --Dorothy Parker
This is the time for New Yorkers to stand up. Stand up for the city we love so much that has given us so much. The city has risen up before through the hardest of times, but we haven't been through anything like this. This will take all of us standing together to help each other.
COVID-19 will devastate the entire country, but it’s the most vulnerable New Yorkers — people living in poverty — who will be hit the hardest. The numbers are growing: This pandemic has also brought so many New Yorkers to the edge of poverty for the first time – including our restaurant workers, shopkeepers, theater actors, and more. New York wouldn’t be New York without them — and they need our help now more than ever.
Our goal is for the Relief Corp to get 1 million people to give $10, or whatever they can, to help New Yorkers most in need.
No organization is as effective and well prepared as Robin Hood. They have already distribute $15 million to 156 organizations that fight poverty every day. Robin Hood covers all overhead expenses, so 100% of your donation will go directly to those who need it most.
We are heartbroken. We are also determined. Determined to stand up for the city we love so much. New York will rise above this, too. Please join us.
