Ricochet is the best place on the internet to discuss the issues of the day, either through commenting on posts or writing your own for our active and dynamic community in a fully moderated environment. In addition, the Ricochet Audio Network offers over 50 original podcasts with new episodes released every day.
How can you help fight the evil virus and help the people suffering from the economic disaster? Here are some ideas if you need them. But if you don’t need them, please consider adding them in comments–someone else might need your ideas!
First, stuff you’re already doing might be a tremendous help. Do what you can to stay healthy so you’re not the next one who needs help. If you still have an honest job, keep up the good work! That job is a huge priority right now; the unhappy world needs all the economic productivity it can get!
Second, those of us who can afford to make a financial contribution can find lots of worthy causes. Samaritan’s Purse built the field hospital in Central Park. I’m a fan of Baptist Global Response. There are worthy homeless ministries and food banks from your corner of North America all the way to Hong Kong.
Third, some of us can donate blood.
Fourth, help your neighbors, friends, and family. Donate eggs or toilet paper. Mow someone’s lawn if the cops aren’t gonna hassle you too much over it.
Fifth, sew masks. Them things are central to the (relatively) good numbers in Hong Kong, Singapore, and South Korea.
Seventh, whatever I left out. You tell me!Published in
