This year, the holidays look different. Crowded family parties are giving way to more intimate celebrations, as the COVID-19 numbers continue to climb throughout the country. For many - particularly parents - the pared down festivities mean a little extra where possible: perhaps a few more gifts, favorite desserts after dinners or new traditions that infuse an ounce more of magic into 2020.
However, that little bit of magic isn’t possible for everyone. For many, COVID-19 didn’t just lead to smaller gatherings. It resulted in job loss, reduced hours and other forms of financial instability. Many of our Fellows have seen their incomes reduce over the past 8 months with few signs that it will restore in full any time soon. For them, the holidays will be a reminder of the obstacles they continue to face.
But they don’t have to be. You can help infuse that little bit of magic into their days by helping us fulfill their wishlists. Click here to purchase a gift for a Fellow or their children, making the end of 2020 a little brighter.
