The generosity and spirit of Ohioans has been on ample display these last few weeks. From financial contributions to making masks, donating food or volunteering, the coronavirus has brought out the best in so many people.
On Tuesday, May 5 those in need are asking you to step up and contribute once again. #GivingTuesdayNow is a global day of giving and unity as an emergency response to the unprecedented need caused by COVID-19.
This new day is organized by GivingTuesday, and is being held in addition to the annually scheduled GivingTuesday event that will still take place on December 1, 2020. In partnership with GivingTuesday’s global network of leaders, partners, communities and generous individuals, this event is set to spark an increase in grassroots generosity, citizen engagement, business and philanthropy activation, and support for communities and nonprofits around the world.

The movement is currently focused on opportunities to give back to communities and causes in safe ways that allow for social connection and kindness even while practicing physical distancing.
One of the community campaigns that are part of #GivingTuesdayNow is the Doing Better Initiative – an effort led by Urban Meyer and Corso Ventures to raise money to to fund meals for those in need.
