A Message to Our Global Community of Supporters

By Danny Stern | Annual Giving Officer

COVID-19 Relief Efforts
COVID-19 Relief Efforts

Now that the U.S. federal government is expected to end the COVID-19 state of emergency on May 11 and New Yorkers have learned to better manage the realities of the pandemic, Children’s Aid has decided to retire this project. But we couldn’t do so without taking this opportunity to express our sincere gratitude to you. We wanted to take a moment to look back at all the incredible work you so generously enabled us to do.

In the beginning of the pandemic, we started this project with a goal of raising $2,500 to help provide a little extra support to our families. Then, when New York City became the epicenter and the world’s eyes turned toward us, more and more generosity poured in. This kindness from both longtime and newer supporters allowed us to continue increasing our goal — and in turn, our impact. We increased the goal to $5,000, then eventually to $50,000 and $100,000. In total, we have delivered over $210,000 worth of COVID-19 relief. That increased amount meant that more children received COVID-19 tests and treatments, more families had access to produce during food shortages, and more parents had someone to turn to when they lost work. Thank you.

As we look back, we want to let you know how touched we were, especially by the outpouring of support from all corners of the world, stretching across the New York City metropolitan area and as far as Australia. It really opened our eyes to what a “global community” means — and how this community helps strangers far away during a crisis. In addition to raising money, this project created countless incredible gestures, including:

  • A major television network encouraged their employees to give to our cause during a holiday season.
  • Online fans of Meghan Markle, called the #SussexSquad, found our project in the early days of the pandemic and rallied their global social media community to generously contribute.
  • Supporters near and far used their milestone moments — baby showers, weddings, and birthdays — to encourage giving from their networks.

As we continue to respond to the most pressing challenges facing New York City’s young people, we hope you will keep us in mind and join us in our other future projects. Thank you again for standing with us during a time of unprecedented changes. It meant so much to us.
