Please support your local businesses during this time. If you are able, buy gift cards, safely get takeout food, and leave a generous tip. Make donations to local charities; it is simple and can be done online within a few minutes.
Every Tuesday is an opportunity to give back. Kari, Ryan, and I helped serve hundreds of hot meals at Table & Aid and arrived with donations in hand. Table & Main restaurant was temporarily closed because of the virus and repurposed to feed those in need — no questions asked — just to help others. This is the definition of community and service. My friend, Ryan Pernice, is a real community hero. Light always comes out of darkness. Find your light and let it shine.
Other things you can do:
I partnered with my friend, John Barber of SpeedPro Imaging, to produce signs to be placed outside of health care facilities and offices of first responders and local governments to recognize these workers for keeping Georgians safe during the COVID-19 crisis. John generously donated his time and services for this project.
We started with WellStar North Fulton Hospital, then traveled to all the north Fulton and Woodstock police and fire stations to spread our message of gratitude, and the “Heroes Work Here” signs helped to boost morale and keep the positive vibes going. I cannot thank these workers enough for all they do to keep our communities safe and healthy.
Be safe, be smart, be gracious, and God Bless America!
