COVID19 ARTISTS RELIEF PROJECT
"The recent global health crisis has had a huge impact on the arts industry. Artists, musicians, and performers dependent on live events and face-to-face interactions have lost their main source of income, and it is uncertain when (and if) they will be able to resume their livelihood as normal.
Now is the time to give back to these artists, musicians, and performers, who contribute so much to the joy, vibrancy, and quality of our lives and culture.
The Artist Relief Project is collecting donations from those with the means to help. Funds will support artists in any discipline, who have been directly impacted by event cancellations and venue closures due to COVID19-related health concerns. The funds raised will offer relief to artists in the immediate short term in the form of a one-time stipend and in the long term in the form of resources for alternative, sustainable economic opportunities."

About Direct Relief
Direct Relief COVID19 RELIEF is working in various ways to contribute toward COVID19 relief including:
Working in overdrive to get protective gear and critical care medications to as many health workers as possible, as quickly as possible, with emergency deliveries leaving daily for medical facilities across the U.S.
Coordinating with public health authorities, nonprofit organizations and businesses in the U.S. and globally to provide personal protective equipment and essential medical items to health workers responding to coronavirus (COVID-19).
Staging personal protective equipment with regional response agencies across the world, including in the Caribbean and South America through the Pan American Health Organization.
As case totals grow, Direct Relief is focusing on the four key areas of activity:
Providing assistance in the form of personal protective equipment, or PPE, for health workers
Building an ICU medication model and mobilizing private resources to build a stockpile to assist with anticipated spike in ICU patients
Boosting support to safety-net facilities to address existing chronic gaps that are likely to grow
Collaborating with infectious disease epidemiologists, technology companies and public agencies to use aggregated mobility data to support the COVID-19 response
