Covid-19 Response Fund - Checkout and donate
Since the initial unfolding days of the pandemic back in March last year, we have launched an option at checkout to donate a $5 contribution to the World Health Organization Covid-19 Response fund through the Goodcoin Foundation in exchange for a 10% discount on your purchase. Thanks to the efforts of the Paul Rich community, we were able to raise several thousand dollars to help WHO acquire the necessary means to combat the pandemic. Barely a year has passed and the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine is being distributed in many countries around the world. It is heartwarming to see how people can unite together in a common cause. And for that compassion, we would like to ask for your help once more and use our blog medium to remind you about the fund, because we believe you, the Paul Rich community, can achieve even more than what we have already done in the direction of mitigating the consequences of the pandemic.
The fight is far from over, there are communities in low-resource settings around the world struggling with a lack of essential commodities. Your $5 donation does not only go to coordinating the research, development and distribution of the vaccine around the world, but also helps WHO distribute these fundamental necessities to said communities. UNICEF and the World Food Programme are as well committed to providing resources to those in dire need of them and are included in the Fund. The donations also go toward the noble cause of helping and protecting refugees and Internally Displaced People around the globe in places such as Syria and Gaza thanks to the United Nations Refugee Agency, the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East. Last but not least, your benefaction will also go to the World Organization of the Scout Movement to ensure minimized impact of the pandemic on youth all around the world.
At such a small price you can do so much. All the workers in these organizations have been working exhaustively to battle not only the virus itself but also the effects it brought upon worldwide. A little gesture of empathy makes the world a better place every day. Next time you are thinking of getting a timepiece, please consider donating.
