100 Day Challenge: Week 3
It’s strange to say, but time flies by. We are already in our 4th week of sheltering at home and also this week we have seen great acts of generosity and kindness. I publish daily on my blog 100 day challenge and I’m sending you a weekly summary.
By clicking on the underlined text, you can read the full story.
HelloFresh, the leading meal kit company is donating 800.000 meals and their customers have donated an additional 30.000. The company also teamed up with basketball players of the New York Knicks to donate $180,000 worth of meals to help feed New Yorkers who are struggling. HelloFresh is doing great business now and it’s nice to see how they give back to the community.
Tiense Suiker, a sugar refinery based in Belgium, has decided to shift a part of their production to manufacture hand sanitizers. The hand sanitizer will be given to hospitals and health authorities free of charge and will also be used to protect their own employees. By showing great flexibility, Tiense Suiker will hopefully help stop the spread of the virus.
It is beautiful to see that many companies are showing great appreciation for healthcare workers. Crocs is donating thousands of pairs of shoes to US healthcare workers every day and pizzerias from around the world are delivering pizzas to hospitals free of charge.
The Belgian supermarket rivals Colruyt and Delhaize have decided to join forces to supply caregivers and medical professionals with grocery deliveries. They give hospital staff the opportunity to have groceries delivered near where they work, free of charge. Unprecedented times bear fruit to unprecedented alliances.
There are also plenty of companies that are offering free services to people who are stuck at home. Broadway will be curating new playlists for anyone hoping to binge watch some seriously stellar performances and Joe Wicks, also known as the Body Coach, is currently wowing the world with his free PE (physical education) classes. He plans to pledge all his earnings generated from the weekday activity videos to doctors, nurses and medical staff.
From the comfort of my home, I am wishing you the very best,
