About the Event
This event is completely dedicated to spreading awareness and helping the Asian American community.
May is Asian Heritage Month so the best time to learn about this is right now! At the end of the event, we'll email you and award you your service hours based on the number of informational cards and donations you report to us.
What You're Doing:
Through the link below, you'll find a PDF filled with facts, information, and resources on Asians and their impact in the USA. Your job is to print this PDF out and drop them at the front door of houses in your neighborhood. We've done something very similar at a previous event for Black History Month. Each PDF holds 2 informational cards.
1 service hour for every 5 informational cards delivered.
Along with the main event, we will also be giving service hours for every $5 donated to the India COVID crisis. For example, if you donate $50, you'll receive 10 hours. Through the link below, you'll find a list of organizations to donate to. Receipts are needed to earn service hours.
Why You Should Participate:
Throughout the last few months, two stories have bullied the headlines worldwide: "Anti-Asian Violence" and the "India COVID Crisis". As a community, we need to not only be aware, but proactive, and work to help these two problems come to a halt. Connect Volunteering is dedicated to giving opportunities that matter. If you donate even 2 informational cards, you'll be spreading awareness to at least 2 households and that makes a difference. Contribute something, it doesn't matter how big or small. A $5 contribution to the COVID Relief Funds in India makes a difference. If every person donated just $5, the total final amount would surpass any individual donation. We're stronger as a group and a community, let's once again come together to make a difference.
