On #GivingTuesdayNow, Act for Kids

Raise Your Voice

May 5 is #GivingTuesdayNow, a new global day of giving and unity as an emergency response to the unprecedented need caused by COVID-19.

While the coronavirus is sparing most children from getting sick, the pandemic is affecting kids in other major ways. Here at home, kids are losing early learning opportunities, with child care centers facing permanent closures. Unaccompanied children at our southern border are being denied safety in our country. And refugees in overcrowded camps around the world are losing their parents to the virus.

Sadly, vulnerable kids will not come out of this crisis unscathed. These kids need a voice. With your help, we can make sure they have one.

Here’s how you can help on #GivingTuesdayNow:


COVID-19 is creating new challenges for children here at home and worldwide.
