Covid-19: SumOfUs members in trouble

Hi A -- I just wanted to make sure you caught the email I sent you yesterday.

Hundreds of your fellow SumOfUs members have told us they need help during this crisis: to pay mounting bills, get legal advice, or even just to buy food.

If you can afford it, can you chip in a little to help them? You’ll throw a lifeline to another member reading this email.

We'll distribute 100% of your gift to SumOfUs members in need, and you'll show them they're not alone.

If you’ve saved your payment information with SumOfUs, your donation will go through immediately:

Thanks for all that you do,
Deborah

Thousands of SumOfUs members and their families are struggling during this COVID-19 crisis.

Here at SumOfUs, we always do everything we can to show up for each other. If you’re able, will you give a bit to a fellow... SumOfUs member in need?

A,

Heads up - this isn’t the typical email you get from me.

But these aren’t typical times.

Someone else reading this exact same email right now, is in crisis. They’re out of work and trying to keep up with bills, find childcare, and buy groceries.

So today, I’m not asking you to sign a petition, or chip in for a lawsuit. Today, for the first time ever, I’m asking you to help a fellow SumOfUs member in need.

I worked around the clock to put together a page on our website for members like you to ask for help.

And there are already hundreds of urgent requests from fellow bee-protecting, corporate-greed-smashing, rainforest-saving members like you – caring people like you. But right now, they’re people in dire need of some care themselves.

I’m determined to get help to as many people in our community as possible. Will you help out too? If you chip in CA$98 today, then we’ll pool donations together and distribute it all to fellow SumOfUs members in need.

When Tom lost his business, he tried to become a gig driver for DoorDash...only to have his car break down on day 3. He couldn’t afford to fix it.

But because Tom is a SumOfUs member, he knew about our global support platform, where people can ask each other for help. So he took a leap of faith and posted his story. And A, someone like you chipped in to help him. Tom said:

It was the greatest thing ever. I still tear up in my eyes when I think of it. This person doesn't know and will probably never meet me, but they helped me regardless. I’ll never be able to thank that person enough.”

A, will you help, too? There’s still hundreds of more urgent requests from people like Tom — single parents out of work, people struggling to pay their rent.

Even if you’ve never met them, these are the people that fought with you to take on the biggest corporations in the world. You’ve worked with them to save the bees, protect human rights, and fight for our planet.

If you chip in a bit today, we’ll distribute 100% of your gift to these members in need. There’s over 600 requests, but we’ll do our best to send something to everyone. You can make sure your fellow SumOfUs members know they aren’t alone.

Thanks for all that you do,
Deborah, Danny, and the team at SumOfUs
