***It is not necessary to donate items/money to get points if you do not have the resources to do so, you can find other opportunities to earn points in the listservs as well as on our ELMS site.
Social Media Post
Please share information regarding COVID-19 (vetted by reputable sources) through a post on social media. The post can talk about steps people need to take to stop the spread of the disease and may include information about common misconceptions or when/how to get tested. This post should include ways that the public can help each other during this time such as link(s) to mutual aid programs. Please send a picture after you post the information to your social media, along with your name and UID to firstname.lastname@example.org.
1-3 points (awarded 3 points maximum)
Donations can be in the form of items or money. If you choose to donate items, one full shopping bag of items will be worth one point, and you can get a maximum of 3 points through sending donations. If you choose to donate money, you will receive 1 point for any donation up to $10. Before you donate, take a picture of the items being donated and save the confirmation email/message, or a receipt for any money donations. Please send this documentation as well as your name and UID to email@example.com.
Here are some links to find mutual aid programs in your area. If you don’t see one near you, consider starting your own mutual aid program! These websites also have directions and contact information to donate to your local mutual aid program.
Hospitals are running out of personal protective equipment, so they encourage the public to make face masks for their own use. If you make a face mask and send a picture along with your name and UID to firstname.lastname@example.org, you will receive 1 point. Here are some instructions to do so: https://www.goodhousekeeping.com/health/a31902442/how-to-make-medical-face-masks/
