Finding purpose in a pandemic: COVID-19 resources



The global community is facing an unprecedented challenge: one filled uncertainty, anxiety, and interruption. Life as we know it has changed drastically, but despite the COVID-19 pandemic, we continue to hear stories of good. Of people and communities coming together to support small businesses, help elderly neighbors, share resources, and keep their chins up.


This will be the new normal for a few months, at least. It is our hope that this pandemic does not divide us, but brings the global community together--virtually, locally, nationally, and globally.


With that, we are gathering resources and stories of hope to help you and your colleagues cope. We'll be updating this post regularly, so feel free to bookmark and share. And if you have a resource (or a story) to share, please let us know on Twitter at @cc_onpurpose.
