We may not be able to physically hug, but virtual hugs are meaningful, too!
Our nurses and doctors are still working so hard to save lives every day. I launched Shea Healing Hands GoFundMe to make the best quality hand lotion and lip balm for them. So many people have contributed – big hugs for you! – nearly $700 total! I hope this #GivingTuesday to raise more to continue helping out these tireless workers.
I have teamed up with our Assembly Member, Harvey Epstein, to deliver the products to frontline workers. Each package includes personal notes with the first names of those who have donated. So far, I’ve made more than 120 products for nurses and doctors, lip balm and hand lotion. Please help me make more!
Thank you to the donors! Judith, Monique, Magali, Patricia, Alexis, Lamont, Sean, Cheryl, Tonya, Susan, Marcella, Rebecca, Diane, Haynee, Tonya (again!), Dave, Diane (again!), Tanya, and Donna. All of your support is like a hug and I send you a hug in return.
The hand-off! A big thank you to Assembly Member Harvey Epstein for making this special delivery to our nurses and doctors! Harvey has been all over the neighborhood, helping people in so many ways!
Where they are saving lives! The products are going to Bellevue Hospital at 27th Street and First Avenue, which was the first hospital in Manhattan to record a case of Covid-19. It is one America’s oldest hospitals.
