Hi everyone,

May 5 is #GivingTuesdayNow, a global day of COVID-19 relief. Senior Planet has brought together more than 8,300 older adults since COVID-19 began, fighting social isolation and teaching the skills that help people take advantage of essential online services.

If you’re able, you can help support this important work on May 5: CreateShareGive.

1. Create a sign that says: “Why support Senior Planet Now?” and why you love Senior Planet. You can ask friends and family members to do the same!

2. At 3:00 pm ET on May 5, share a picture of yourself holding the sign on your social media and tag @SeniorPlanet. You can ask friends and family members to do the same!

3. Give towards our fundraising goal of $5,000: seniorplanet.org/now
This week, Verizon employees are volunteering to help Senior Planet participants and members with their tech issues. Join our next Verizon Volunteer day to get help with your tech needs. Space is limited so you MUST complete a survey to RSVP. Click here to view the survey.

As always, feel free to email me directly at reception@seniorplanet.org. Have a great week!
