- “My First Pandemic”: a group anthology on what we learned during the Pandemic. We are collecting short stories (essays of 500-1500 words), along with photos and drawings to accompany them, describing what lessons we have all learned during the Pandemic. We are thinking of collecting advisor stories about what we learned during the Pandemic and making it into an anthology. Would you be interested in writing a short story ? we are looking for a few good examples to launch the project. Deadline is 7/31/21 for submissions. Please email email@example.com if you want to submit.
- Please note that the Pandemic is not over yet. There are new variants which are spreading rapidly (particularly the new Lambda Variant from South America and the Delta Variant from India (both of which are spreading globally). Please mask up and stay vigilant. Please encourage friends and family to get vaccinated if they have not already done so.
Calls to Action
We Love India. We are planning a fundraiser to help India and other LDC’s being hit hard by the current Pandemic. We are hoping to help raise money to send PPE and materials to those most at risk there and to help promote Vaccine Equity. We are planning a possible concert in LA in September based on the theme “Shakti Fest LA” . (“Shakti” means “female empowerment” and we will be raising money for the women only free, private Shakti School in Bengal, India. Please see: www.weloveindia.us and email firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to be involved especially if you have contacts with possible large NGO sponsors.
The US has made a lot of progress in the past few months, but the Pandemic has created a widening of the inequality gap globally see. Working together we can help promote Vaccine Equity, create more social justice, and bring peace in the world.
