There’s no denying that the coronavirus pandemic has made 2020 one of the darkest years in recent memories. The pandemic has affected every industry and business throughout the world – from Disneyland closing for the first time since 9/11 to thousands of small businesses shuttering their doors forever.
The effects of COVID-19 reach well beyond the business world. People have lost loved ones, their financial stability, and their general peace of mind. The US Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration reported that, in April 2020, there was a 1,000% increase in calls and texts to its emotional distress emergency hotline compared to April 2019.
There is certainly a lot of gloom and helplessness surrounding the pandemic, but many well-known brands are stepping up to bring some positivity to the world. From DoorDash providing deserving homes with groceries and prepared meals to Adidas donating more than $3 million to the COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund, there are hundreds of popular brands making huge donations to support those in need.
