Elderly homes are very vulnerable during these times of COVID-19. To ensure less stress and more joy within the walls of elderly homes, I ask for pieces of your best art. This can be in the form of a card, a painting, or a small sketch it just has to be creative and enthusiastic.
Learn In Shelter
Learn in Shelter was started by a group of high school students in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Many students are struggling with transitioning to remote learning and lack the support needed to continue their education. We aim to provide individualized attention to each student to supplement their learning.
Letters Against Isolation
Our volunteers' handwritten letters of joy and positivity help fight senior loneliness! We write to over 1,500 seniors, and need your help to reach them all. This is an excellent project for anyone from children to seniors! Write as many or as few letters as you can.
Smile Card provides a smile to over 80 senior centers during the COVID-19 pandemic. Take a moment, all you need is a paper and pen. Submitted digital artwork will be added to a gallery so that senior shelters and hospitals can share it with their residents or patients. Email us a card, letter, poem, or other piece of artwork (in the form of a JPEG) to spread the joy and put a smile on someone's face. Join the effort to bring smiles to seniors.
Calling all Kindergarten to 12th grade student musicians! Do you like to sing? Do you play an instrument? During the COVID-19 pandemic, come and join student musicians in Maryland, USA to share your love and music talents with senior residents in the Assisted Living facilities. All music levels and music genres are welcome! You can practice at home, perform, record your performance, and then send us the link to your performance video (ex: YouTube, Vimeo, TikTok, Instagram or simply place in the iCloud, Google Drive or Dropbox). We will consolidate into one playlist every week to be broadcasted at several Assisted Living facilities that have partnered with us.
To be considered for volunteering in our Virtual Concerts, all student volunteers and their parents/legal guardians must read, complete and e-sign our "Volunteer Release Permission and Waiver of Liability Agreement", which is a document that is included at the end of our sign-up form here.
Word of Thanks
Amid this COVID-19 pandemic, we should all take a moment to thank our healthcare workers. They are working on the front lines, helping fight this disease! Words of Thanks is a program that allows US residents from any state to write various types of "thank you" letter to healthcare workers in their area.
