If you can help from afar...
Do you know how to navigate insurance claims and/or government forms? Offer up your time virtually to walk someone through the piles of paperwork.
Millions of people are left without an income as businesses close their doors. Can you help someone with their job search through resume editing, career coaching or financial planning?
Are you a lawyer or paralegal? Thousands are suddenly in need of free legal advice and don’t know where to turn.
Are you able to send items from afar? Whether it’s a handcrafted piece of art for a child or a homemade jar of jam, you might be able to show people who lost a lot how much they are cared for while making their day a bit easier.
Are you good at logistical support? Many people need help planning routes out of disaster zones, finding open shelters or hotels, and other logistical issues.
Do you have experience hiring qualified contractors or repairmen? Simbi folks need help to rebuild their homes and businesses but don’t know where to start. Give some advice.
Listening and emotional support. Many are dealing with the awful reality of loss and grief, so offering virtual support can be a light that guides someone through the dark tunnel.
