Our nation is facing a crisis of a lifetime, of a century. Our health and financial future depends on each person committing to social distancing. But social connection is fundamental to who we are as a nation and how we will move forward together.
The CDC offers in their guides the following to cope with the crisis and something Odyssey’s work can deliver:
“Connect with family, friends, and others in your community.”
Americans thrive being together – from congregating on the sabbath or Sunday, to social justice events, to friends and family get togethers.
Connecting is critical now to balance our lives, support each other and celebrate the power of humanity.
As we navigate our new world, Odyssey Impact is creatively finding ways to connect us and share hope through film resources, hosting Live Town Halls, and creating a special series focused on healing the health care heroes.
Shared experiences keep the sense of community and compassion alive.
As all of us are faced with the economic impact of this crisis. If you are able, supporting a non profit like Odyssey Impact is so important to sustain our needed mission through the crisis.
Please consider supporting Odyssey, and know that your consideration, your friendship and gift are all important to us. If you cannot give right now but wish to stay connected with Odyssey Impact, let us know and email [email protected].
COMPASSION IN ACTION
Human connection is fundamental to who we are as a society. When we learn about one another’s story, share our hopes and dreams, and allow people to know us, we create compassion and mutual understanding that, when nurtured, can grow for years to come.
Through documentaries and engagement programs, Odyssey Impact’s work offers insights into stories of social injustice and racial divides while our engagement campaigns help people have brave and healing conversations. Designed to inspire and empower our nation’s changemakers, our work connects communities, drives social change, and, ultimately, heal.
This is our time. We must continue telling powerful, human stories that connect us and empower changemakers to sustain critical conversations and movements. We want to catalyze these actions, support this work, and navigate this new world – together.
Your donation will support The Compassion Fund, a newly launched initiative helping to ensure our much-needed resources will be available for our communities and you.
