BeyGOOD partners with Jack Dorsey’s #startsmall to support COVID-19 relief

Beyonce Supports COVID-19 Relief

 

Beyonce’s BeyGOOD recognizes the immense mental and personal health burdens being placed on essential workers during the COVID-1 9 pandemic. In our major cities, African-Americans comprise a disproportionate number of workers in these indispensable occupations, and they will need mental health support and personal wellness care, including testing and medical services, food supplies and food deliveries, both during and after the crisis.

BeyGOOD has partnered with Jack Dorsey’s #startsmall to provide $6 million in funding to organizations providing mental wellness services, through a key national partnership with UCLA. The initiative is also partnering with the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) to offer local support in Houston, New York, New Orleans and Detroit. Personal wellness support will aid the following organizations; United Memorial Medical Center, Bread of Life, Mathew 25, and others.

NAMIWalks Your Way Greater Houston:      A Virtual Event

NAMIWalks Your Way means what it sounds like: With so many of our lives compromised and constrained, you get to make NAMIWalks your own, and as a virtual walk, Virtually anything goes! You can walk around your block, you can walk around your garden, you can walk with a wok in your kitchen. If you work from home, now you can walk at home. You can stand on your head. You can a form a team and see who is the funniest, fastest or most artistic. You can “Hula hoop for hope.” You can self-fundraise while you self-quarantine — or do it as part of a team. We are joining forces with other NAMI affiliates around the country to come together on the same day, May 30th, at the end of Mental Health Awareness month to make this a powerful and memorable event for all.

During this time while we are engaging in physical distancing to minimize the spread of COVID-19, We are fully committed to our mission and forging social connection using technology.

Your attendance at our virtual walk will be greatly appreciated. Our NAMI Walks event on May 30th is also still on. Check back for more details or contact Jessica McDaniel at jmcdaniel@namigreaterhouston.org, or 713-970-4424 to stay in the loop for any changes or alternative event formats.

Americans are reporting high levels of emotional distress from the coronavirus pandemic — levels that some experts warn may lead to a national mental health crisis.
