I think we can all use the chizuk....

My husband and I where both laid off temporary from our jobs. His boss called him and told him he has an account in a certain food store and my husband should feel free to put whatever he needs onto his account for pesach.

My youngest brother has been working physically the last 24 hours , without sleep driving from one end of NYC to the other getting as many oxygen concentrators as he could fit in his truck lifting them all by hand and distributing them to people that need oxygen at home. The pipes in his home burst and all his brand new furniture is ruined but he is not worrying about that now. He keeps running and running to help who he can. May Hashem bless him with good health.

My husband and I both had it last week and people in my community sent dinners for over a week (many of whom were total strangers) so so amazing

We live OOT and our rav ensured us that our local market was adequately supplied to handle the people that won't be going away for y"t. So my husband went to do a basic pesach shop, and called to tell me that there was no more matza meal--at all and no more expected. So I asked my brother in brooklyn and they called a store who still had and are currently going to the post office to mail us some--and they said don't worry about us paying them back!

Yesterday the orders in monsey at a local supermarket were too numerous for staff. Tens of volunteers went to the supermarket to pack orders for hours, then deliver them to the ill and immuno-compromised.

There's a new gemach, juicing ginger for people with the virus and for prevention. They deliver them ready in 1 oz. containers to anyone in need.
Btw, drinking ginger juice is a lifesaver. It gives you back your energy instantly.

1 oz. Ginger (blended well), mix with 1/2 cup water and 2 tsp. Honey- 3x a day. It's a tremendous immune booster!

In Lakewood- We got a check from a gvir no questions asked because our business lost a lot of money this year. Normally Pesach is our busiest season...

There are incredible stores here that did free delivery so we didn’t have leave our house. Clothing, paper goods, books, judaica, games for the kids.... I cried with joy every time I got a delivery.

The Pesach food box and pesach box are also such amazing initiatives!

I was moved by an ad in the FJJ offering volunteers for running errands for those who can’t. מי כעמך ישראל.

Our shul sent little bags full of toys and activities for the kids to do! Card games, coloring books, stickers. I can cry it's so amazing.

I have a chronic disease that is b"h under control - that didn't stop both my Family Dr and Hematologist (who has a 3 month waiting time for appointments!) to call me a number of times from their personal cellphones to find out how I am doing, to make sure I am staying indoors and to help me out with tips and advice re: blood tests and IV meds.
Not to make you all jealous, but there is NOTHING like Jewish doctors and living in Israel!
Thank you to these incredible and caring medical professionals - your care and concern move me to tears!
