AN URGENT EMBRACE
Essential support for a loving community
UPDATE: Since we have managed to reach so many members of our community who were in need, we will close applications to receive support at MIDNIGHT ON TUESDAY 30 MARCH.
2020 was a difficult year for many of us, and that is also the case for the Globe Aroma community. Many of the artists, art lovers and creatives in the Globe Aroma network face intense financial consequences of Covid-19 tearing through our society. Money-making activities were suspended, work opportunities missed and many people find themselves falling between the cracks of the social support structures.
The urgency of this situation forces Globe Aroma to step out of its artistic comfort zone and connect people in a solidary financial way. We want to connect receivers – people in need of financial support – with givers – people who have some money to spare – with each other. To do that, we are collaborating with SOS Relief to adapt their existing peer-to-peer solidarity tool for the Globe Aroma community. Thanks to this system, a giver who wants to donate to a member of the community, can do so directly to a receiver. Globe Aroma will pair them together. In other words: you do not support financially Globe Aroma as an organisation, but you support a person in need from our community. Globe Aroma is only creating the connection between these people, between the giver and receiver.
The Urgent Embrace platform is only available for a limited amount of time, so don’t hesitate. Click the button with your language to ask for help or to donate.
