Creativity is Key to Surviving Crisis
The novel coronavirus has altered life as we know it. First appearing in Wuhan, China, the virus has proven to be highly transmissible, quickly spreading throughout the rest of the world with devastating consequences.
In response, governments have launched emergency measures to try and contain the contagion, initiating travel restrictions, social distancing, the mandatory wearing of face masks, quarantines, and even lockdowns.
The virus has afflicted over a million people and killed tens of thousands, with the global death toll still rising. It’s also taking its toll on economies, leaving businesses around the world scrambling to mitigate the damage. Stock prices started crashing as soon as it became clear that the virus was spreading like wildfire, leaving investors fearing for the worst.
Whether you’re an employee or a business owner, everyone around the world is affected, including the voluntary sector or charity organizations.
One of the biggest effects that the coronavirus is having on charities is the ban on public gatherings or events. A lot of charity organizations rely on fundraising events such as dinners and marathons to raise money for their causes. With restrictions in place, charities will be forced to lessen their dependence on these events and find alternatives to raising funds.
Voluntary and non-profit organizations are crying for assistance from their governments as numerous individuals and families rely on these charities for support.
Getting Through the Crisis
It’s a difficult time for charity organizations everywhere. With fundraisers canceled or postponed, almost all of those that rely on the support of kind-hearted donors will be put in a difficult position. Aside from providing services to their beneficiaries who rely on them for support, these charity organizations need to cover the costs of their staffing and other services they provide. Some have accepted the fact that they are going to incur major losses financially and are already preparing for the worst.
Charities need the support of their donors and supporters to survive this crisis. Creativity is key. While using creativity may be difficult at first, it can help lessen the financial damage that charities are experiencing.
Some of them have started changing their marathon programs into virtual ones, only requiring participants to either have treadmills or small spaces where they can jog back and forth. As long as you can track your steps, you’re good to join these marathons.
Some of these charity organizations have also resorted to virtual meetings or video sessions, such as online quiz bees or games. The possibilities are endless and as long as the support is there, some charities are expected to weather out the storm.
