SUPER STORY TIME
Recently, while thinking about ways to give back to their local communities, Margot Gordon and her younger sister created @SuperStoryTime. @SuperStoryTime is an Instagram based platform where Margot reads aloud children's stories with the purpose of giving parents with young children a break and an educational way to entertain their children. This project combines her love of reading, and her favorite activity in elementary school, storytime, with her sister's passion for social media. Margot and her sister would love to expand this page and have other readers, kids, parents, authors etc. participate. Their goal is to read stories in as many languages and by as many different people as possible! Let them know if you would like to read a story you have written and illustrated, or one of your personal favorites or contact us for more information!
Doorstep Donations is a Not-for-Profit organization that strives to support those in our community who are financially affected by the coronavirus. The service makes supporting your community easy and guarantees the safety of donors by maintaining social distancing. In order to donate, contributors contact Doorstep Donations through our website and fill out a short form which includes their address and date of pickup. On the designated day, the patron will leave their donation on their doorstep and await the arrival of a Doorstep Donations volunteer. The volunteer will come by and pick up the donations in full PPE, wipe down the donations with sanitizing wipes, and deliver them to a participating community partner for allocation. Every week, a few volunteers from Doorstep Donations will visit our community partners and organize the food and necessities into care packages for families in need. These care packages are designed to last seven days. So far, we have collected food, essentials (such as toothpaste and toilet paper), and PPE (such as protective masks and gloves) from over 80 donors. We have distributed care packages to multiple households (one of which had eight young children). Go visit their website!

Circle of FRIENDS
Melodies for Remedies Club
Circle of Friends is an initiative made up of high school students eager to make a change in the midst of the COVID-19 crisis. We meet for an hour at a time with the children of essential workers, medical workers, patients, teachers, or really anyone who has been affected by the virus and would like some help with their children (for free of course!). In these meetings, we do everything from playing games, to singing and dancing, to watching TV together, to discussing sports, to homework help, and so much more. In short, we do whatever the families we are working with would like us to do! Since we began operations in early April, we have worked with over 30 families from all over the country and done over 100 individual meetings with these families. To sign up for meetings, all one needs to do is fill out a short Google Form on our website, indicating their child’s name, the time(s) they would like to meet, and they child’s interests, so we can match them to a volunteer with similar interests. Our volunteers are incredibly flexible, and we are ready and willing to help anyone who can benefit from our program. Anyone who would like further information can visit our website or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org, and we would be more than happy to provide them with it.
The Melodies for Remedies Club was created during this COVID-19 pandemic to try to help people, like seniors and people and children in hospitals, to feel less lonely during this time. Since they are not able to see their family or their friends, this club brings a variety of remedial music to help them experience the same comfort and belonging as when they are with others. This club holds concerts that are online to senior homes around San Diego (due to the conditions we are in right now), but they will also be live in the future. Also, we provide a compilation of recordings of different people performing to seniors and senior homes that are unable to make it live. We try to make one concert a month for different senior homes. It is also another goal of ours to teach music to seniors and people who want to learn instruments like piano and violin because it's a great activity for passing time and enjoying life even during COVID-19.

The Toon Shop
The Toon Shop is a small nonprofit organization that works to support racial equality and justice in America. High schoolers Monica and Nina Petulla create and sell personalized cartoons to raise money for The Movement for Black Lives. This organization is made up of over 150 groups that coordinate their efforts to pursue legal and social equality for people of color. They also design and sell stickers that raise awareness for racial inequality. You can read their mission statement below:
“Equality and justice in America is long overdue. Everyday people are denied opportunities because of race, dehumanized because of race, shot because of race, killed because of race. Racial injustice is everyone’s responsibility; it’s our job to raise our voices against a system that favors fairer skin.
The toon shop was created to support this cause- not for a week, a month, a phase - but for as long as it takes to achieve true equality and justice. We hope that every dollar earned and donated by this shop will help supply The Movement For Black Lives with the means to create necessary change and pave the road for a better future.
BLACK LIVES STILL MATTER.
ENOUGH IS ENOUGH."
