Always Remember Community
There is certainly nothing normal about this so-called ‘new normal’ our entire world is facing right now. All our lives have been turned upside-down by the COVID-19 pandemic. For our health and medical professionals on the front lines, upside-down is an understatement. Each and every one of them is putting their own safety on the line, spending long hours away from their family to get us all through this.
A Time for Community
Amidst the fear and devastation brought about by the growing number of coronavirus cases, one positive thing has come about amongst communities across the globe: the calling for the humanitarian spirit in each and every one of us to spread kindness, compassion, and generosity. We have all been reminded that we are stronger as a community than we are apart. Now more than ever is the perfect time to take on the challenge of coming together by staying apart.
Still, it is difficult to feel like you are contributing just by staying home, while nurses, doctors, and other essential workers weather this storm for us. We cannot imagine how the exhausting hours, excessive hand-washing, and continuous mask-wearing must be taking a toll on our heroes on the front lines of this pandemic. Our hearts and gratitude go out to them. When this is all over, we will all owe them an unpayable debt.
Small Acts of Kindness
To do our small part to ease their burden, the Root Wellness team has been working to put together care packages to send out to hospitals and nursing homes nationwide. We’ve included in each care package our Root Wellness CBD balms, lotions, hand-sewn masks, healthy snacks, and notes of encouragement to let them know just how much we appreciate their sacrifice.
They say small acts, when multiplied by millions of people, can transform the world. Each kind deed sends out ripples that spread much-needed hope and solidarity in these difficult times. We hope that by adding our efforts to the efforts of millions of others across the country and around the globe, we can be a small part of our world coming together and healing.
