If you have a social media account, read articles online or watch morning news, chances are you have come across the #IStayHomeFor Campaign launched by Actor and Philanthropist, Kevin Bacon. The campaign was created in order to encourage more people to stay socially distant by staying home during this global crisis. It has quickly gained momentum and has spread to more than 50 countries around the world.
Recognizing not everyone is able to stay at home, Bacon is encouraging those that can stay home to do so. Everywhere you look, you
can see people sharing the many reasons why they are choosing to stay home and stay safe.
Many people have shared that they are staying home to help our healthcare workers and those on the front lines, understanding that many people can be carriers and spread this virus, making it more difficult for our healthcare facilities and available resources. Elton John, David Beckham, Millie Bobby Brown and Mariah Carey are just a few of the celebrities that have leveraged their immense platforms to spread this important campaign.
