Sixdegrees.Org is providing a $50,000 matching grant for The #IFeedTheFront Fund that will kick off May 5th on Giving Tuesday. The most generous day of the year historically follows Thanksgiving, but the folks behind Giving Tuesday moved it up this year due to the unprecedented aid that is needed as a response to Covid-19. We are choosing to support the #IFeedTheFront Fund this year. Every dollar of your donation starting #GivingTuesdayNow will be matched by Sixdegrees and go to support local restaurants to help to keep them operating. These restaurants will be providing our frontline workers with meals to keep them nourished and supported as they continue to risk their own safety for ours.
Frontline Foods and Feed The Fight DC are two organizations doing incredible work in this area and are our chosen partners for the #IFeedTheFront Campaign. In just one week, Sixdegrees.Org has helped to provide over 1,000 meals to our frontliners. Each of you can be a part of increasing this tenfold by helping us to provide 10,000 meals this Giving Tuesday.
You can donate securely in one of several ways:

"The global day of action will rally people around the world to tap into the power of human connection and strengthen communities at the grassroots level. Communities are encouraged to take action on behalf of first responders, as well as the world’s other - often forgotten - frontline workers: the nonprofits and community organizations that feed, house, educate, and nurture neighbors impacted by the global pandemic. The social sector is in crisis at the very moment the world needs it most, and GivingTuesday stands ready to rally the world at this critical time."
