We are all looking towards a brighter future. TOGETHER, WE WILL MAKE A DIFFERENCE!
Our efforts help Food Banks protect their personnel by giving them the extra resources to purchase safety equipment, cleaning supplies, and food resources to stay running at maximum capacity.
Now that schools are closed, and people are out of work, there is an immediate need to help feed America. As our nation's food banks become inundated with people in need of help, their resources are running out.
There are millions of children who rely on schools for two of their meals and older adults on fixed incomes who need meals, let alone the already invisible population of homeless individuals in our society. WE NEED TO ACT NOW!
Support our challenge for social distancing and
First Responders during this COVID-19 Outbreak.
Through the purchase of every t-shirt, we will donate $2 to your nominated Foodbank or Feed America in your State. Our goal is to help as many places possible through generous donations for the purchase of much-needed safety supplies, food resources, and protective wear to keep facilities operational. We hope you support our project and partner with us to make a difference!
What is We The New Normal?
From small seeds come great yields. Show your SUPPORT and LOVE for those in need!
"We The New Normal" is precisely what it states, we are the new normal when dealing with issues that affect our community. Our resilience and passion for innovating, growing, and reaching for the stars, no matter the situation makes us resilient people. To do great things, we must come together, setting aside any issues of race, color, creed, religion, economics, disability, age, sex, or gender orientation.
Fear is not our anchor. Hope is our guide, and love is our sword as we learn to live in a new normal that we create. The heroes around the world who fight COVID-19 every day desire the ultimate praise for their sacrifices. They are the angels who are many times nameless, working to heal strangers they may never meet again. May God Bless your families and comfort the sick, elderly, orphan, widow, and/or, and lonely amongst us.
join the challenge and make a difference
STEP 1 - THE CHALLENGE
Take the #NEWNORMALCHALLENGE to help us share our message and drive the importance of social distancing. We ask that every person who purchases a t-shirt takes a picture and #NEWNORMAL on social media. The goal is to express the importance of social distancing to help curb this epidemic. It is our responsibility to stay safe and keep others around us safe through social distancing and healthy practices such as washing our hands, wearing masks in public, and using our armpits as a cover when sneezing.
STEP 2 - SHARING
Once you receive your state t-shirt, please take a photo in it and share it on social media using the hashtag #NEWNORMALCHALLENGE. We appreciate your support in helping us spread the word and our project to your social media network. Each friend, family, co-worker, etc. will socially impact this movement as we seek to help communities in need through small donations, which compounded can make a significant impact.
STEP 3 - JOIN THE TEAM
After you have joined the team and nominated your community Foodbank, we will reach out to them to make them aware of our fundraising efforts. It is our goal to support these facilities by sending t-shirt donations and sharing their immediate needs via social media. All other generous contributions can be sent directly to the Foodbank to Feed America in your State. All nominated Foodbanks will be listed on our Nominate page.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHY IS THIS FUNDRAISER UNIQUE?
This project is unique because it allows everyday people the ability to participate in a social fundraising challenge that promotes something so important that it saves lives. In doing this challenge, they can generate proceeds for a State or nominated community Foodbank. You can support your community while expressing on social media that you support the practice of social distancing.
IMPORTANCE OF NOMINATING A FOODBANK?
When a Foodbank is nominated, they will be added to our Nominate Page as a sponsored facility. We encourage the public, to donate directly if possible to Foodbank facilities. Our goal is to give a portion of all t-shirt sales to help with the needs of community Foodbanks. If you don’t indicate a specific Foodbank, your donation will be sent to the Feed America in your State.
WHEN ARE CONTRIBUTIONS MADE TO FOODBANKS?
Once donations reach $125 for a nominated Foodbank, we will send the donation out. Ideally, the more funds generated for a nominated Foodbank or State, the more resources there will be to help.
HOW DO YOU SELECT WHICH FOODBANKS TO HELP?
Resources generated by t-shirt sales will support every nominated Foodbank. The more donations received from an area where the Foodbank is nominated, the better. The challenge is yours to take, so share with your community and join the movement!
CAN I PURCHASE A T-SHIRT AND ADD A DONATION?
Yes, at any time, individuals can donate without purchasing a t-shirt directly to a nominated Foodbank. You can also help by donating directly to Feed America in your State. You can choose to be anonymous or provide a nickname, whatever works for you when sending a donation.
BESIDES PURCHASING A T-SHIRT, ARE THERE OTHER WAYS TO HELP?
We encourage all who take the #NEWNORMALCHALLENGE to spread the word throughout their church, work, school, college, military, and social network. This is the simplest way you can help push the movement. Your voice speaks louder when you show and share your support for causes that are close to your heart.
HOW DOES SHARING A PHOTO ON SOCIAL MEDIA HELP THE CAUSE?
We hope to flood social media with photos of people wearing our t-shirts while practicing social distancing. We hope that our message will let our First Responders and our communities know that we care about everyone’s safety. Every positive message to promote awareness reaches and teaches those who have an ear to hear that this is a critical time in our history that we must win!
WHY SHOULD WE JOIN THE TEAM?
Our goal is to provide a vehicle for people to participate in a crowdsourcing project for a great cause. We all win when we show that we care about our fellow neighbors and community during these times. What a great way to share that you are supporting the nationwide social distancing efforts to curb COVID-19.
IS THIS A MOVEMENT OR MOMENT?
We hope that we can continue to serve as a fundraising vehicle when our resources are needed. This project can be a fun distraction that highlights which States are actively supporting the movement of social distancing. We can not do this without your support, so we need you to get involved today!
