EVENT DETAILS

IMPACT

We're supporting first responders with packs of gratitude

About the cause: First responders and frontline healthcare workers across the country have had to step up, wear the mask all day, every day, and be the real heroes. Our job is to support them and meaningfully connect to let them know our appreciation!

About the event: We ship the entire volunteer experience to your home along with educational materials, packaging, prepaid shipping labels, and supplies. We then join a live event together to learn about the response and create meaningful supply packs for those that are showing up and protecting all of us.

Join us for this virtual event as we make sure the courage of health workers on the front lines is honored with meaningful support and connect over a fun activity at home. Let’s support the heroes!

Individuals provide $20 in aid every 8 days on average just by surfing the web.

Raise relief support with every browser tab you open in Chrome, Firefox, or Microsoft Edge!

The WeHero extension transforms your “new tab” page. Each time you open a tab, you will be greeted with a new image, the amount raised, and a couple of banner ads. We collect ad revenue from the page and use it to donate to the causes you are supporting!

The best part, you see the actual amount of relief you provided!

CARE FOR OUR PLANET

Be a Waste Warrior

We build our volunteer events to be as environmentally friendly as possible. Whether it is offsetting the carbon emissions of the shipping process, using recycled cardboard for the boxes, or relying on algae-based dyes, we’ve made conscious steps to ensure we’re doing right for our world.

However, it’s impossible for us to completely eliminate waste products from the experience. To ensure we limit the impact of these materials, we ask that all participants properly recycle and dispose of the materials they receive.

Recycling is hard so we made this resource list to make it easier!
