Letter for Ga. Bio to send out stating they are supporting GHC3 for #GivingTuesdayNow

Good morning,

We’re writing to show our support of the new Global Health Crisis Coordination Center (GHC3) during the #GivingTuesdayNow campaign. The Giving Tuesday campaign that many of you are familiar with began in 2012 and occurs immediately following Thanksgiving. What started as a day that encourages people to do good has grown into a global movement of inspiring millions to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity.

As an emergency response to COVID-19, the Giving Tuesday global movement has grown again! At a time when we are all experiencing the pandemic, generosity is what brings people of all races, faiths, and political views together across the globe.

This new day of global giving and unity will take place Tuesday (May 5, 2020), and we are proud to stand behind the new Global Health Crisis Coordination Center as they provide much-needed resources to those who need it most. In a short time, they’ve helped to source valuable PPE and respiratory equipment, coordinate the logistics of delivering lifesaving devices, and spent countless hours collaborating between private and public sector partners to augment the global response to COVID-19.

We invite you to join us in our support of GHC3 by donating to the global response efforts at https://www.gagives.org/organization/Ghc3, visiting the GHC3 website at globalhealthc3.org, liking their Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/globalhealthc3, or following @globalhealthc3 and #GHC3 on Twitter.

Letter for our team to send to Board members for them to distribute

Dear [Board Members],

Please see below for a message that we’d like you distribute to your colleagues and contacts in support of an upcoming fundraising effort — the #GivingTuesdayNow campaign. It’s a new global day of giving designed to unite communities around COVID-19 response efforts.

We appreciate your support.

Good morning,

I’m writing to ask you to join me in supporting the new Global Health Crisis Coordination Center (GHC3) during the #GivingTuesdayNow campaign on May 5th.

At a time when we are all experiencing the pandemic, generosity is what brings people of all races, faiths, and political views together across the globe — and gives everyone the power to make positive change in the lives of others.

GHC3 is a nonprofit organization that’s been tasked by the CDC Foundation to augment the global response to COVID-19 by helping public health agencies solve high-priority challenges. Harnessing the power of technology, data, and logistics, GHC3 accomplishes their mission by connecting private sector resources and solutions to needs identified by public sector agencies.

After receiving $1 million in founding grants from CDC Foundation and Microsoft, GHC3 launched just six weeks ago. Since then, they’ve built a leadership team of the greatest minds in healthcare, technology, and innovation and made great strides in the fight against COVID-19. These accomplishments include:

  • Sourced and vetted hundreds of ICU ventilators for FEMA response efforts
  • Garnered support from influencers like Steve Harvey and Coaches Kirby Smart, Nick Saban, and Brian Kelly in efforts to amplify GHC3 messaging
  • Established communications channels with regional hospitals to better understand response challenges
  • Connected Dell Technologies and its software partner with major metro health systems to implement an application for improved patient tracking, symptom monitoring and transfer of vital health information
  • Collaborated with state recovery teams and corporate partners (like LabCorp and Quest Diagnostics) to review testing and distribution methods
  • Leveraged corporate partners to work with CDC in developing safety protocols and re-opening guidelines

If they can build such a first-class team and collaborate across multiple sectors in sucha  short time, I’m confident they’re the new pioneers of global crisis response. I hope you’ll join me in donating to the global response efforts at https://www.gagives.org/organization/Ghc3, visiting the GHC3 website at globalhealthc3.org, liking their Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/globalhealthc3, or following @globalhealthc3 and #GHC3 on Twitter.
