We’re all in this together, and that’s whether we like it or not. Just about every country and major city in the world is grappling with the new reality of coronavirus, officially known as COVID-19. In the U.S. alone, the virus outbreak has already led to more than 200,000 confirmed cases and more than 5,000 related deaths. And then there’s the impact on healthcare facilities and workers and first responders where the systems in place seem to be bursting from the seems. Add in the grim economic fallout and sky-high unemployment rate, it may be hard to see light at the end of the tunnel.
However, with every hardship, even at this magnitude, comes relief. And it’s coming from us. Even while millions of Americans are facing health and financial uncertainty, we’re seeing the best of humanity shine bright in these times with individuals, especially in the healthcare industries, who put themselves in the line of fire to treat those infected and stop the spread of the virus. But, you don’t have to be a nurse or doctor to do your part.
Your shopping, too, can support the fight against COVID-19. Some companies, despite dealing with sharp declines in revenue, are stepping up to the plate and offering support in various ways. In many cases, proceeds from your purchases will then go to supporting people in need, first responders, healthcare facilities, nurses, doctors, and other medical staff. We’re all still going to need to buy things. Below are ways your purchases can support the fight against coronavirus, and in many cases, these companies and brands are extending a discount to shoppers, as well.
One of the leading percussion massage gun brands, Theragun, has partnered with Feeding America to donate funds to provide 100 meals to people who need them for each massage gun sold — and to encourage you to buy now, it’s discounted the best-in-class Theragun Liv, Theragun G3, and Theragun G3 Pro by up to $150, with financing available from as little as $17 per month.
