On Thursday, April 29th, Moxie will host a fundraiser for COVID-19 relief in India. We need your help!
Right now, India is going through the most devastating moments in this pandemic so far. On April 22nd, India recorded the world’s highest daily tally of 314,835 COVID-19 infections. The second wave sent an alarming number of people into a fragile health care system, critically short of hospital beds and oxygen.
With more than half of our Moxie team who call India home, Moxie will use its voice, resources, and technology to aid in relief efforts and provide essential medical supplies, food, and emergency assistance to those in need.
Moxie and it's founders have pledged $20,000 towards ventilators and medical equipment needed to support India during this crisis.
In that very spirit, we're hoping you'll join our Moxie family in supporting key organizations on the front lines of the COVID-19 crisis.
Here's how you can participate:
- Schedule flex pay classes to be taught on April 29th.
- Include the hashtag #MoveforIndia in your class title.
- Create your classes by Wednesday, April 28th, 12 p.m. ET to have your classes featured on the homepage of Moxie. Additionally, we'll provide you with social media assets and a branded profile photo you can use to raise awareness.
- Please select one of the organizations below and mention them in the description of your class.
- Donate 100% of your proceeds from the classes you teach on this day to one of the organizations listed below using the provided links.
