Open Collective is returning its fees for COVID-19 Solidarity Collectives

Published on March 23, 2020 by Pia Mancini

Hi! The Open Collective team has decided to give back 100% of the platform fees to this collective. It is complicated for us to programmatically do this, so the fees will be returned as a donation once a week. This is the reason why you'...

About


In this time of crisis and uncertainy, many of us are looking for a way to make a difference. With the help and vision of Jesse Ziff Cool, we have started "Meals of Gratitude". We will provide amazing, special, delicious meals to some of our frontline healthcare providers and support staff, starting at Stanford hospital. Your donation can help.

Our providers are working so hard and being so brave, for all of us. Many of them are separating themselves from their families to protect them, but that increases their burden and stress. We want to show them how much we as a community support them. Jesse and her team will make very special, individualized meals for rotating group of these heroes. Your donation will help pay some of Jesse's staff to prepare, box and deliver the meals.

Several providers have shared with us that the idea of this effort brings them to tears, and makes them feel our support. Help us complete this triangle: community to workforce to providers.
