I don’t know about you but I’ve officially lost count of the days! Today is Friday but what is a weekend when you can’t do anything fun?! I’m trying not to worry about the plight of our world, but instead, focus on things I can control. I hope you are able to do the same.
Want to donate plasma?
The Red Cross is looking for plasma donors with a confirmed COVID-19 diagnosis as well as those who don’t but think they were infected. If you are one of the few who received a positive COVID-19 test result, please consider donating blood to help those coronavirus patients with life-threatening symptoms. As always, your blood could save a life! And, if you are pretty sure you had COVID-19 but weren’t able to get tested, the Red Cross still wants to hear from you. Once they have an antibody test in place, you’ll already be on their donor list.
Prepare to be gaslit
The world as we know it suddenly stopped last month! It just stopped… and if we’re not paying attention, we will revert to our usual ways as COVID-19 recedes. We will be marketed to as we have never before experienced. Rather than jumping back into our normal, comfortable routines, take a pause and consider how this reset can allow you to change your behaviors. Break old habits. Don’t forget what is most important to you, today, while we all sit and wait for the curve to flatten. https://forge.medium.com/prepare-for-the-ultimate-gaslighting-6a8ce3f0a0e0
Please don’t go shopping for just one or two items!
Going shopping? Make a list, get in, shop quickly and get out! Possible COVID-19 exposure increases the longer you are in an environment that could be infected. Don’t forget that each time you enter a store, you are not only endangering yourself but also other shoppers and store employees. It’s not OK to enter the grocery store just because you want a banana or a can of beer!
Your wine purchase helps feed Oregonians
Battle Creek Cellars is donating $1 for every bottle purchased to the Oregon Food Bank. We couldn’t be more proud of them and their efforts! If you are able, please consider buying their wines! You can feel good with every sip. If you live in Portland, they offer curbside pickup and local delivery. And if you don’t, you can order from their online store.
