Our world as we know it vastly changed when COVID-19 hit our community. Beyond businesses shutting their doors and us all socially distancing from one another, there have been many tragically effected by the virus. Our team here at Purple Urchin sends our love and prayers to those who have lost loved ones.
This virus has taken storm across the entire world. And as much as we're all looking forward to getting back to normal, our future world is going to look very different. Many of us, although inconvenienced from seeing friends and family members, have been lucky to stay safe and be able to continue working from home. For some, jobs have been lost and have been able to receive short-term compensation from the government to stay afloat. And several of us we've had to push forward, full steam ahead, adapting on a dime to these uncertain new processes and practices in our jobs.
We want to pay-it-forward to those making a positive impact through COVID-19. Whether you're a unemployed, a nurse, a truck driver, working retail for essential services business, or out there volunteering your time, we want to give back to thank you. All of us out there, are trying our best to adapt with these new circumstances. And we want to give you a little self care gift box.
This month we launched our Pay-It-Forward Frontline Workers contest in partnership with Little Jo Berry's. On both our Instagram account and Facebook page, followers can tag a friend, family member, coworker or acquaintance to submit them to win! The winner will be announced on Friday, May 29, 2020 and will win one (1) $50 Gift Card to Purple Urchin and one (1) $25 Gift Card to Little Jo Berry's.
