Other Resources: 

The Cincinnati Zoo will be doing a Home Safari every weekday at 3pm EST via Facebook Live

Mo Willems is doodling with kids (with lots of behind the scenes looks!) every weekday at 1pm EST. (It is really super fun, even for adults!)

Check your local school system's website.  Ours is offering free breakfasts and lunches while the schools are closed.

Check with your utilities companies.  I've seen that many will not be disconnecting any services because of non-payment while there is a national emergency.


What you can do to help:

During this National Emergency, there are many things we can do to help those around us!

Check in on your elderly neighbors and friends.

Send gift cards to those who will financially struggle being off work.

Buy gift cards from restaurants and small businesses.

Send a card to someone in a nursing home or in the hospital.

Continue to shop small either online or by buying gift cards.

If you're a teacher or homeschooling parent, you can offer help to other parents while the schools are closed.

Stay home.  You may not be in the immune-compromised category, but you can still be a carrier of the virus.  You can help stop the spread by staying home.  Staying home is an act of mercy, charity, and sacrifice, and those of us in the immune-compromised category (like me) thank you.

What else can you do to help?  Nothing is too small!



I will update this list as new resources become available!  Please email me at sweetlittleonesblog@gmail.com if you know or provide other free resources during the virus outbreak.

God bless,
