A simple, yet effective way of supporting Austin during COVID 19!
It is estimated that the Internet and live streaming services are surging due to the large number of people now working from home or currently unemployed. Over 70 percent of an increase in online usage to be exact reports Verizon; however, if Austinites are finding themselves struggling between ordering take out and shopping local, pick one!
It is imperative to understand that supporting local businesses one at a time is perfectly fine. For those who frequent coffee shops, boutiques, grocery stores and etc. purchase a gift card for family and friends for their birthdays during quarantine and for extra money to spend once this is all over!
Support the arts
One thing that has become extremely apparent during this time is that those who were once deemed “non-essential” due to their careers and the arts are critical for everyone. Austin has one of the best music scenes in the nation, next to Nashville, now is the time to donate to a local band, bar and even museum.
Be kind to one another
Every single person is adjusting to a new normal in their lives whether it is being alone during quarantine or essential workers living in hotels to protect their loved ones, this is not easy on anyone. It is important to always lend a helping hand when you are able to and understand that being kind is what we should all be doing first and foremost.
