    Click here to subscribe to receive CORD USA news!

    Dear Friends!

    A lot has happened and changed in the world over the past months since #COVID19 #pandemic erupted. #CoronaVirus shows how vulnerable we remain. This #pandemic has had far-reaching consequences beyond the spread of the disease itself and efforts to quarantine it. As the health and human toll grows, the economic damage is already evident and represents the largest economic shock the world has experienced in decades.

    Stunning, staggering, mind-numbing, call it what you will, the COVID-19 pandemic’s crushing impact on the job market is inescapable.

    Job losses due to business closures peaked at 23 million last May, according to the Georgetown center on Education and the workforce statistics. #ChinmayaMission centers around USA, joining hands with #CORDUSA, have raised awareness and funds and so far we have raised close to 300,000 for helping those who are affected by the pandemic.

    If you are interested in contributing to this cause, please click this link and donate securely.

    Here you can check the impact our giving is having on the broader community at any given time. Please reach out to see if I missed anything and I certainly will add. Please click on the link or image to read more.

    Hello! This is Simone from CouponBirds Seedling Project, and I’m writing to invite your organization to join The Seedling Project and receive donations. This Project is to encourage millions of online shoppers from the CouponBirds community to earn cash and donate part of their earnings to charity organizations. In recent years, due to the impact of the epidemic, we have found that some have stopped donating to NPO organizations like Giving Assistant. CouponBirds has been insisting on doing this great cause for 3 years, and we’ll keep doing that. Now, more than one hundred nonprofit organizations are currently working with us and have received hundreds of dollars in donations since they joined. Some nonprofit organizations: Children's Innovation Center, Kids Saving the Rainforest and Jacknife-zion-horse heaven Historical Society, etc. The entire application process of the seedling Project is very simple. The earlier you join the project, the more donations you can get. If your organization is interested in it, please email us at charity@couponbirds.com and follow the instructions to apply. Our team will review your application within 1 working day and notify you of the result by email. Have a good day!

    The #COVID19 Pandemic in the US #BoundToEachOther #CORDUSA

    Click here to subscribe to receive CORD USA news!

    Dear friends!

    COVID-19 pandemic and its devastating impact has taken a terrible toll globally. It is particularly sad that our country has not been spared either; despite its economic might.    As of this month, US COVID-19 related unemployment claims hit a staggering 26.4 million, the five-week total has now surpassed all of the job gains since the Great Recession.

    Over 10 million Americans applied for unemployment benefits in March – The latest official figures highlight the devastating economic impact of this pandemic on the American economy, with the numbers growing every day. All 50 states reported a rise in unemployment, with widespread layoffs reported in almost all sectors of the economy.

    While all of us feel the impact of the novel coronavirus, the burden falls most heavily on those who have been marginalized in our society. Homeless people, those on the poverty line, individuals without health insurance are all feeling the pinch most of all – as many struggle to get even a single meal for the day.

    Many students around the country rely on schools to provide free or low-cost meals. Many of the children in these families have no other way to get their meals for the day. With most schools around the nation closed until further notice, many of these families are struggling to get additional basic necessities met.

    With all this suffering around us, we must ask ourselves: How can we step up to help meet their needs? Contact us to know more…

    Please note that with CORD USA, 100% of your donations and corporate matching goes directly to those in need independent of their race, color, immigration status, age, sex, religion or disability. Let us rise to the occasion and make a difference during these extraordinary times!

    Information regarding #CORDUSAServiceVisit2020 #Highschool #Summer2020

    Greetings from our beautiful Portland!

    Hope you all had a chance to see the video made by our recent service visit participants.  We have been receiving emails and voicemails asking about the Summer service visit opportunities in 2020. I want to update all of you regarding this.

    Because of the current travel adversaries and unknown health risks, we have decided not to conduct a Summer service visit this year.  Please sign up to receive our updates directly using the link – http://bit.ly/cordusa_news

    In the meantime, please do let me know if you are interested in participating in local service activities.

    Our CORDUSA ambassadors have continued their Seva with multiple programs like tutoring ESL students, doing homeless shelter services, cleaning up streets, coordinating camps and many other activities in their local areas.

    Have a safe and productive 2020!

    Thank you!
