Pay It Forward with Give Care Initiative

Using CARES Act Stimulus Money to Support Medical Personnel, Front Line Workers and the Unemployed

 

#Givecare is being used to promote the donation of CARES Act stimulus money to charities that impact those people out of work and the people on the front lines of the battle against coronavirus.

Charities to support include food banks, organizations buying PPE/supplies/food for medical workers, funds supporting restaurants and restaurant workers and a host of other organizations that are focused on helping those in need.

Join us in getting the word out to #givecare and our message of paying it forward.

With stimulus checks coming to most Americans, we are proud to promote the #givecare initiative.  For many, these stimulus checks will serve as a lifeline to make ends meet and put food on families’ tables during a time of need. For those with continued employment, who do not need the stimulus checks to keep their lights on and mortgages paid, we ask that you join us in donating to food banks and other charities that will support those out of work and also our first responders and medical personnel  dedicated to taking care of our communities.

Americans have a tenured history of supporting one another.  Multiple studies demonstrated during the recession of 2008, the ratio of Americans’ charitable donations to income remained consistent.  In September 2001, tip jars across the service industry were willfully replaced with collections for the first responders and victims. Recent data shows that around 20% of people with means plan to donate their stimulus checks. This is our tradition, and these are the values that make us a great nation.

This is an opportunity to redirect several billion dollars in stimulus checks to those most in need. Please join us in promoting #givecare and help make a difference.

CARES Act Stimulus Payments

How large will the payments be?  Most adults will get $1,200, although some would get less. For every qualifying child age 16 or under, the payment will be an additional $500.

How many payments will there be?  Just one. Future bills could order up additional payments, though.

How do I know if I will get the full amount? It depends on your income. Single adults with Social Security numbers who have an adjusted gross income of $75,000 or less will get the full amount. Married couples with no children earning $150,000 or less will receive a total of $2,400. And taxpayers filing as head of household would get the full payment if they earned $112,500 or less.

Above those income figures, the payment decreases until it stops altogether for single people earning $99,000 or married people who have no children and earn $198,000. According to the Senate Finance Committee, a family with two children will no longer be eligible for any payments if its income surpassed $218,000.
