#Heroes4Health Unite: Be a COVID-19 Hero!

Join Tony Goldwyn, Dr. Julie Varughese and all of our Americares family. Be a Virtual Volunteer.

The vaccine rollout is underway, but it is not a magic bullet and will take time. Our best shot at containing the disease and preventing death is to continue to follow the 3 steps to safety.

We have created images, animations and posts that make it easy for anyone to be a social hero for health. Pick your posts and share the message with your family and friends on your favorite social media channels, send a text, or simply make a phone call. Three simple steps (wear a mask, keep your distance, wash your hands) can help save lives if we all take them.  Share the facts. We can do this – together.

 

 

1. Wear A Mask

#Heroes4Health and our neighbors need us to wear masks

Copy / Paste for any social:

Your mask protects others, their masks protect you. It’s easier than: installing your smoke detector, wearing a bike helmet, putting on sunscreen and easier than getting a toddler in a car seat, but just as important.
