This initiative was born in the United States of America, was created by Shelly Tygielski on March 14, 2020 to make supportive connections between individuals and families who were in condition to and wanted to provide help to the individuals and families in their community most affected by the situation derived from the COVID-19 pandemic.
With the hashtag #pandemicoflove, the idea is to spread and create a pandemic of love and human support in these difficult times instead of spreading fear and aggression. In a matter of days this initiative has spread throughout the United States and some countries in Europe.
From Spain, we have wanted to extend this initiative to Spanish-speaking countries and we have created this page to share information and facilitate access to requests and forms both to provide support and to request it.
You can make a difference. “Many of you are wondering what we can do to support and help others during this difficult time? Many of you, like us, are finding quarantine really hard, but are also aware how much worse this is for many other families in Buenos Aires. “
