(Updated on March 26, 2020) No matter who we are or what we can do, we all have something to contribute in our ongoing battle against the COVID-19 pandemic. That’s right—we don’t all have to be on the frontlines just to beat this global health threat into submission.

Aside from observing proper hygiene, sharing only verified health advice, and debunking misinformation, we can also support our health workers and scientists, or help alleviate the suffering of those whose lives have been severely affected by the ongoing lockdown.

Here’s a list of fundraisers and donation drives you can support, organized by beneficiary/sector:
