Youth Poverty Skolaz Response to Billionaires Disaster Krapitalism

Bonanza is Cansa, by Kimo Umu
 
Since early January of this year, the covid-19 virus has continued to surge through the country. Many who are impacted first are the people without homes struggling to make it to the next day.
 
In the United States today 78 percent of households are living paycheck to paycheck. 20 percent of these individuals have a net worth of zero and below. I suspect this includes the homeless, impoverished and immigrants.

Immune Tips for COVID-19 (and for cold and flu season in general)

I think it's safe to say that we've all been thinking more about public health and stopping the
spread of viruses over the last few weeks. The need for social distancing right now is high. This
help us to to protect each other (especially those who are elder, immune compromised, or have
other health conditions that make them more vulnerable) from rapid virus spread, and helps to
avoid overwhelming our health system.

Healing Sanitation, Cleaning Supplies, Tents & Sleeping Bags Needed for Radical Redistribution to Po & Houseless Folks

As most of you know, people are hoarding wipes and hand sanitizer, paper towels, clorox, gloves, large bottles of water with spigots ( to cut down on plastic water bottle consumption) and masks. Meanwhile many people including houseless people have no access to them.
 
If you have those, if you have access to them or if you can buy them for us, we would appreciate it. If people could drop off tents and sleeping bags too that would be much appreciated.
