If You Give, We Will Match – It’s Time to Step Up
Needless to say, the coronavirus crisis is profoundly reshaping life here in America. We are sending you this edition of Trending Today with a deep sense of concern and responsibility, understanding the challenges and complications that this unprecedented health epidemic has created for virtually all of us. While we are 100% confident the situation we are all part of is a temporary one, it also remains very serious and open-ended.
If you are an essential worker, or on the front lines of this battle helping our daily lives to be as normal and as safe as they can be, we offer a huge dose of appreciation and a sincere thank you.
If you are sheltering-in-place by yourself or with family, we hope you are coping, making due, and working to make lemonade out of these temporary lemons. At Towerpoint Wealth, we fully understand that being physically separated from family we love and friends we cherish is both trying and difficult. We share those same feelings here at the firm, as the TPW family misses each other as well. While our daily Zoom video conferences have been productive and useful, it is near impossible to replicate the satisfaction and enjoyment we all get, and sincere connection we all feel, from spending physical time with each other at our downtown headquarters.
Understanding these unique circumstances we are all now a part of, we have drawn inspiration in many ways and from many sources. And regardless of your faith, we felt Pope Francis’ words, delivered just yesterday to an eerily empty St. Peter’s Square at the Vatican, ring perfectly true:
We have realized that we are on the same boat, all of us fragile and disoriented, but at the same time important and needed, all of us called to row together, each of us in need of comforting the other… We have realized that we cannot go on thinking of ourselves, but only together we can do this.
Fortunately, tough times do not last, but tough people do. And in that spirit, Towerpoint Wealth is committed to directly helping those in need during this pandemic, and we are pleased to offer a 100% match, up to a total of $50,000, of any COVID-19-related charitable donation made by you!
