This event was a success!
Customers of the store and new friends too joined us for an evening of online shopping and sipping as we all came together to show our support for nurses and the heroic work they continue to do on the frontlines of the Coronavirus.
15% of all online purchases were donated to the Coronavirus Response Fund for Nurses, administered by the American Nurses Foundation (see note below about discounts and returns)
A special Zoom video conference was hosted by Mellow Monkey Owner, Howard Aspinwall - who will be available at the store to answer any questions on products and to give each attendee a chance to spin the Mellow Monkey prize wheel.
What was this for?
Nurses are on the frontlines of the COVID-19 response. The American Nurses Foundation has created this Coronavirus Response Fund for Nurses to enable the public to support and thank nurses. The national fund will address the identified, emerging needs of nurses and will focus on:
Providing direct financial assistance to nurses (RNS SEE ELIGIBILITY HERE)
Supporting the mental health of nurses – today and in the future
Ensuring nurses everywhere have access to the latest science-based information to protect themselves, prevent infection, and care for those in need
Driving the national advocacy focused on nurses and patients
This national effort is being kicked off with a $1.5 million grant from Johnson & Johnson and the TYLENOL brand.
