COVID-19 Response

Like everyone else, we urge you to wash your hands and engage in social distancing.

Unlike everyone else, we urge you to also help with this smart plan to get more tests, ventilators, and PPE. Everyone can do that plan right now, at home, in just 15 minutes.

If enough people help with the plan we can save lives. Take time out now and help get more desperately-needed supplies.

.@jesswade: FYI, @jimmy_wales freely admitted he used #Wikipedia rules to deceive their readers. Now, imagine what Putin & other leaders - who can afford to hire moles to use those same rules in the same way - are doing. http://24ahead.com/n/9281

.@jwsal @Jonathanjk: FYI, @jimmy_wales put his finger on the #wikipedia scale, using their rules to deliberately lie to their readers. It was for a good cause, but he still used their rules to lie to their readers. What other good causes are there? http://24ahead.com/n/9281
