Who is Showing Leadership in Response to the Coronavirus? #generositychallenge

Yesterday, we kicked off the Coronavirus #GenerosityChallenge, inviting companies and individuals to share ways in which they are combating fear and scarcity with generosity. We’ve already had some awesome nominations, but let’s just remember why generosity is so essential at times like this.

At our core, humans are fundamentally social. Whether you look at recorded history or archeological evidence, homo sapiens have always gained strength and advantage by forming groups, whether they be tribes, clans, or families. When crisis hits, members of the tribe look to each-other for strength. When members of the group behave in a self-interested way, they are alienated from the tribe. When members show leadership by putting the group over self, they earn loyalty for life. Here are some of my favorite examples so far of people and companies responding to this crisis with generosity:

Josh Steimle, author, speaker and entrepreneur is giving a free 60 Day LinkedIn Mastery Course to single, and homeschooling parents. You'll receive it by just commenting "I want it" on this LinkedIn post.

Jo Evershed, Founder and CEO of Cauldron Science and its experiment building software Gorilla (www.gorilla.sc) has offered their platform for free to the Psychological Science Accelerator to help their network of 700 researchers in labs in 70 countries research treatment for COVID-19. Details here.

J. Jordan Feierabend, who is a Mathematics Facilitator at Anne Frank Inspire Academy, and licensed mathematics teacher for ages 7-12 (but with undergrad coursework in math/science 4-8th, early childhood literacy, and special education) has offered to help assist any parents stressing over homeschooling. Learn more in his LinkedIn update here.

Vidangel, the streaming service that allows you to edit Netflix or other streaming services with objectionable content, is offering free access to their services for the millions of families stuck at home. Click here to take advantage of this free service.

Are you ready to take the #GenerosityChallenge? Have you seen a peer or company that has inspired you with their acts of generosity? Please nominate them on LinkedIn or Twitter by tagging me- Adrian Dayton (@adriandayton on Twitter) or by using the hashtag #GenerosityChallenge.
