Connecting with our Global Community - Jack to Play #TogetherAtHome Concert in Support of World Health Organization
As a goodwill ambassador for the UN Environment Programme, Jack is joining in solidarity with the World Health Organization (WHO), in the global effort to tackle COVID-19. This Saturday, March 28 at noon Hawaii time (3pm PST, 6pm EST), Jack will play a #TogetherAtHome living room concert in collaboration with Global Citizen and in support of the World Health Organization.

Together At Home is a virtual concert series to help us all practice social distancing and promote global health.
We are learning more every day...and by turning anxiety into action, we can slow this virus down and do our part to flatten the curve. We can protect ourselves and others by changing our behavior, asking governments to act, and donating. We need to stand together to keep our loved ones safe.

Ways to Help
- Donate to the #COVID19 Solidarity Response Fund to support the WHO-led response, including protective gear for health workers and work to fast-track a vaccine.
- Volunteer or support your local food bank or make a donation to Feeding America, working to distribute emergency food boxes as businesses and school districts close.
- Make a donation to the GlobalGiving Coronavirus Relief Fund to provide communities with the resources they need, including medical equipment and care.
- Help teachers get key resources to students at home with the DonorsChoose.org Keep Kids Learning fund.
- Sign-up for a farm box delivery or CSA to support local farmers, and learn how to support sustainable local food systems and reduce your food waste.
Creative Ideas for Self Care and Community Connection
While we practice social distancing, it’s important to focus on self care and find other ways to connect with community. Stay hydrated and well-rested, and check in on your neighbors, especially the elderly or medically vulnerable and friends living alone (from 6 feet away). Get exercise and fresh air, and try a creative project.
