Jet Linx Fundraising Helps Tutu Project Address COVID-19 Health Crisis
Record-breaking Fundraiser, Right in Time
When Jet Linx raised upwards of $92,000 for The Tutu Project in October 2019, the financial aid could not have come at better time. Unbenknownst to all, the COVID-19 pandemic would strain resources and impact employment across the globe, bringing additional stress and worry to immunocompromised populations – like those facing cancer.
The pandemic poses new problems for those battling cancer. On top of the extensive health concerns that come with a cancer diagnosis – and being at a higher risk for infection – breast cancer patients are subject to the same financial woes brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic. This is not to mention the mental health concerns compounded by unfortunate but necessary isolation. The need for support right now is more critical than ever, and thankfully, funds raised by Jet Linx are making an impact.
“It is difficult to put into words exactly what the loyal and unwavering support if Jet Linx has meant during these challenging times,” said Bob and Linda Carey, co-founders of The Tutu Project. “So many non-profits have not been able to deliver on their promise because of financial restraints. Your support has allowed us to execute on ours.”
