|BBS Members & Friends,
I spent the weekend with my Big Spoon going over our options for helping everyone through this unpreceden…STOP…ugh, I hate that word…I’m NOT going to use it…let’s try this again…
I spent the weekend with my Big Spoon going over our options for helping everyone through this sh*tty sh*t sh*w (I guess I didn’t really need the * in “show”, but whatever). We started by writing out every option we had…then we marked off those not currently allowed by the Emergency Orders and those not safe for people at higher risk.
Then we considered the source of the options that remained. They had to either come from our belief that this is temporary and we have faith in our community to get through this…or, they came from a fear of the unknown. So, we marked the options that came from a Fear of the Unknown with a big fat “F.U.” And here’s what remained:
BBS will continue to pay our entire staff.
BBS will continue to help our Members (and others) with their Essential Needs.
BBS will pause the recurring Membership of anyone that needs to make that request (and we will continue to help you).
BBS will purchase and deliver ANY essential items that our Members (or friends) need, but can’t afford.
BBS will survive this…and we will help all of you survive this.
Please Note: Our rule is still in force through this State of Emergency…no discussion of Politics or Religion. We’re putting our energy into helping our local community…because THAT IS WHAT WE CAN DO RIGHT NOW. We will be focusing on things that bring us together, not things that tend to divide us.
We’ve started another list of things people may need…and we’ve placed them in categories (please give us suggestions for things we may have missed). The concept is simple…people that feel safe going out will get these for people who don’t feel safe going out. There are currently 4 main categories…the first is Essential Physical things and the second is Entertaining Physical Things that may not be essential, but they could be obtained while picking up the essentials. The third category is Things You Can Do…some are for you, some are for others, and some are for both. The fourth category is Emotional Things that you may need (and we can all help one another with these).
*Special note regarding Emotional Things: Some of you are already proficient with taking pics and videos to share with others…but, many are not. We’re purchasing 5 simple cameras to rotate through those of you who are not proficient (one button takes a picture and the other button takes a video…easy-peasy lemon-squeezy). We’ll be uploading shared pics and vids to the BBS site for those that want to share. Some video topics may be “Personal Victory” or “Message to My Younger Self”…maybe “Perspective Check-up” or “The Struggle is Real” or “Quarantine Hacks”…and, of course “AFGO”.
Participation is open to BBS Staff, Members, and Guests.
You want to participate, but feel it’s best if you stay in your home.
We will Deliver any materials/resources you may need, and then collect anything that needs to be delivered to the next person.
You want to participate, and you feel as though you can safely leave your home while following current restrictions and guidance.
You’re willing to Deliver any materials/resources that anyone may need, and then collect anything that needs to be delivered to the next person.
The initial list is on the BBS Site, look for the page titled BBS Delivery & BBS Take-out…and, here’s the message from my girl Gloria….click it, I dare you….
>>>I Will SURVIVE<<<
Yours in Health,
