25Beats19 started this petition to All Americans Who Kept Their Jobs And Incomes During Covid-19

                                                  25 Beats 19


Are you one of the lucky ones, like I am?  Have you kept your job and your paycheck while so many of our fellow Americans lost their incomes to Covid-19 or saw the small businesses they spent years nurturing suffer tremendously?  For the nation to truly heal, it’s on the shoulders of us, the lucky, to make that happen.  Please remember, if you maintained your income during the lock-down, and your health because of it, your safety has been paid for with the economic sacrifices of others. Now is the time to help them. Join the 25 Beats 19 Initiative by making these three pledges:

     1.  Spend 25

For the rest of 2020, please commit to spend at least an EXTRA $25 per week (or per month if that better fits your budget) shopping or dining at a locally owned small business.  Choose something that in the past you might have bought online or skipped entirely.  Pick up a book at an independent bookstore.  Bring home some extra flowers or a houseplant from your local florist.  Buy breakfast at your local cafe or diner.  Find just one or two birthday or Christmas gifts on Main Street, instead of online. Maybe make every Saturday a Small Business Saturday!

     2.  Tip 25

Nobody has been hit harder than people who work for tips.   Show them you know and care.  For the rest of 2020, tip 25%.  We, the lucky, can afford it, and they need it. 

     3.  Give 25

Look at your 2019 tax return.  Whatever you gave to charity, please commit to give 25% more in 2020.  A lot more people are going to need a lot more help, and the reality is that no matter how big the government rescue efforts are, it is private giving that holds the key.  Those who have been hurt economically won’t be able to give as much, so the rest of us need to give more.  Pick your favorite organization that serves the needy and up your gift!

Please Make The 25 Beats 19 Pledge Today by signing this petition AND SHARING IT.  Together, we hold the key to healing America.  

Spread the word!  And, each time you spend some $ to meet your pledge, think about a quick Instagram or Facebook post, using #25Beats19 Join our Facebook Group: Facebook.com/groups/25Beats19

Thank You!
