The goal of the Protect The Heroes campaign is to encourage individuals to donate directly to the local hospital of their choice in support of efforts to fight COVID-19.
A joint initiative by the Association for Healthcare Philanthropy (AHP), The Creative Coalition (TCC), and the American Hospital Association (AHA), Protect The Heroes will use a national website and social campaign, powered by viral sharing from the celebrity community and others, to spread the word about the needs for donations to fight COVID-19 on the front lines.
This initiative provides a complementary effort to the 100 Million Mask Challenge by providing a way for people to donate financial resources directly to local providers to support their efforts to address this pandemic.
We encourage you to share the sample materials below (adapted as needed) to promote this campaign to your networks.
www.protecttheheroes.org makes the call for action, enabling Americans to look up a hospital/health system or city or state, in order to be directly connected to that organization’s emergency relief funds.
This website is powered by the Association for Healthcare Philanthropy, an international professional organization dedicated exclusively to development professionals who encourage charity in North America’s healthcare organizations.
Amplifying the effort are the AHA and The Creative Coalition (TCC). The AHA will share information and links to the site via its digital channels, including those of 100 Million Mask Challenge. Messages about the campaign also will be shared via various media interview opportunities.
The Creative Coalition will activate its celebrity network to further spread these messages. TCC is a social and public advocacy organization of the arts and entertainment community. Actor Tim Daly serves as the organization’s President. The Creative Coalition harnesses the unique platforms of the arts community and entertainment industry to make positive impacts on social welfare issues.
