Thank you for joining us in the #BlinkYourLight campaign to show gratitude for healthcare workers
We want to thank all the individuals and organizations in our region for joining us in the #BlinkYourLight campaign. We started the campaign in the beginning of April, shortly after Governor Baker declared a state of emergency. We asked everyone is our region to join us and blink a light in their homes, or a light that could be seen by others outside, every night at 8pm for one minute as a visual demonstration of our collective gratitude for healthcare workers, tirelessly taking care of those in the most need in our region during the COVID-19 pandemic.
As the days are longer we are phasing out the #BlinkYourLight campaign, but please be sure to take action in other ways to thank our healthcare workers as the risk to them is still very real.
Thank you to the many individuals and organizations that signed on to the campaign. Participating partners included the Food Bank of Western MA, TapestryHealth, Human Service Forum, RainMaker Consulting, Behavioral Health Network, Center for Human Development, Leadership Pioneer Valley, Pioneer Valley Planning Commission, Mental Health Association.
