How Thrive Market Members are Helping Healthcare HeroesApril 27th, 2020
Thanks to the generosity of our members, brand partners, and brand ambassadors, we’ve raised more than $450,000 and donated 500+ free memberships to healthcare workers and first responders since March 15. Read on to hear how your membership and donations are personally helping our frontline heroes.
“I want to extend my thanks for your help in supplying health food to “healthcare” families during what is possibly one of the most stressful and frightening times in our careers. I work in a COVID-19 testing facility where the potential of being exposed is daily stress. I’m also the sole surviving parent to a 7 year-old boy who is now schooling from home. We try to eat healthy most of the time, but have slipped in the past four to six weeks, and both my son and I are paying for it. I feel significantly more sluggish throughout the day and his concentration is just about nonexistent at this point.
We received our first box yesterday and, as silly as this seems, for the first time in a month and a half, I felt motivated to get back to our normal eating habits. I can now order foods from home that I normally would have to go out of my way to obtain. We do not live near a big city and our organic selection, although improving, is sparse. Normally I have to spend a significant amount of time online, at various stores, searching for what we need. Right now, that’s just not feasible. Your company carries everything we eat along with new things that I cannot wait to try.
Again, I just want to say thank you. Thank you so very much. You have made a significant impact on my small family and I’m sure families of others in healthcare as well. You guys rock!!”
“I’m absolutely amazed not only by the wonderful relief I was able to receive, but also by the efficiency of the delivery. I had assumed it would take weeks, given demand, and had prepared for this eventuality. However, I was so surprised to have received a beautifully packed (by Isabel) box yesterday, and the kids were absolutely delighted to unpack it! (We are easily entertained these days—anything to avoid math worksheets!) Anyway, from our family to yours, thank you all!”
“Thank you SO much, you don’t know how appreciated this is! When all of this is over and everyone is back on their feet, I’ll be sure to pay this forward for someone else in need.”
“Thank you so very, very much. I cannot tell you how grateful I am. Your company’s kindness has just eliminated a huge worry during an incredibly stressful time when almost everything is uncertain. I’d never heard of your company prior to all of this, and I’m incredibly impressed with your commitment to supporting the community. I will definitely plan to order from you again after this.”
“Wow! I am blown away and have a lot of gratitude and happy tears right now. This is amazing! I can’t even begin to tell every member who made this possible just how much I appreciate it!”
“I am totally surprised by your kindness and generosity. I am crying while reading your email. You don’t know how you have touched my heart. When I was feeling so alone you came along and made me feel like someone cared. Thank you!”
“Thank you so much. I’m in tears. I just found out I was losing almost $500 in income—much more than I initially thought. This is a blessing. I am so appreciative of you and your members. Hopefully, one day soon, I will be able to pay this forward. I will, that’s a promise.”
“I just want to say thank you so much. I have four kids at home right now and I was able to purchase healthy snacks for them while we are sheltering in place for COVID-19. Besides getting them healthy snacks, I was able to find dairy- and nut-free snacks for my 8 year-old who has life-threatening allergies. He was so thrilled to try new items I didn’t even know were available. Your generosity means the world to us.”
