If there’s one thing we know about our GoodBookey charity partners, it’s that they’re resilient in the face of crisis. Even in normal times, they are on the front lines taking care of our most vulnerable and underserved, including children, the elderly, those with chronic and life-threatening diseases, disabled veterans, and many more.
Through the unfolding COVID-19 pandemic, our charity partners are once again proving their special brand of resilience.
