I recently learned about a an amazing organization, 4-CT, which was created in March of 2020 when a group of philanthropists and volunteers sought to fill unmet needs of Connecticut residents being disproportionately affected by the pandemic.

With the goal of rapidly and effectively delivering relief, 4-CT aligned with the state government to fill in gaps where federal and government aid was lacking. This lead to the creation of the 4-CT Card program, a way to provide direct cash assistance via prepaid cards to individuals and families facing financial difficulties caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

By partnering with select community based organizations and Federally Qualified Health Centers across the State, 4-CT was able to utilize their knowledge and expertise to get the cash assistance to those in the most need.

Even now that we are over a year into the pandemic and for many of us, life is starting to feel normal again, there are still many people in Connecticut facing hardships as a direct result of the pandemic. Help CT Bounce Back this summer by participating in their #4CTBounceBack campaign with a $25 donation to!

  1. That blue dress is adorable on you and this sounds like a great organisation to support! We were lucky with the 6 week lockdown back in March that the government brought in extra support for everyone and guaranteed jobs and wages for a few months - but now because they don't have enough vaccines for us they are having to bring those programs back in as some states are having long lockdowns again. Sydney is up to 3 weeks in lockdown now I think which is crazy!

    Hope your week is going well :)
