The virus, still in full effect and having taken a lot from everyone, has not deterred the human spirit, with the world slowly beginning to make a combined effort to help the global population against the virus. This has helped make the situation for many bearable, with these kinds of aid coming in many and multiple forms.
In Colorado Springs, there have been two instances of help that have made headlines in the state of Colorado. The first is of a lone individual, given the alias of ¨TP Ninja¨, where he has been delivering toilet paper in his signature TP mask since the 24th of March, and as of yet the individual has remained anonymous while also delivering the much needed TP. The second comes from YouTubers Andrew Scites and Justin Stuart, who earlier in October bought $5,000 worth of toilet paper, with the abundance of toilet paper now being donated to senior living homes.
In many countries of the world, traveling is heavily restricted, but many people still find a way to travel even if it's not advised. In the Mexican state of Guerrero, a group of vigilante and the local population have created checkpoints to stop foreign tourists from entering their beaches, preventing the spread of the virus. Although xenophobic, this act is one of the many ways to prevent the virus from spreading to uninfected areas.
Many businesses have also entered the fray, with many companies aiding governments and communities. Amazon has set aside $7 million to communities and also deliver test kits, Apple has sent 20 million masks for health workers across the whole United States, Audible has provided their stream services for educational and children books, Beyond Meat has been donating 1 million beyond burgers to healthcare workers and hospitals.
There are many more examples of heroic actions made by individuals, organizations, and companies, but this goes to show that as a species working together towards a common goal for the good of all is not impossible.
