Say Thanks

Actions include thanking every health care worker you know, joining Operation Front Porch to join millions around the world showing support every evening for those on the front lines of the virus by stepping outside and making noise for 60 seconds, saying “Thanks for Working” to every essential business worker you come in contact with.

The incremental time for these actions range from less than one minute to about an hour.

The cost for these actions is almost always less than a dollar.
