We hope you and yours are staying safe and healthy during this time. We know that every member of our community is experiencing hardships and uncertainty right now. Some of you are homeschooling your children, some of you have experienced the health impacts of COVID-19, and some of you are already feeling financial strains. Our volunteers at WILD have been struggling with our own personal issues, and reeling from the cancellation or postponement of multiple conferences and events that we were hoping would bring the WILD community together.
During this time of struggle, we must remember that we are a community, and our ultimate goal is to support one another. The most important thing for our members to do at this time is to make sure that they make it through this experience. If you are having trouble, reach out to your friends and supporters in this group. If you are on Facebook, join the WILD group so that you can access those in similar situations. But most of all, take care of yourself and those you love.
We will make it through this. We are Strong. We are Resilient. We are WILD.
