Charities are Getting Creative During COVID-19. The Unexpected Ways Some are Staying Afloat

Every day during October, 66-year-old Los Angeles resident Mitch Besser stepped outside to his Concept2 rowing machine, muscling out a total for the month of 500,000 meters, or nearly 311 miles. Besser accomplished that feat — rowing an average of 10 miles each day — as part of a virtual fundraiser for Mothers2mothers, a charity he founded in 2001 when he was a doctor in South Africa to provide education and support for HIV-positive mothers and children. The organization usually raises money with a sponsored group bike ride, which every two years reaped as much as $250,000 and familiarized donors with the people and places helped by their contributions. #WOW
