New York Arts Community Unites to Halt Ebola
We are a coalition of artists of all disciplines in New York City and vicinity working to stem the international Ebola epidemic by mobilizing our talents and our audiences.
More than most communities, we have learned from AIDS the benefit of early action in the face of a global viral epidemic.
We are stepping up to the challenge of taking action on Ebola and providing an example to other communities. We can make a difference.
FIRST STEP, SUPPORT THE "FIRST RESPONDERS"
There is a daunting lack of international medical staff for the treatment of Ebola patients. Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) (aka "Doctors without Borders”) are right at the frontline, of this, doing their best to help affected countries. Please contribute to the Emergency Relief Fund for Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF).
Outbreaks such as Ebola create a unique set of public health challenges: the disease spreads quickly, the death toll is high, supplies of protective equipment (such as disposable rubber gloves) are scarce, the government is distrusted, local health care facilities have been abandoned, and the local health care system has collapsed. MSF desperately needs funds for its emergency relief funds to overcome these and other challenges.
All donations submitted here will be earmarked for Ebola Emergency Response.
You will be directed to a donations page
on the Doctors Without Borders (MSF) website.

TAKE PRIDE AND BE AN EXAMPLE
The private sector response to the Ebola epidemic is still in an early stage. Take pride in being a leader and "showing the way."
