The COVID-19 pandemic has changed every aspect of the world we live in—the way we work, communicate, and even the way we connect with one another. Perhaps no one has felt the impact of this virus more than those suffering from it and their families, and our brave frontline workers who are laboring tirelessly to save lives and stop the spread. The future is uncertain, but one thing is clear: Together, our global community will overcome. Together, we are stronger. From around the world, brands have committed their support to building up those who have been impacted by COVID-19. Here, Harper’s Bazaar, Elle, and Marie Claire gathered their inspiring messages.
Thank you! To those of you working tirelessly to take care of us, thank you for keeping our republic safe.
During this historical moment, we wish you and your families courage, strength, and good health. In times like these we realise what truly matters. Birkenstock is with you. We will stick together and get through this.
As kids, we ﬁrst encountered superheroes in comic books and on the big screen—larger-than-life ﬁgures who donned elaborate costumes to do the seemingly impossible task of saving the world.
Through these difﬁcult months, we’ve been reminded that not all superheroes wear capes. In fact, sometimes they head into battle—into the unknown—without even the most essential protections. Our doctors, nurses, ﬁrst responders and healthcare professionals have risked their lives every day to keep our communities safe and healthy. Our teachers have kept our kids engaged in learning from afar. Our grocery store, pharmacy and delivery workers have ensured we have what we need. Our truck drivers, mail carriers and building staff have helped us maintain a sense of normalcy in the midst of a crisis. And countless others have stepped up to help in ways both big and small.
To all of you, for all that you do:
Thank you, once again for showing us what true heroes look like.
During these difficult times, our thoughts are with you and your loved ones. We hope you are staying healthy, safe, and in good spirits. We will come out of this stronger together.
