    Hi Everyone,

    Here in AZ, our AZ Gives Day event is April 7th. We were gearing up to start promoting this when the COVID-19 crisis hit. We've already secured a matching gift so we'd like to move forward with AZ Gives Day and use it to leverage support during this unsettling time. Here's my question: one of my strategies has been to tactfully encourage our organization's staff to help spread the word via their social media. Just a light ask to help. Given the current situation, what are your thoughts on still asking colleagues to help spread the word about the Giving Day? Even if they just did one post would be great.
