​Nominate an LA2050 Safer at Home Hero!

Posted March 14, 2021 by Team LA2050

We need your help to recognize and reward the heroes who have stepped up to serve their fellow Angelenos during COVID-19.

On March 19, 2020, at 11:59 pm, the City of LA's Safer at Home orders began. The nearly one year since has brought immense suffering and tragedy. But, life during the pandemic has also brought countless examples of hope and help, of sacrifice and selflessness, and of communities caring for one another.

From brave frontline medical workers to essential grocery store staff, families coping together with online school, older adults making phone calls to check-in on neighbors, and college students volunteering at testing sites, Angelenos have stepped up to care for each other and for our communities. We're designating these incredible individuals our LA2050 Safer At Home Heroes.

As a small gesture of respect and gratitude to all the heroes among us, LA2050 is giving away 10 $50 gift cards to Gifts for Good, an online marketplace to purchase meaningful products from socially-conscious companies.

To join in: Nominate an #LA2050SaferatHomeHero by tagging someone in the comments on our @LA2050 Instagram post and briefly explaining why this person is deserving. You can nominate as many people as you want (one comment per nomination, please!).

Nominations will close on Thursday, March 18, 2021 at 3 pm, so make sure to comment before then. We'll randomly select 10 winners after the drawing closes and post the results on Friday, March 19, 2021. Nominations will be accepted on the honor system (we're trusting that you're providing us with true information). We reserve the right to remove inappropriate or unkind comments from the drawing.

Most importantly, a huge THANK YOU to everyone out there who has been a hero in our communities during this time.
