Website Features Messages of Hope to Health Care Workers
The National Institutes of Health Federal Credit Union (NIHFCU) has launched SendaMessageofHope.com, a website where anyone can post an inspiring message of gratitude to health care workers, showing support for them during this challenging time. As video or photo messages are posted, they are shared with hospitals, health care clinics and more.
“We have always been honored to serve those who help keep the world safe, from the committed health care professionals who care for our health to the amazing biomedical professionals at the National Institutes of Health,” said Rick Wieczorek, NIHFCU president and CEO. “In these unprecedented times, there are so many people, including our members, who have stepped up to combat this crisis on the front lines and we wanted to find a way to express our gratitude and share support.”
The site welcomes everyone who wants to post a video or photo message to share with health care professionals. For example, messages can consist of a child’s work of art, a tribute song and so on. When the frontline workers take a short break or get home from their shift, they can visit the site and get a dose of hope from all who contribute.
Steve Levin, NIHFCU’s vice president of marketing and business development, added, “Thousands of our credit union members are among the millions of health care heroes worldwide fighting COVID-19. Through the site, we can all send a message of hope to these amazing people as they make sacrifices for the rest of us.”
