Cheng's Dirty Thirty: COVID-19 Edition

From Emily Cheng

For my 30th, I will be donating to Undocu Workers Fund. The fund helps undoc workers in the service industry who do not have the privilege to apply for unemployment benefits during COVID-19. I will match all donations.

If you asked me in January what I was doing for my 30th birthday, I would've told you that I was going to Croatia with my best friends. Fast forward to today, my 30th birthday plan includes setting up a Zoom (how many Zooms can we take a week, though?) while taking virtual birthday shots as I sit in my apartment in sweats with a full-on Asian glow. 

However, the need for community care is so imperative right now. We all need to take care of  each other right now and as much as I love FaceTiming friends who I haven't connected with in awhile, mailing love letters with my shitty penmanship, reading books that have been on my Goodreads profile for awhile, attempting to make banana bread and failing, and participating in IGTV fitness videos, I acknowledge that there's a lot of folks out there who don't have the privilege most of us have. 

For this year's birthday, I am donating my birthday to RAISE (Revolutionizing Asian American Immigrant Stories on the East Coast). RAISE has created the Undocumented Workers Fund that supports undocumented workers in the service industry who do not have the privilege to apply for unemployment benefits during the COVID-19 health crisis. Your donations will go directly to undocumented folks/families working in industries such as restaurants and nail salons in NYC.

I promise to match all donations. Thank you again for your continuous love & support. 

xx, EmC
