Normally, today would be a national day of Foolishness, with the latest investment prank by The Motley Fool playing out. But as everyone affected by the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic, and that means everyone, what we are facing today is no laughing matter. And nowhere is the impact worse right now than New York.

Instead of TMF's annual prank, and after consulting with the governor’s office for guidance on how we all can be most useful, The Motley Fool is donating $1 million to New York state’s COVID-19 response fund to reach the front lines of this pandemic.

And while TMF understands that so many of you have been hit hard financially as the economic and market landscape has shifted massively underneath us, Fools are encouraged to join with their fellow Fools in supporting New York or an organization in your community, be it through donations, volunteering (if not at risk) or just helping a neighbor.

As ever, being “Motley” is core to who we are. We are strong, not in spite of our differences, but because every one of us can make a unique contribution to the world. To that end, we want to know how you’re making your world smarter, happier, and richer during this crisis.

-- Tom & David Gardner and all at The Motley Fool.
