Kudos for Care

Honoring Our Nurses on the Front Lines

Help “Kudos for Care” honor and support nurses through the COVID-19 pandemic crisis.
Kudos For Care is giving back to our frontline health workers by providing meals, protective equipment, relief for expenses, rewards and recognition.


Kudos For Care has created an online community of powerful stories shared by nurses and healthcare workers fighting the COVID-19 pandemic.
> Nurses helping patients dying alone without family.
> Nurses avoiding their homes and family members for fear of infecting loved ones.
> Nurses enlisted to COVID units, working long hours and extra duties, facing anxiety about insufficient protection and supplies, exhausted and distraught.
We want to hear your stories and we want to give back.

Nurse advocate Debbie Johnston created Kudos For Care to support our exceptional healthcare heroes, and to share their heroic stories of dedication and bravery. Click here to watch her message.
