Brian Schwartz, a former VP of a digital advertising agency in New York, was laid off in mid-June due to the COVID-19 crisis.

He decided to spend his time giving back while he searched for a new job.

“I just want to do good,” Schwartz said. “It feels good, it feels right, following my heart.”

With bills mounting and a newborn at home, Schwartz said he believes in good karma.

“It’s been a really tough stretch the last few months for all of us,” he said. “It’s stressful and I just wanted to put some good out there.”
