We’re three weeks into our national lockdown and it’s been tough. In order to stop the spread of COVID-19 in South Africa and #FlattenTheCurve, we have all been encouraged to stay home and stay safe.
The COSMO team have been lucky enough to be able to work from home (and dressing from the waist up for Zoom calls) and have been hard at work to get the absolutely fab May Issue ready for you. But in the meantime, we are also dedicated to creating epic digital content to keep you entertained, informed and interested. From guided meditations to workout sessions to closet tours and much more, we have a packed Instagram Live and Zoom Webinar schedule that you would want to indulge in. And, of course, not forgetting our daily website content that’s tailored to you during this period – like which local brands are having sales, and how to end your Zoom calls without being awkward, you know, the important things.
But it’s not enough for us just to do our bit, we also have to stand behind and support the essential workers such as grocery store employees, petrol attendants, law enforcement officials and healthcare workers who put themselves at risk every day. We are also supporting the Solidarity Fund which supports those whose lives have been disrupted by the pandemic, those who have lost their jobs, are unable to work and are struggling to make ends meet.
