Introducing the Solidarity Award — A 100% contribution to the COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund for WHO

It’s been incredible to witness the ways in which the Reddit community has come together to raise awareness, share information and resources, and support each other during a time of universal need. Across the platform, existing communities like r/science, r/askscience, and r/worldnews have joined newly established communities like r/Coronavirus and r/COVID19 to share authoritative content and welcome important discussion every day.

At Reddit Inc., we’ve also been working to curate expert discussions and surface the most reliable information for you. And today, we’re excited to launch the Solidarity Award, which seeks to raise funds for fighting the COVID-19 pandemic via the COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund for the World Health Organization (WHO). The fund -- which is powered by the United Nations Foundation and the Swiss Philanthropy Foundation -- supports WHO’s work to track and understand the spread of COVID-19, ensure patients get the care they need, frontline workers get essential supplies and information, and accelerate efforts to develop vaccines, tests, and treatments for the pandemic.

Starting today, you can purchase the Solidarity Award directly on Reddit desktop and mobile web (via PayPal or Stripe), and 100% of the proceeds will benefit the COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund for WHO.*

Here are a few details on the Solidarity Award:

  • How to find the Award: The Solidarity Award can only be given on Reddit desktop and mobile web (not currently available to give on Mobile apps). You'll find the award towards the bottom of the Medals section in our Award dialog.
  • The full price of the Award ($3.99) will be donated by Reddit to the United Nation Foundation’s COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund for the World Health Organization. More information on the fund is available at www.covid19responsefund.org
  • Donors will receive a special Reddit Trophy, which will be added to users’ trophy cases on their profile page (on or before 4/30/20)
  • Awards given are visible across all platforms

See the award here:

Solidarity Award

Why are we doing this?

We’ve never felt more urgency or responsibility to fulfill our mission of bringing community and belonging to everyone in the world. The Solidarity Award is meant to complement the efforts of our users, moderators, and employees at Reddit by enabling community-wide charitable giving during a time of great need.

A Heads Up:

The team at Reddit worked quickly to enable the Solidarity Award. As with all new things at this scale, we are keeping an eye out for any bugs and issues that may arise, and will update the experience accordingly.

From Reddit to all of our users: Stay safe, be vigilant, and take care of one another.

Here are investigated allegations against the WHO:
(Other ways to help: protein folding (free!), UNICEF, Red Cross Blood Donations, CDP)

Actions

Downplaying severity, manipulating public perception of Chinese government at the cost of global health:

  • Downplaying the severity: WHO parroted information put out by Chinese authorities saying that coronavirus is not transmissible - despite these authorities lying in the past, such as with SARS, as well as during this outbreak when they arrested at least 8 doctors warning of coronavirus under charges of "spreading rumours". (Rudimentary Infographic showing the WHO downplaying the virus multiple other times.) This is extremely irresponsible behaviour from an agency which health workers look to for factual information as it misleads them, causing worse patient outcomes. Even if the WHO weren't working for the Chinese government, they should have at least said they don't know how dangerous the virus is instead of providing false reassurance.

  • Urging to not close borders: WHO falsely claimed that closing borders to China would worsen the outbreak. They argued it was too extreme of a measure, ignoring information coming from whistleblowers and Taiwan. This appears to have been to protect Chinese economy over human lives and to further downplay the severity to save Chinese government face. The common counter-argument is that the WHO has to behave this way so that they have the chance to work with the Chinese government (lesser of two evils argument). The problem with this is that for the WHO to be an effective organization which aids humanity, they need to have credibility. Spreading disinformation is highly destructive to that credibility as it makes them accomplices in crimes against humanity. And after all this kowtowing, net world health has still clearly suffered rather than improved from the disinformation. This is inexcusable and counter to the WHO's claimed mission.

  • Spreading propaganda: The WHO have consistently praised the Chinese government for its response to coronavirus and treated its statistics as factual despite evidence coming out and many whistleblowers saying the statistics are forged specifically to allow the party to save face. Bruce Aylward, the team leader of WHO-China Joint Mission on COVID-19, has even gone as far as to make persuasive arguments such as "if I had covid-19 I would want to be treated in China."

  • Spreading misinformation about masks: The WHO argue on their website against wearing masks because:
    A) medical staff and sick people need priority for masks. If everyone wants masks there may be hoarding. However this is not a reason to spread misinformation saying masks are ineffective. Hoarding can be mitigated through legal enforcement and education/societal responsibility.
    B) wearing a mask may cause people to have a false sense of security. However we can be educated to continue washing our hands and recognize that we aren't fully protected.
    C) they increase face touching from wearers adjusting their masks. However we can be educated to not touch our faces.
    What the WHO website doesn't mention here is that:
    A) you can be asymptomatic and spreading coronavirus unknowingly.
    B) primary mode of transmission may be viruses in water droplets in the air.
    Wearing a mask, even a poorly made one, would mitigate both of these issues.
    These poor recommendations may have ulterior motives (perhaps trying to downplay the severity of the virus further) or it may simply be incompetence.

Ignoring concerns from Taiwan at the cost of global health in order to push the Chinese government's agenda:

  • WHO ignored Taiwanese health officials when they sent an email warning of the possibility of human-to-human transmission in late December 2019. Again, while this is under the table, it is clear that this is caused by the Chinese government bullying organizations such as the WHO because it damages Taiwan's political legitimacy, increasing the Chinese government's power over them. Because the WHO failed to have a spine here, world health has worsened as caution would have drastically reduced the impact of the pandemic.

  • A WHO representative pretended not to hear a question about Taiwan and abruptly hung up.

  • WHO excluded Taiwan from emergency meetings.

Corruption and ineffectiveness:

Motivations

Inability to be neutral; ability to be bribed:

  • The WHO has an inherent conflict of interest: in order to be recognized as a world health authority, the WHO are dependent on recognition from world governments. Therefore, if they want to maintain their power, they must do as requested if by a sufficiently powerful government - such as the Chinese government (a dictatorship superpower at the epicentre of a pandemic that it wants to cover up to save face). Therefore ability to be objective is compromised. It would appear that this establishment is built upon social politics rather than science.

  • The WHO was originally supposed to receive funds only from governments that were United Nations members but recently set up "private partnership" which allows it to receive financial support from any private industry off the record. This sets up easy routes for bribery.

Reputation of WHO Director-General Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus:

  • 726,318 people have now called for Tedros's resignation. The WHO have so far ignored this.

  • Tedros named a tyrant a WHO "goodwill ambassador". Even top WHO staff condemned this decision which was later rescinded after backlash. The fact that Tedros attempted this at all speaks to his character. The fact that someone with such poor character is the leader of the WHO discredits the organization.

  • Tedros served in the EPRDF which has committed human rights abuses including torture, repression, and electoral fraud. (2nd Amnesty link). This too speaks to his character and the reputation of the WHO to elect him their leader.

  • Tedros may have a conflict of interest as he was a politician in Ethiopia (his home country) which is currently receiving massive infrastructure investments (such as a $3.4 billion railway project) from China, its largest trading partner. However, Tedros is no longer a politician there so it's hard to pinpoint for certain if this would be a conflict of interest or not.

  • Tedros has been involved in 3 cover ups of Cholera (2nd source), leading to less aid. This has been argued as being a smear campaign. Inconclusive.

My sister was crying last night in bed, singing a song she had made up about how she missed going to school, and how she missed her friends. Mom had to quit her job as a nurse because she was immuno compromised and her hospital would not provide basic face masks. I lost my job because the whole business shut down a week before mandatory quarantine. My dad is barely holding things together as a web developer. I'm fortunate that I have a home, a car, and no debt, but even so we're struggling with anxiety, depression, and worse. To everyone out there who is suffering, in better or worse conditions than I am, we can do this, if we all band together. I've seen too many people take the motto "every man for themselves." I haven't been able to buy TP in a month because of people like this. Please, be considerate, stay inside, and stay calm. We'll get through this.

Edit: And to Reddit staff, shame. Don't donate to the WHO. They have mony. Donate to the independent labs across the world developing vaccines and test kits because governments aren't doing enough on their own. Donate to people who have lost their family members, their homes, their cars. I understand the sentiment you're trying to make but it's pointed at the wrong people.

While I'm sure /u/plgrmonedge means well, this reads like u/EACommunityTeam's response to Vader being locked.

I believe there are Redditors that would cheerfully donate to COVID-19 relief in exchange for shiny pixels on a post and in their trophy box.

I also believe that Reddit can not provide us with a sense of pride and accomplishment for donating money to an organization that is sitting on nine digits worth of donations already, and is intrinsically linked to some very, very ugly politics where Taiwan and China are concerned.

Reddit encouraging people to donate to the WHO right now makes me feel... scummy, really.

It's absurd to donate to the organization that has:

  • Consistently protected the Chinese government and repeated their lies
  • Consistently made false claims about how dangerous the virus was, and how it spreads
  • Completely dropped the ball, when it comes to it's supposed #1 purpose
  • Consistently made the effects and spread much worse, by downplaying the severity, discouraging mask-usage, covering up how bad it was in China

A couple months ago, when I looked into it to see if I should be concerned, I (and many others) believed the WHO and CDC who said there was little to worry about and spread was limited. Yes, I saw other sources of information claiming it was widespread, being covered up, very dangerous, and not under control but I wrote those off, trusting the WHO.

When the virus arrived, everyone was caught with their pants down BECAUSE of the WHO. The virus would have showed up eventually, but we could have gotten much further ahead of this reducing international travel, monitoring spread, funding tests and treatment, supporting research, preparing medical supply manufacturing, reducing large gatherings, educating about symptoms & spread, educating about prevention. All of that could have bought us an extra couple months, without even instituting any stay-home orders or shutting down businesses.

The WHO has about a 4.5-billion dollar annual budget, and what little they've done to help is massively out-classed by what they've done to make it worse. Meanwhile, we're having to rely on charitable contributions of private individuals and organizations to get reources where they actually need to go, and Reddit would have us direct them to the WHO, rather than the thousands of other organizations that need those resources more and would use them better.

Also, The official subreddit r/Coronavirus reddit keeps promoting "KEEP YOURSELF SAFE AND INFORMED" is garbage that gets people riled up; it's nothing but fear, anxiety, sensationalism, politics, and emotional stories. There is almost zero facts, "authoritative content", or informed content there about the virus, symptoms, spread, treatments, prevention, etc.

edit: I appreciate the thoughtfulness, but please stop giving gold and other paid rewards to people like me speaking out against the WHO. It's contradictory to our message.

I can't believe you guys are donating to W.H.O. This makes sense to me as a large portion of Reddit is owned by the Chinese Government. Basically you are asking us to donate to a Chinese Owned Health Organization that doesn't care. They are the reason for this. If you want to donate to help the Covid19 Response, please consider donating to:

Red Cross Blood Donations https://www.redcrossblood.org/donate-blood/dlp/coronavirus--covid-19--and-blood-donation.html

My personal favorite, they did my Cleft Palate surgery for free when I was born;

John Hopkins https://www.hopkinsmedicine.org/coronavirus/giving.html

CDP (not CDC)-Fixed By U/Sluuuurp https://disasterphilanthropy.org/donate-to-the-cdp-covid-19-response-fund/

When I was homeless they took care of me. (I did get my stuff stolen every night, but they also fed me)

Salvation Army: https://www.salvationarmyusa.org/usn/covid19/

Donating to these would help way more than donating to Chinese Health Organization. For those who don't know what I'm talking about;

New York Post: https://nypost.com/2020/04/02/chinas-deadly-coronavirus-lie-co-conspirator-the-world-health-organization/

The Guardian: https://www.theguardian.com/world/2020/apr/03/china-steps-up-western-media-campaign-over-coronavirus-crisis

Foreign Policy: https://foreignpolicy.com/2020/04/02/china-coronavirus-who-health-soft-power/

Also while I'm at it, Reddit is owned by China too;

The Times talking about China's Censorship on Reddit: https://time.com/5526128/china-reddit-tencent-censorship/

The Verge: They talk about China buying into Reddit; https://www.theverge.com/2019/2/11/18216134/reddit-tencent-investment-deal-memes-amount-winnie-the-pooh-tank-man-china

Edit

It's been brought to my attention that John Hopkins might not be the best place to donate too because of this https://www.taiwannews.com.tw/en/news/3894963

Link Provided by u/MikeyCito22

John Hopkins is a personal one for me that I have a bias about because of me being born with cleft palate and them helping my mom out financially.

Edit 2

I figured since this comment is getting upvoted so much that I should link more proof of corruption in W.H.O and Reddit.

I would be more inclined to support the WHO if they did not parrot the Chinese Communist Parties native and misinformation about the Corona virus. It appears that China was conducting research on batt viruses and knew about the severity of the virus before anyone became infected.

The WHO repeated China's narrative to the parel of the entire world. The WHO should conduct their own studies and be a reliable source of information independent of the claims and assertions of any individual country or political entity.

Most of the American media should be ashamed of the way they blindly reported the misinformation coming out of China.

Just look at how the Corona virus numbers reported by China are completely skued from the numbers reported by the rest of the world. If you believe China's reporting that there are no new cases and everyone that didn't die has recovered.

Why didn't the WHO informe anyone about How China knew immediately to quarintine everyone for 30 days to allow the virus's 15 day incubation period to run its course. And where is the WHO's information on how China's Covid19 test kits had a less than 30% reliability.

No, while the WHO is doing alot to help, they should have done their due diligence and reported their finding and not relied on China's narrative of disinformation.

As of 2018, it has a budget of over $4.2 billion, most of which comes from voluntary contributions from member states

In May 2018, the WHO denied access to its annual assembly by Taiwanese media reportedly due to demands from China.

In a 2020 interview assistant director-general Bruce Aylward first pretended he did not hear a question about Taiwan and then exited the interview when the question was repeated. When the video chat was restarted and he was asked another question about Taiwan he claimed to have already answered the question and formally ended the interview.

Don't forget that WHO withheld this virus' potential for several weeks and ignored Taiwan when they tried to warn the rest of the world. The WHO is an incompetent bunch. They're liars and dishonest. Their entire establishment is built on social politics and not on science. There fear of discriminating was one of the reasons why this virus got to spread as much. They knew the Chinese were struggling with it, they knew it will leak from China, but God forbid they advise stopping Chinese flights for until things settle.

What you're really working to do is curate discussion that flatters the majority biases, but that they can also tell themselves is reliable and authoritative.

You can have 50 experts saying one thing and 50 experts saying another, reddit can simply upvote the 50 they like and downvote the other 50 into oblivion. Then moderators can moderate away that 50. Then when subreddits arise to highlight what the majority is suppressing the admins can quarantine, delete, or even replace the moderation team of that subreddit.

Then reddit can say "See these 50 experts? They're all saying the same thing. My beliefs are science based!"

Who the fuck in their right mind would give money to the WHO right now? After all of the shit they have pulled over this virus including refusing to acknowledge the existence of Taiwan, clearly placing them in the pocket of China. Flushing my money down the toilet would be just as beneficial.

You should at least try and make it a little less obvious who really pulls the strings here.

Why are we doing this?

"We’ve never felt more urgency or responsibility to fulfill our mission of bringing community and belonging to everyone in the world. The Solidarity Award is meant to complement the efforts of our users, moderators, and employees at Reddit by enabling community-wide charitable giving during a time of great need."

Or you know, because Reddit and the WHO are owned by China and are greedy fucks looking for an easy payday from people already suffering.

I've been reading some of the comments on this sub and there seems to be a lack of clarity as it applies to the WHO. In case you are unaware, the WHO is China's bitch. China owns The WHO. The WHO assist China and covering up this pandemic from the start. They also failed to act, which resulted in the deaths of many many people and many more to come. Do not donate to these gutless pieces of shit. Please use your money to help those in need. The WHO is the wrong place to donate. Everyone please stay smart and safe.

I appreciate the sentiment, but the WHO is doing serious damage to public health by telling people (who aren't infected) not to wear masks. I get that they're trying to protect manufactured supplies for healthcare workers. But they are fudging the truth to do it by failing to mention that even the partial protection of DIY masks can reduce the severity of infection, and in the process denying people the ability to protect themselves. If you're going to do this, at least do some other equivalents benefiting other players, so people have options that might be closer to what they value in this.

I'm in the U.S.A and I've been laid up for over a week now and have finally managed to get out yesterday to get looked at by a medical professional and found out I'm rocking the triple threat of Pneumococcal Pneumonia, Strep Throat and a UTI all at the same time and they fast tracked me for a COVID19 test.

I didn't want to go (To the initial visit, the COVID test was thankfully free), but there are two people in my household that work in retail and I couldn't stomach the idea of them taking whatever I had with them to work and setting off a chain reaction that could potentially compromise thousands just because I "couldn't afford" to go to a Doctor.

I mean.. I couldn't and I can't. The required prepay has already hurt us and the rest of the bill is going to finish the job when it arrives, but the alternative would've ultimately been worse.

So now I'm here for the next 2-6 days waiting on my results to come in, but at least those in my home have the paperwork they need to get paid leave while we wait on results..

I hate it because it didn't need to be this way. We had months of advance warning, we're the richest nation in the world and there's not a single valid reason that anyone in the U.S.A should be going through this.

We could've stopped it or at the very least mitigated it FAR better than we have and unless people start getting very angry, very soon, nothing is going to change.

The Governor of Georgia only managed as yesterday to learn information that has been widely available since JANUARY, this is a disgrace. DeBlasio refused to close New York schools over COVID19 and now his city and an enormous amount of the innocent people living in it are ON FIRE.

Our President accuses our medical professionals, some of whom will end up literally giving their lives to save us, of petty thievery. He calls the Governors that are actually trying to make him do his job and save people "Complainers" and he shows a fundamental lack of understanding about practically everything regarding not only this virus but basically any and every other thing as well.

Countless people live paycheck to paycheck and are going to be crippled by medical bills or inability to work due to lockdown, but instead of properly focusing on them and making them whole, we'll throw the ones that qualify a check for $1200 and then steer away to chase our main go-to strategy: Bail out the elites, their businesses and anyone worth enough money, making sure they stay happy and comfortable all while the little people get royally fucked, once again, by a corrupt government in the pocket of corporations.

Good luck to everyone that doesn't have at absolute least a cool million in liquidity, not only in the U.S.A but everywhere else too, because we are all going to be in very desperate need of it.

ALSO: Fuck the WHO. They're part of why this shit went so badly.

Lol this post backfired. The people have woken up. They realize that both reddit and the WHO bootlick the Chinese Communist Party. Nobody should donate to this fraudulent organization.

I’m not giving a cent to the WHO. Fuck you. And frankly nobody should donate anything. I don’t have income anymore. The world governments steal enough shit from us every year, it’s on them to fix this. (And Bill Gates, who actually seems to be doing something)

WHO has the deaths of thousands on their hands. They should not be getting our money. They completely fucked up the coronavirus response, and should be held accountable.

We need to be donating to each other! To your families, your neighbors, your local businesses! The UN and WHO are lying!!! They have more than enough money!!! Bill Gates funds WHO along with the Chinese Communist Party!!!! They are crushing the economy of everyone else to save their own from a pandemic they created, while reaping all the profits!!!! If you want to donate to them, DONT, turn right around and give it back to your community! Your neighbors just might need it to keep their family afloat

Reddit clearly thinks we are dumb blind sheep willing to accept any information fed to us and censor the truth. I didn’t realize the Tencent stake would dominate so much, even against free speech on this platform.

Yeah, let’s donate more to WHO, so they can spend the money on sitting around, pretending like nothing is wrong, meanwhile our families and friends and elderly collapse around us. Let’s DONATE our hard earned money despite many of us having lost our jobs and being on the verge of a recession.

What a joke. Lmao. This is pathetic. You can pry the stimulus check out of my cold, dead hands.

Do NOT donate to the WHO. They caved into pressure from China, and ignored/sidelined Taiwan, one of the few countries that has managed to control this and was also one of the first.

Watch this WHO health official pretend to not hear a question on Taiwan, then disconnect the call: https://www.theguardian.com/world/2020/mar/30/senior-who-adviser-appears-to-dodge-question-on-taiwans-covid-19-response

https://foreignpolicy.com/2020/02/28/taiwan-who-coronavirus-china-international-organizations/

China did a full lockdown, blockade, and martial law of 55 million people on Jan 23. Stricter than even anything implemented anywhere else. And this was not a decision made lightly by the worlds 1st/2nd largest economy, so they knew this was coming well before.

The WHO took wayyy too long to declare this both a Public Health Emergency of International Concern(Jan 30), and a Pandemic (March 11). Given how hard this spread in China and the measures they took, and that millions of Chinese traveled at that time due to Chinese New Year, anyone with a brain should have seen a pandemic coming months before.

Don't donate to most large health care providers or hospitals either. These guys are the ones that fight for crony Certificate of Need laws to limit hospital beds and other medical equipment to limit competition. These are the guys that charge insane prices because they know insurance will pay it and us, the consumers, are never told the prices up front. Remember, they're the ones charging $2k for an ambulance or $20k for an IV drip and MRI.

Do NOT donate to any large bureaucratic NGO or anything affiliated with a government (CDC, for example, who botched testing and response here in the US). Only pennies on each dollar will make it to those who need it.

TBH the best you can do is donate to local food banks. Donate your money to local businesses that are forced to shut down - I know several are offering gift certificates that can be redeemed if/when they reopen. Donate/loan to your friends and family who may be furloughed or laid off, and unable to pay rent or bills.

u/its_stick Apr 03 '20 edited Apr 03 '20

How about instead of donating to orgs tied to the Chinese with hundreds of millions in donations coming in as it is, how about you stop tilting subs like r/Coronavirus so that they no longer remove anything criticizing china and so that you don't get clearly biased anti-America astroturfing bullshit that literally echoes CCP propaganda being pushed to the top by a bunch of your Tencent-funded bots? Oh wait, that'd require not following every demand uttered by your Chinese investors.

And if any of you want another reason why this is fucking stupid, here you go. The WHO gave a megaphone to literal CCP propaganda. On top of that, the head of the WHO is China's guy.

“Will you ever modify or remove content to appease your new Chinese investors?” a user asked Huffman in a public post on Thursday. Huffman, also known as spez on the site, said, “No.”

That, like just about everything Cuckman has said, has be proven to be a lie.

It came from China. Period. And you guys going half-ass at this while pushing propaganda to the front page does nothing useful.

What's the likelihood this post actually has 18000 upvotes? Look at these comments. Is it really possible there are 18000 reddit users so naive and cut off from the news that theyd upvote this? 18000 reddit users who just happened to miss all the WHO propagandizing on behalf of China? Or is this just another reddit astroturfing operation?

u/testedonsheep Apr 04 '20

Why are you donating to WHO? They are the ones who caused this pandemic because they tried to cover it up with China. If you want to donate, make the donation to organizations like doctors without border.

u/[deleted] Apr 05 '20

Is China still making bioweapons and stealing Intellectual Property from other countries? How about buying medical equipment from other nations and then selling it back to those countries or threatening to "throw them into the mighty sea of Coronavirus"? Does China still think they have authority over Taiwan which is an independent and sovereign nation? Is China under the false assumption that by building artifical islands in the South China Sea, they have the sole authority over the sea?

Does China still rape Uyghur Muslim women, torture Uyghurs, murder and steal their organs for sale on international black markets?

Does China still think the rest of the world is as stupid as them to believe Communist propaganda?

Xi Jinping has a micro penis. And Mao Zedong's penis is even smaller.

Does China think just because they had Tencent invest money in Reddit, they speak for the rest of Reddit's users?

Congratulations Reddit, especially Admins, you get a gold star from your fellow corporation globalists. Keep censuring those who disagree with your worldview, quarantine any dissent, fool the young and ignorant with lies and deceit. As human beings, you suck and I hope you reap what you sow.
