SITUATION ANALYSIS 

After getting a call from long-time friend, Casting Director & Producer Leah Daniels-Butler; Nunez and Butler discussed how the Covid-19 quarantine has directly affected all of the out of work actors that may not qualify for SAG-AFTRA benefits. Butler, with her passion for actors and the well-being of others suggested to Nunez that they needed to take a negative and turn it into a positive and suggested that they use her 501(c)(3): The Help.Give.Care Foundation, to start a fund to help those actors who don’t qualify for union benefits. Since then they have reached out to several celebrity friends and Hollywood executives that have all agreed to lend a helping hand in their efforts.
