#HowWiHelp highlights helpers in Wisconsin

Effort created by Wisconsin Department of Tourism

MADISON, Wis. (WKBT) – A new effort online is focusing on how people in Wisconsin are supporting each other.

Travel Wisconsin has launched the ‘HowWiHelp’ hashtag on social media.

The effort comes during a time when tourism decreased in Wisconsin and across the globe.

Tweets from around the state have already been shared pointing out people from around Wisconsin are helping each other.

“We need to do what we can to support the businesses that are so important to tourism so that can make it through to the otherside,” said Sara Meaney, Wisconsin Department of Tourism Secretary-Designee.

Temporary food shelves, mask donations and charity donations are just some of things that have already been highlighted.
