In 2020, we have seen a global pandemic, high unemployment, and more. According to Wallethub caring means having a connection with others and being concerned for their wellbeing.

"Caring means having a connection with others and being concerned for their wellbeing. It can be expressed in many ways — from helping an elderly person cross the street to fighting a house fire. In 2020, Americans need to feel cared for more than usual as they face a global pandemic, high unemployment, and more"

When trying to find the most caring cities in the country, Wallethub looked at 39 different indicators comparing 100 of the largest cities in the country. When it was all said and done, St. Paul was rated #6 and Minneapolis was rated #9.

As an entire country, according to Wallethub, Americans have donated nearly $450 billion dollars, which is down roughly 2.4% from a year ago. I think this is impressive to see so many people stepping up, especially during a pandemic when so much is unknown.

Boston was rated #1, Madison, Wisconsin #2, and New York, NY was rated #3.
