SweetRush brings deep online-learning expertise, having collaborated with 29 nonprofits and foundations to create mission-critical learning solutions for volunteers, humanitarians, and the public at large.
SAN FRANCISCO, March 26, 2020—Three factors led SweetRush to create C.A.R.E. (COVID-19 Action Response eLearning Center), pivoting to apply its craft developing training solutions and help in this universal moment of crisis:
- SweetRush is currently helping create COVID-19 online, mobile learning materials for frontline healthcare workers, after being approached by two key players, a government-funded infectious disease research and education agency and a global health and relief nonprofit. These projects are underway.
- SweetRush’s workforce, 100% virtual since 2009, brings 19 years’ experience handling complex, innovative learning solutions while working from home. We are skilled and ready to support these critical efforts with customized strategies.
- SweetRush’s Good Things division has supported 29 nonprofits and foundations, developing a deep understanding of how to work most effectively with these mission-driven organizations.
“It’s not time for red or blue, but for all of us coming together to unite and support each other. We invite anyone who needs our help doing COVID-19 or humanitarian work to reach out,” said Arturo Schwartzberg, SweetRush Chairman and Cofounder.
Education and communication are critically needed in the fight against COVID-19. SweetRush designs eLearning that provides just-in-time training solutions when and where learners need them, accessible through their own smartphones and tablets. This is why SweetRush has announced the creation of C.A.R.E., dedicated to producing much-needed eLearning solutions to serve those combating the novel coronavirus while protecting their health.
“The essence of our mission at SweetRush is service, and our aspirational goal is to positively impact the lives of a billion people,” said Andrei Hedstrom, SweetRush CEO and Cofounder.
“Our team of passionate, talented learning professionals is ready and eager to use its skills to provide just-in-time training solutions for these brave folks on the front line of the coronavirus pandemic. With C.A.R.E., we are prepared to surge and dedicate resources to building knowledge and skills that will help healthcare professionals and others dealing with this crisis.”

It was recently named Learning Provider of the Year by the Learning & Performance Institute, is considered a top 10 eLearning Solution Provider by eLearningIndustry.com, and has garnered a remarkable array of Brandon Hall Gold awards, validating its depth and breadth of capabilities.

About SweetRush Good Things and C.A.R.E.
SweetRush’s Good Things service (one of its five services) was born out of its aspirational goal of positively impacting the lives of a billion people. Under this service banner, SweetRush has collaborated with 29 nonprofits and foundations in the past two years to create mission-critical online and mobile learning solutions for volunteers, humanitarians, and the public at large.
These collaborations have brought valuable, timely, and accessible resources to first responders around the globe, humanitarian aid workers in Syria, volunteers helping LGBTQ+ youth in crisis, and a long list of customized support for mission-driven entities.
Recognizing the time-sensitive need for COVID-19 learning solutions, SweetRush created the COVID-19 Action Response eLearning Center (C.A.R.E.) to support nonprofits and agencies combating coronavirus around the globe. SweetRush is already collaborating with two organizations to rapidly deploy eLearning and other training materials related to COVID-19 to frontline healthcare workers. This point-of-need training is customized for the needs of the audience, and accessible on demand through their own mobile devices, providing just-in-time resources and support.
