日前由沃草共同創辦人林祖儀、網紅阿滴、志祺七七、318集資紐時廣告共同發起人張少濂與知名設計師聶永真等人，10日發起網路集資，要在紐約時報刊登「台灣人寫給世界的一封信」全版廣告駁斥譚德塞。短短15小時湧入大量台灣網友支持，募資總金額已超過1900萬元。計畫團隊也表示收到一些建議的訊息，在認真閱讀消化後，決定更新文案內容，並以「WHO CAN HELP? TAIWAN.」為開頭。
〈 26,980 位台灣人民寫給世界的一封信〉第二版文案選擇問卷點這裡：密碼：taiwancanhelp
WHO CAN HELP? TAIWAN.
This is the crisis of our lifetime. We mourn with you the lives lost and livelihoods destroyed. At this difficult time of isolation, please know that you are not alone.
Taiwan has been devastated by pandemics before. We lost friends, loved ones, and brave medical professionals to the 2003 SARS epidemic.
As we have been excluded from international health organizations and left to fend for ourselves, we too have felt isolated.
Taiwan knows what the world is going through, so we have done everything possible to share vital knowledge with the world and give out lifesaving resources to those in need.
In the past 3 months, we have worked with the US and the EU on advanced rapid testing and vaccines for COVID-19, and we have given out 16 million face masks to support medical workers around the world, with many more on the way.
We might not have a lot to give, but what we have, we’ll share with you. At a time of isolation, we choose solidarity.

WHO CAN HELP? TAIWAN.
You are not alone. Taiwan is with you. We want you to know that in isolation there is solidarity.
We know what you are going through. We know how hard it is. We mourn with you the connections lost. Both lives and livelihoods.
Taiwan, having been devastated by the SARS epidemic in 2003, knows.
Taiwan, having been isolated by the WHO, knows.
But no one can exclude us from contributing to international efforts by sharing how we contained the outbreak, managed our resources, ensured masks for all and the continuation of life, school, and businesses.
In the past 3 months, we have provided 16 million face masks to support medical workers around the world and have worked together with the US and the EU on the most advanced rapid tests and vaccines for COVID-19.
Who can isolate Taiwan? No one.
Because we are here to help.

團隊表示，「我們在國際知名的美國報紙上買廣告，是希望美國人及紐時的英文讀者清楚瞭解，面對 WHO 秘書長的攻擊，台灣的立場有多麼不同。」而此文案由住在美國加州、每日閱讀紐約時報的英語母語人士所撰寫，讓可能不瞭解台灣的國情與處境紐時讀者，能有效傳遞台灣的意念。
