“My elderly neighbor has limited access to the internet. I have been calling her every other day so we can catch up. She has taught me a lot about gardening and with her advice, I have planted some herbs!”


“I am taking part in a weekly video lunch hour with my colleagues so we can all talk to each other and de-stress!”


“I started teaching taekwondo to my friends over video call. This gives us all a chance to stay connected while learning something new!”


“My family lives on the other side of the world and we don’t normally get the chance to talk to each other often. Now, we have Zoom calls everyday so that we can stay up to date with how everyone is doing.”
