Hey, You

Encourage quality Face-To-FaceTime between friends post-quarantine, and benefit COVID-19 recovery to boot.

About the Project


COVID took a lot from us — jobs, freedom, even lives — but it also brought us closer to the far-flung friends we started video chatting regularly.

Let's not give that one good thing back.

Our idea is to build a monthly, one-click way to FaceTime a friend you don't want to lose touch with again. Do it if you can, skip it if you can't — but to keep you honest, *every time you skip a call you make a donation to COVID recovery*.
