Amplifying COVID resources
Hi all, the situation in India continues to be devastating. We know there are a lot of links out there on how to help but we thought it would be helpful to amplify them. Please, please consider donating. Anmol and I have both chipped in, in whatever small way we can. We know it is a drop in an ocean, but every little bit helps right now.
We will also match your donations up to the first $1,000. Please DM / email us your receipts.
Stay safe, everyone.
