Like many people, I spent the week huddled at home, wrangling the new challenges of home-schooling my children and a bleak outlook for the economy and jobs. I’ve been watching parents struggle to find childcare as they go off to do the hard work of police officers, doctors and nurses. I’ve been watching my friend’s small businesses close their doors and reach out frantically worried about how to pay their bills.

We’re working on getting a self-serve signup and onboarding. This will take a little bit of time. In the short term, if you or somebody you know could use StoryPorts please drop an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll get it setup.
