Comforting Content for COVID Coping

Comforting Content for COVID Coping

The OpenLab Community Team would like to invite the City Tech community to join this project as a space to share comforting content– baby animals, rainbows, photos of your pets, nature scenes, soothing music or videos, wholesome memes, etc. All members will be added as “Contributors,” meaning you can create your own posts featuring whatever comforting content you love, which will then be curated by the Community Team. If you’re interested in writing about your own experiences during the COVID-19 outbreak or reading submissions from others, this project is not intended for that purpose, but we’re hoping to launch a separate place on the OpenLab for our campus community to commiserate (alliteration is fun!) very soon.
