With BC reopening, our jobs are too (those that weren’t doing both already). This was an entirely volunteer project with no funding what-so-ever, so we knew it wasn’t going to last forever. We’ve decided to no longer take on new requests.

We managed to help a bunch of businesses we love, and make some great friends along the way. For the next little bit, the site will stay online as a testement to our wonderful volunteers. If someone is interested in taking the keys to the project to help it live on, please email the website key keeper, nathansorochan@gmail.com with a proposal.
