“Kids are feeling the effects of the outbreak, but don’t always understand why grandma can’t come visit, why the special family spring break trip may have been canceled, or why they’re out of school for weeks,” -- Caribu CEO and Co-Founder Max Tuchman
SAN MARCOS, Calif. (PRWEB) March 17, 2020
Due to growing concerns and quarantines over the COVID-19 Pandemic, more than 400M+ children around the world have been dismissed from school, are missing friends, and are unable to see their extended families.
Caribu, the family-friendly video-calling app, is helping bridge the gap created by social distancing and self-isolation by making their award-winning service FREE with UNLIMITED access during this tumultuous time.
“Kids are feeling the effects of the outbreak, but don’t always understand why grandma can’t come visit, why the special family spring break trip may have been canceled, or why they’re out of school for weeks,” said Caribu CEO and Co-Founder Max Tuchman. “Everything we do is about creating more meaningful connections, and that’s what we think is most important right now--keeping families connected in the most engaging way. We’re like Zoom for kids!”
With Caribu, kids can create special moments with their loved ones by going on a virtual playdate where they can read books from an extensive library of popular titles, play games, and even color together in a video-call. Caribu is a way to stay connected and build memories year-round but especially during a time where millions of families are under self-quarantine.
