As a startup, we’re as worried as the next person about these uncertain times and wanted to check in with our community. We’re really great at trying new things so we’re going to channel that energy into figuring this out 💪 and bring a little joy ☀️ into the world, however we can.
Keep sending and connecting 🧡
We work with lots of hospitality businesses – both big and small – who are at risk of closing under the impact of Coronavirus on high streets, and want to do all we can to support them.
Although we can’t encourage you to collect your microgifts during this time of social distancing, we can encourage you to keep sending them to collect and enjoy when this all blows over. By doing this, you are still putting money 👛 into the pockets of our hospitality partners for later, and continuing to harness human connections from afar.
Donating from a distance 💰
We think we’ve come up with a way for you to donate to our partners without visiting stores, but need to work it through as a team. Keep your eyes peeled for an update on that.
Stay positive ☀️
We have a community of amazing people – from those who send microgifts to those who supply them. We’ll be keeping morale high over on socials, so head over there (@huggg_uk) for a little something to brighten 🌞 your day.
In the meantime, we will be doing all we can to add some contactless options to the platform, so you are better able to care for your families and friends from a distance – think food deliveries, or movie rentals. If this sounds good to you, we’d love to know.
From all of us 🧡
