It’s also important because it reminds people that “things” are still happening. When all you see in the news is about shutdowns and Covid, it’s hard to see that people are still in business, and are still creating, etc.

Yes things are happening. And to let your business or to see a business grind to a halt does not make sense. Biggest thing is to pivot and adapt.

Hi everyone. I'm in the entertainment industry and organize Paint Nite events. In good times I do them at various restaurants in Metro Vancouver. Now I do virtual events. They are all for all ages starting with 6+y.o. I know with so many kids at home it could be a good idea for parents with kids to have some fun and paint something together. https://www.yaymaker.com/hosts/geetanjali-teamgalina-10002468/ Here's the link. Thanks Galina
