Over the past several years, we’ve put on Makers Festivals in order to encourage makers to build, tinker and launch products in a short period of time. It’s like a hackathon, but always online and open to people from all backgrounds (not just software developers), all around the world.
With the proliferation of work from home mandates over the past few weeks, we thought it would be a great time to host a global, WFH festival that focuses on relief efforts (in any form) for the COVID-19 pandemic. At Product Hunt, we’ve already seen a ton of products launch that focus on helping people during this time, including things like a rational shopping list generator
, a mask matching tool
, a self-quarantine book club
, a resource for supporting local businesses
and database of projects looking for volunteers
. We even launched our own Product Hunt Merch shop last week focused on WHO's COVID-19 response fund
. Now we’re challenging you to do the same.
