SEND YOUR LOVE AND SUPPORT
LEAVE A MESSAGE TO THOSE IN NEED
We are collecting messages to those who need support and a few uplifting and understanding words. These messages will be added to a collective audio that will be posted on the Coworking Values Podcast.
You can listen to the previous set of messages we collected.
The idea of the audio messages is to express presence, support to our Ukrainian siblings, colleagues, family members, and friends.
Here are some questions to help your thought process when recording the message:
- How do you feel about the situation?
- What does it mean to you?
- Can you help in any way?
Some guidelines when recording your message
- Each audio message should last 30 to 60 seconds max.
- Every audio message should be in english, the name of the person, and the company or organization that is represented. No ads, no explanation of what the org/business makes.
- The audio messages can be forwarded to +38640215600 via whatsapp or Signal
