Surviving Covid19

CrazeVR is a Virtual Reality gaming lounge and education center located in St. Joseph, MI, that opened its doors in May of 2019 (just 11 months ago). Despite our youth as a company, the desire to give back to the community has been strong since the beginning. We have participated in two givebacks (with Junior Achievement and United Way) and had scheduled two more for the month of April (with LOGAN Autism Learning Center of Southwest Michigan and Grace Christian School). Supporting the community, and nonprofits specifically, has always been a passion for the owners, who both have a history of working in the non-profit realm. 
Unfortunately, due to Covid19, and Michigan's Stay Home Stay Safe order, we at CrazeVR had to shut down our Virtual Reality lounge in the middle of March, and are unsure when we will be able to reopen. This is hard on any small business; however, when you combine that with the age of our company, this is potentially lethal. We are aggressively exploring alternative ways to expand CrazeVR, such as 360 and Virtual Tours (for real estate, rentals, event venues, businesses, etc.) and conventions. 
In order to stay afloat financially, we are asking for support from our community. It is our desire to survive this lengthy shutdown, and we cannot do it alone. Gift cards can be purchased on our website and will be honored once we reopen. Our Facebook page other social media platforms will continue to be updated regarding our timelines, and we are always appreciative of the support that comes through the online community as well (please like us on there, if you haven't already). Donations will go directly to our essential expenses (such as rent and utilities). Any amount would be greatly appreciated. Thank you so much for your support, and we hope to see you soon at CrazeVR!
