In the midst of the COVID-19 outbreak, hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of students were displaced from their learning environments. GrademyEssay was created as a reaction to a crisis that affected nearly students in the US; it is a peer-editing platform that connects people who want their essays to be revised and people who can edit those essays. We are a completely free essay feedback service; however, recently, we have been overwhelmed with essay submissions and severely short-staffed, and we lack an efficient solution to deal with these problems. Right now, we respond to every email individually (over 100 emails a day) and manually access google links to edit student's essays. We are trying to raise money to develop a new website that can automate reply emails and incorporate a user-friendly essay submission interface.
