Quarantine Connections Online

Started by two Iowa State college students already driven mad by quarantine, Project Q is about bringing people together in a time of social isolation and quarantines. It is a website and social experiment aimed at those currently most impacted by the recent events. Project Q is a social media platform offering group video calls, chat rooms, streaming service integration, and a user sourced news collective containing the most up to date articles concerning the ongoing pandemic.

 

Project Q will be more than just a social media platform, its goal is to symbolize the changes taking the world by storm. Project Q is not forever, the website will be archived and taken down once quarantines are lifted, and people can come together again. All accounts will be deleted and no longer accessible once this happens.

 

I want to take a second and explain what your donation will be used for,

Hiring, It takes time and effort to pull off an endeavor like this, Programmers, website designers, and moderators are all required to make sure everything goes as smoothly as it can.

Advertising, Spreading the word about the website will be an initial hurdle but once the user base grows people will be brought to the site by others

Remaining Ad Free, Due to the short-lived nature of Project Q I believe it entirely possible to run ad free from your donations now, and the donations of users while the site is active. General Website upkeep, domain, and hosting fees are our biggest factors here.

Many people who now are facing isolation have pre-existing conditions, anxiety, depression, high stress, these are going to be made worse by the ongoing quarantine. I want to make a place where people can come together, a place where people don’t have to feel so alone. I am asking you to donate to help make change in the lives of people who need it.

 

Thank you for your time.
