    Everyone with an internet connection knows by know the gravity of the current global pandemic.

    There's no way we can extrapolate data to know how this plans out, but even by conservative estimates, tens of millions will die, globally. Big data is hard to think about practically, so let's put it this way: every one of us will directly know someone who dies of COVID-19.

    I'm sure everyone here is sick of hearing about it.
    SO, while we #staythefuckhome and wash our hands, why not do a new type of #28trickslater?

    What if we did a DS community edit, while we are all cooped up?
    We could even do a "Tip Jar" on Vimeo and donate all proceeds to meals on wheels, the red cross, or some other helpful organization.

    We could call it SlayVid-19 (if only it was still 2019)

    loving the idea. I have already started filming for my own "Corona Compilation" or something along those lines.
    If the community edit happens I'll be glad to use my clips for that.

    Only problem is my gopro dies from time to time but all that is managable lol

    Sorry I know this isn’t about the “stay the F home challenge” but I do want to challenge the community to help/donate where & when you can. I’ve got a decent amount of 10/10 damas I’m going to be auctioning off on here and/or IG to highest bidders with reserves in place, to try and raise money for my friends in service industry that are out of jobs/work and are possibly going to be facing difficult days to come. I have a bunch of SOL collabs, A rare exotic wood sweets rolling pin, I think I have some Sweets (boost shaped kendamas). Be on the look out in the Sales/Exchange thread and DM me on IG @jsteez5024 for quick responses.

    We've been trying out video chat programs to see about doing virtual jams. So far we've had the best luck with Skype group video chat. Second is Google Hangouts. We tried Zoom but the bandwidth requirements seem a bit high and it's not as intuitive as the others.
