I worked at one of the startup companies in Jakarta, forced to go back to my hometown because of the impact of covid 19.
Actually it didn't really affect my life because maybe I still had enough savings. But when I met again with my childhood friends, many of them had the uncertainty of life when this pandemic took place. Because most of us work in event organizers, wedding photographers, and other small industries.
Before this, every Friday my sister and I always made small contributions to the extent of the free lunch program, which we collected from the donors, most of whom were people around us. Sadly, the program could not continue because even our donors had difficulty getting food. Things got harder when we began to realize that what we had been doing had required us to deal directly with other people.
So I took the initiative to start new normal, trying to change all our activities to become more digital. But unfortunately we are only a small community that comes from a small town, to get used to and introduce it requires more effort and costs.
My hope is that we can collect donors through our online platform, promote each other community-based small industry products through the internet, have adequate tools to market the creative products that we are involved in, or even just hold a weekly esport tournament that will be aired via streaming with sufficient prizes. , just to stimulate teenagers and tell them that this is not over.
And most importantly make it easier for anyone who is around us. it would be great if you were part of our small movement to start new normal.

But at least, i've tried
