Built a community sharing platform in my isolation to help with covid19

I was forced into isolation after returning to Melbourne from the US. Luckily, I had a friend in my apartment building to provide me with groceries - but I wondered how the less fortunate would be handling it.

So during my 14 days stuck in my apartment I built this web app to allow people to signal if they need help or offer to provide help. Hopefully it helps someone, somewhere! A friend did the landing page, and another friend is trying to get it out there. Anyway, check it out and register your ability to help your local community.
