Dear Singapore, we’re in for a month of indoor life. But that doesn’t mean that everything comes to a standstill. Life goes on, and there’s much that we can do, to support others locally who are not as lucky as we are.
Carousell will be doing our best to ensure that users and local businesses can continue business and life as usual. After all, when supporting local helps us all tide through together, Everyone Wins.
Here are our efforts to #SupportLocal, whether you’re a business owner, charitable organisation, freelancer or Carousell user!
- I need support as a local charity/business owner or freelancer
- I would like to continue using Carousell for my online shopping needs and to support local Carousellers
- I would like to help other users
- Tips for adjusting to this new normal
