“When I launched Girls’ Night In as a way to celebrate the joys of staying in, I never imagined that 'staying home' would one day become less of a choice and more of a mandate. Now, as we operate in a whole new world — one that includes the global COVID-19 pandemic — “staying home” has taken on a whole new urgency and meaning.
We believe right now, staying home isn’t just an act of kindness — it’s an act of community care.
Together, by staying home and reducing contact with others, we can all help flatten the curve and ensure our healthcare system can handle the magnitude of this virus.
We recognize for many — like the brave people working in hospitals, grocery stores, and essential jobs around the world — staying home isn’t an option right now. But if it is an option for you, we want to help you fully commit to it. As we socially distance in the days and weeks to come, we’ll be filling this site with resources to help you take care, help your neighbors, support your local small businesses, and care for those who are struggling through very real tough realities, from job loss to sickness.
This isn’t an easy moment in time, but it’s one we hope to help improve by doing what we do best: staying home and taking care of ourselves and each other.”
