Support DC was a project I created at the beginning of Covid-19 to support local businesses who were in need of money.
It aggregated data on restaurants, shops, and other small businesses in the DC area and how to support them - how to buy gift cards, order takeout, or buy from them online.
Between March and April of 2020, I sourced info via manual research and a crowdsourced Google Sheet, and had data on hundreds of local businesses. At its peak, the site was getting about 6,000 monthly page views. I don't have a way of tracking how much money it generated for the businesses.
I have since shut down the project.
I'm Brian. For work, I build automations to remove manual, repetitive work from business operations. I also maintain a community site which helps people find DC Tech Jobs.
