New App Keeps Kids & Families Connected

Due to growing concerns and quarantines over the COVID-19 Pandemic, almost a billion children around the world have been dismissed from school, are missing friends, and are unable to see their extended families. 

Caribu, the family-activity video-calling app, is helping bridge the gap created by social distancing and self-isolation during this tumultuous time. Now, AT&T is helping Caribu keep families connected and engaged by funding 60 days of FREE unlimited access of Caribu! 

“Kids are feeling the effects of the outbreak, but don’t always understand why grandma can’t come visit, why the special family spring break trip has been canceled, or why they’re out of school for weeks,” said Caribu CEO and Co-Founder Max Tuchman. “Everything we do is about creating more meaningful connections, and that’s what we think is most important right now–keeping families connected in the most engaging way. We’re like Zoom for kids!”

With Caribu, kids can create special moments with their loved ones and friends by going on a virtual playdate where they can read books from an extensive library of popular titles, play games, and even color together in a video-call. Caribu is a way to stay connected and build memories year-round but especially during a time where millions of families are under self-quarantine.
