I say this a lot and sometimes people make fun, but it is true that even in this crazy pandemic there are some good things coming out of it.
This latest example is a from group called the Fixit Clinic that helps people repair their old appliances and electronics instead of throwing them out. They had to stop holding events when the pandemic hit. Instead, like most companies did they started doing classes on Zoom. Now this has made it so they’re reaching more people than ever. What’s really interesting is that they are actually connecting with people on a more personal level beyond just fixing their stuff. Sometimes helping them with life problems too. Or just forming a friendly connection. A guy named Peter Mui started the whole thing, and says it’s about more than just fixing appliances and electronics now.
