Lovely parents,

We are working on a new function at our new website, and I am hoping to get some of you to help me test it out?

There is a chat button on the lower right of our new site: http://www.feast-ed.org

If you would stop by and chat with me for a few minutes, it would be a great help. I need many sets of eyes, and to see what happens with multiple visitors, and hey: if you have a question for us we're happy to answer it!

Then post here with your impressions, screenshots, ideas, and concerns?

I hung out for about 10 minutes and didn't get any contact. It is about 2pm EST if you need that info.  It seems like it will be a good feature once it is up and running!

Just tried now and spoke with Laura. Looks like it could be a really good tool if there are enough people to respond. It is another way of communicating in what at times can be a lonely world.

I also tried and had a chat with Laura. It took about 20 minutes. I can see it could be really helpful she is still working on it.

Thank you, everyone! Your help was invaluable in getting the kinks out of the new feature. The chat will be available during office hours at headquarters for a while, and hope to expand to more hours as we gain volunteers and momentum! Stop by with any questions you have on finding resources and support!
