Tech Talk: Use Shukran to Tip your Fave Creatives

Creatives/artists have arguably been some of the most impacted workers by the loss of human communion since COVID-19. The bans on public gatherings and travel restrictions (both local and international), alongside night time curfews, social distancing measures, closure of  public spaces, and restrictions on movement, have radically changed social and economic interactions for creatives in the country.

Stand up comedians, musicians, heck, even exotic dancers have had to come up with alternative ways to entertain their fans.  According to a report by HEVA fund, 88% of creatives who took  part in their Impact of COVID-19 on Creative and Cultural Industry survey witnessed a decrease in incomes over the Q1 2020 as a result of the pandemic. 

Creatives have offered an escape for all of us during these surreal times. They’ve uploaded some great entertaining videos on various digital platforms and for the most part, they’ve offered their time and talent for free.

Wouldn’t it be nice if we could show our appreciation by virtually tipping them? Well, you can!
