Connecting local teen helpers to New Canaan families
Launching Summer 2020
As a local New Canaan mother and business owner raising kids in these unprecedented times, I know how hard it is to get it all done while feeling confident that my choices will keep my family safe. We still need easy ways to tackle our daily goals (and hopefully maintain our sanity).
I've also watched my kids and our friends' kids lose summer job opportunities, though they remain eager to work., A few of them drive, so I wondered how I could use my website and scheduling app to help them secure local summer work in New Canaan. Meet Book'd.
In order to test the waters, I am intentionally starting small. The helpers are my own children and the children of our closest friends, all of whom live in New Canaan, attend school here, and have an interest in helping local families. With their varying schedules, I have allowed for customized availability.
Book'd wants to make it easy for families in New Canaan to get a little help, right when they need it..
Clients will log on to the calendar, book an errand or hour of (outdoor) babysitting, and get back to their lives. Oh, and you'll get an extra hour or two in your day. It's a win win.
The only role of Book'd is to help my favorite kids book summer work. We are a scheduling source only. We receive no money from the kids for offering this service. Each helper will handle compensation directly with the person that they help. That's it.
If you need help with something and you don't see it listed, just let us know. We're here to help.
