A web app and safe space for overcoming emotional pain. Share unfiltered feelings anonymously with the community without fear of judgement or shaming.

Our Vision.

To provide anyone everywhere with a safe space to be vulnerable, acknowledge and process their emotional pain.

How we came up with the idea.

Michele: The idea came from my battle with PTSD and my inability to function in everyday life. Bren Brown's TedTalk: The Power of Vulnerability inspired the thought that I needed a place where I could be open and vulnerable without the fear of shame and judgment. I was unable to talk about the trauma I had experienced, and wanted to just be able to send it into cyberspace without anyone saying anything back. Just to be seen.

What we accomplished in 72 hours.

We've launched a live app! And in under 12 hours (purely by word of mouth) we've received 40 shares and multiple requests to test our app via testflight.
