With countless communities and countries around the world entering lockdown and social distancing to combat the Covid-19 pandemic, the world is at present a very different place.

StayHomeSounds knows that – along with sounds – everyone has their own story to tell. They’re inviting anyone around the world to send them a sound recording from wherever YOU are, and tell them a little about how things are wherever you live.
You can listen to the sounds and read the stories so far, too!
