Coronavirus free services

For the coronavirus pandemic I have heard of companies creating free access to their resources.

For instance.

Free audio books for kids on audible

https://stories.audible.com/start-listen


Does anyone know of other resources?

DownDog yoga and fitness apps free until 1st April, in the app stores


Due to the current outbreak, many people are avoiding gathering in large groups, including at yoga studios and other fitness spaces. We believe that stressful times like these are precisely when people need wellness practices the most, and we are committed to doing our part to help out.

So that anyone who wants to practice at home can do so, we are making all of our apps - Down Dog, Yoga for Beginners, HIIT, Barre, and 7 Minute Workout - completely free until April 1st.

In response to the many school closures taking place, we are also offering free access until July 1st for all students and teachers (K-12 and college). To access the free school membership, please register your school's domain by visiting downdogapp.com/schools.

We hope that everyone will stay healthy and safe in these uncertain times.

With love,
The Down Dog Team

Reading Eggs makes learning to read interesting and engaging for kids, with great online reading games and activities.

And it really works!

Children love the games, songs, golden eggs and other rewards which, along with feeling proud of their reading, really motivate children to keep exploring and learning.


It's easy to start your free 30 days’ access:
1. Log into your family dashboard here
2. Click on 'My Account' in the top menu and select 'Redeem Promo Code'
3. Enter the code EDM900UK in the box and click 'Redeem'
4. Select your child.
