Quick Quotes was created by two teenagers, Becca and Talia, who were concerned about increasing social isolation and emotional stress during the Covid-19 pandemic. Inspired by their own close relationships with their grandparents, and with the support of ETA, they decided to start a free weekly email featuring an uplifting quote and thought-provoking question. Two years and 100+ emails later, they’ve created a positive space and a bright spot in the week for their growing group of subscribers.
The teens want to make their community a better place for all residents: “We hope to improve the lives of not only seniors, but everyone who signs up!” As founders Becca and Talia start their senior year of high school, they hope to expand the Quick Quotes project as far as possible.
