A new app developed by a group of Princeton graduates, called the Uber of emotional support, is officially available for download.
Happy connects people to compassionate listeners who have been vetted by the company to provide support at any given time. The roughly 2,500 “happy givers” can talk you through life’s everyday stresses in addition to more intense struggles.
“You can call anytime and talk about whatever you want, and it’s anonymous, intelligent (algorithm-based matching) and affordable,” shared co-founder Jeremy Fischbach.
Fischbach says Happy is a “for the people, by the people” idea that stemmed from a rough patch he was going through. When his friends were unreachable, he found comfort in talking to the friendly faces at the New Orleans coffee shop Pulp & Grind.
