The Clapping Clock

As the coronavirus spread across the globe, something beautiful started happening. Communities all over the world came together to applaud those who take care of us.

But the frontline workers we clapped for were often too busy working or recuperating to stop and listen.

So we built the Clapping Clocka place for frontline workers to come, at any time, to hear the applause meant for them.

Providing a lift to those who need it most, the Clapping Clock curates celebrations from different cities around the world, every day.

 With the Clapping Clock, a local round of applause can reach a global audience and a few minutes of clapping can last forever.

Visit to hear the latest rounds of applause.
