How does it work?
A coordinator (family member or close friend) completes a brief registration process, and a "Team website" is created. In just a few minutes, the WhatFriendsDo.com webtool will help you customize a Team website that can be used to:
Coordinate schedules for meals, childcare, errands and other needs.
Create a Guestbook
Provide a guestbook for messages to your friend.
Provide information updates via your own Team blog.
Post photos to keep your Team inspired.
