Anything else you feel like might be interesting for me to know about you during all this?) on 1 917 540 5294. Clearly, in the immense nature of the numbers thing, I won’t get to answer to everyone, and I may not even see yours (apologies in advance if that happens) but I will try to compile some database of fans and friends to see if there are easy ways to connect and help each other in the future. If I am completely overwhelmed by this and it is a disaster I will keep you posted,” Harbour wrote.

I have this number, this phone number that you can text me at with this app, this community app,” Harbour states in his video. “I want you to text me some information about yourself. Are you a teacher? Are you a writer just sitting at your desk, everything’s fine, you work from home. You work from Amazon? Are you a nurse? Are you a doctor? Some famous politician? I may want to get people together, fans and friends, and sort of do some projects together.” You can check out the full video below.
