A letter and donation from Fred and Linda - you are why we built Votetocracy
Our team went to a political author's book signing. We didn't go to meet the author. Instead, we knew the audience would be filled with concerned Americans so we went to meet people and get feedback on Votetocracy. The line outside was long. Hundreds of people if not a thousand waited. So I walked the line and spoke to groups of 3-5 people at a time. The response we got was amazing. Most were in pleasant shock that they could actually vote on bills in Congress. One couple in particular was so receptive they came up to me later on and offered to make a (unsolicited) donation to the project. A couple of weeks later we received a handwritten letter from Fred and Linda (I'll keep their last name private).
Fred and Linda expressed concern over America's future. They are small business owners and parents. They went on to describe the issues they see facing America. But this post is not to debate specific issues. Instead, it is to point out that Americans care. This couple cared enough that they went out of their way to donate $100 to a person they'd met once. Because, as they stated, "It is nice to see someone trying to do something about it" they felt compelled to help that effort along.
Fred and Linda went on to say they felt Votetocracy is on the right track. I just wanted to publicly thank Fred and Linda and all the other members that have email us. Every single email we get encourages us tremendously. Please keep them coming.
