Helping communities thrive is at the core of GetUpside’s mission, and communities thrive when everyone participates. This election cycle, we launched our first ever initiative to help users get to the polls.
In just 2.5 weeks, over 75,000 GetUpside users from 47 states emailed to let us know they made it to the polls, with GetUpside’s help! Wow. Being able to help users get more value for their dollar is always our goal. But being able to help users directly impact their communities by getting to the polls to participate in democracy and make their voices heard, is something we’re particularly proud of.
Each and every one of the 75,000 emails received from users is confirmation we did exactly that. Here’s what some of those user emails said:
Over the last two months, every member of the GetUpside team has worked to make participation in our election more accessible to every member of the GetUpside community. We also took on a number of projects internally to do our part as individuals. You can read more about those initiatives in a previous post— in the end, with our efforts we:
>> Encouraged others to vote by partnering with Vote Forward,
>> Volunteered at the polls with Power to the Polls, and
>> Made time to vote ourselves!
We are thrilled about our users’ dedication to their communities, and humbled by the opportunity to help them participate in democracy.
