CHICAGO, Feb. 15, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Over the past few months many Chime families have become more involved in their communities: attending marches, joining activist groups, even running for political office. And we know that these things are hard to do with the kids in tow.
To support families and communities who are engaging in positive activism, Chime is donating $25 plus 10% of the total transaction to the ACLU for every new family who books a sitter with Chime in February.
"Many families are telling us that booking Chime babysitters has made it easier to get involved," says Chime Chief Marketing Officer Kriston Rucker. "We believe in the power of coming together as a community, and we want to support parents who are finding the time to make a difference."
"Getting involved in my community has become more important than ever," says Chicago-area parent, Louisa Fitzgerald. "Chime has given me the flexibility to find a trustworthy babysitter on relatively short notice. Over the last few weeks I was able to attend a march and a meet and greet with local political candidates. Since learning about the ACLU donation, it feels good knowing Chime is aligned with my values. Continuing to book a sitter through Chime is helping me personally and contributing to a greater cause."
To make a booking, visit www.hellochime.com/aclu. First time users will receive $50 in credits (covering around 3 hours of babysitting) and Chime will donate $25 and 10% of the babysitting transaction to the ACLU.
