On November 9, the 511NY Rideshare team launched our first-ever Smart Travel Badge Drive with the goal of turning 511NY Rideshare member actions into donations to local community organizations.
We encouraged our members to participate by earning Community Mobilization badges on their profiles for taking actions like completing their profile, becoming a Clean Air NY Advocate, or planning a transit trip.
For each badge our members earned, 511NY Rideshare partner organizations donated to local community groups. Our members earned 220 badges across the two-week drive, which allowed us to facilitate donations of:
“Thank you for the socks donation. The children will love them!”
– Children’s Aid NYC
"[Thank you for the Matzo Project donation,] offering high-quality and tasty donated products to our emergency food network, helping thousands of individuals and families across New York City."
- The Met Council
"Thank you so much [for the Raw Rev energy bars,] our recipients really enjoyed them."
- The Connected Chef
Thank you again for your participation in the Smart Travel Badge Drive - the entire 511NY Rideshare team looks forward to hosting more similar initiatives!
