2016 has been weird. From Kanye’s breakdown to the Damn Daniel phenomenon, to the shock of Brexit and a pretty gnarly American Election, it’s easy to feel like the world is out of control – and there’s not much we can do to help. But when opportunities arise that allow us to make a mark on history – we have to take them. Until of course, you realize you can’t get to those life-changing historical moments because you don’t have a ride.
Skedaddle is a crowdsource mass transit system that liberates people from limited transportation options. Through the website or app, a user can search for rides going to similar destinations and hop on that ride, or create a new ride with a group of friends. Then, everyone who has joined that ride meets at the pickup spot and boards the professionally driven vehicle and heads off to their destination! It a great way to travel long distances, especially with a group of friends. Heading to the beach? Skedaddle. Want to go skiing? Skedaddle. Trying to surprise your mom for her birthday a few hours away? Skedaddle.
Skedaddle wants to help activate women across the country to stand up for their rights for the Women’s March on Washington. On January 21, 2017, the day after the presidential inauguration, millions of women and men in support of women’s rights are planning on flooding the streets of Washington D.C. to let people know that the women of this country will not be ignored and that “women’s rights are human rights”. This nonviolent event will be a notable piece on U.S. history and you and your girlfriends can be a part of it with the help of Skedaddle!
There are dozens of Skedaddle rides across the nation that you can join to get to the march and be a part of history. It doesn’t matter if you live on the west coast, New England, Florida, or anywhere in between Skedaddle has rides all over the country headed to DC on the weekend of the march. And if you can’t find one that works with your location or schedule, you and your friends can start a new ride.
If you use the code LALA15 you get $15 off your ride to the march. Skedaddle is a great way to travel long distances safely, cheaply, and without the hassle of renting a car. And best of all, they want you to make a difference and are willing to help you do so! So grab your girlfriends (and your equal rights supporting male friends) and jump on a Skedaddle ride today.
