ATLANTA--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Shofur, the technology-based marketplace for private bus reservations, announced today that the company will donate $150 to one of three women’s charities for every bus booked to the Women’s March on Washington taking place January 21, 2017.
When renting a bus, customers will have the option to choose which charity Shofur will donate to including Planned Parenthood, Global Fund for Women or The American Association of University Women (AAUW). When customers choose Planned Parenthood as their charity, the company will donate in the name of Mike Pence.
Shofur CEO Armir Harris has set a goal of 4,500 bus rentals (260,000 passengers) for the event. If the goal is met, Shofur will donate $1 million to the charity most selected by customers, in addition to the initial $150 donation.
“As a political refugee who was raised by a single mother, this cause stands dear to my heart. I look forward to the opportunity to helping many form travel plans to get to Washington,” said Harris.
The all inclusive march, organized by a national third party, will take place in Washington D.C. in front of the Lincoln Memorial. The event will begin at 10 a.m. and target equality for women and other marginalized groups. Participants are encouraged to organize and crowdsource at the state level.
“I foresee this event bringing together a larger crowd than any other modern political event, due to the millions of people coming together to advocate for equality in our country,” said Harris.
Shofur is asking all attendees to place rental reservations as soon as possible to ensure availability. Buses and coaches can be reserved for groups of any size in over 100 cities nationwide. Agents are available 24/7.
The company, which has no official affiliation with the event, is proud to aid millions of people in attending this historic event, while also supporting a charity of their choice.
