Donate a prize to the monthly raffle

Each time a participant checks-in their commute, they are entered into a drawing for the monthly raffle. The raffle prizes are generously given to us by various organizations and we are always welcoming raffle donations from businesses local to our participants.

Past raffle items have included athletic/walking shoes, Charlie subway cards, Ferry tickets, Yoga classes, theater tickets etc.


We will promote your organization with our thousands of participants, media, and site visitors. All donations are tax deductible. 

Reward Commuters with Charity Donations
