PLEDGE FOR LOVE – DATE MY KICKSTARTS 2ND CROWDFUND CAMPAIGN
Date My aims to place faith in stranger’s belief of matchmaking
Date My is no ordinary dating website. Unlike most online dating sites created for single people, Date My is designed for Matchmakers. The site takes the pain out of online dating by letting Matchmakers set up their single parents, friends, siblings and even co-workers on the platform.
After a successful crowdfunding campaign last year, Date My soft launched in November 2014 and has been growing organically ever since, with great press and customer testimonials. But they are now reaching out for a second time with a Kickstarter campaign to help them grow across the UK.
Founder Rachael Wardle says “With the crowds help we want to spread the word about Date My across the UK so that more people know they can help someone they care about find love. It’s going to be a lot harder this time round, as this is our second crowdfunding campaign. We need to place faith in strangers to believe in Date My.”
The funds from the project will help Date My Kick Start a marketing campaign, develop an APP and help spread awareness of the brand across the UK. Date My is aiming to raise £25,000 from backers all over the world.
Rachael Wardle says “We need to raise a lot more then £25,000, but the funds from this Kickstarter will help us start a marketing campaign. Our plans are to build Date My into an APP, and grow on an international scale. We want to spread the love on a global level!”
On a shoestring budget, Date My has already won the hearts of many, with warming profiles added by daughters, sons, sisters, dads and so on. One Matchmaker on Date My says, “When I saw Date My I signed up my mum straight away. I think the reason she agreed is that putting herself out there is essentially all on my side. I get to do the hard part and hopefully she gets to met someone as fantastic as she is.”
Backers can pledge as little as £5.00 and get Date My’s love book as a reward, which is full of dating advice from experts, survival tips and heart warming stories. If they can stretch to £20.00 they’ll get 2 tickets to a cinema-screening event in London, and if they’re feeling generous they can get a photo shoot and personal styling for a date!
