There were moments when I thought we weren’t going to make it…but the last few days saw an incredible push from our supporters to bring us way over the finish line – our aim was for £20,000 and we made a whopping £23,551. http://www.crowdfunder.co.uk/voteforpolicies
We’ve had such amazing support for our campaign since we began and now the work begins to bring back Vote for Policies for 2015, fully mobile friendly, with better design and capability to handle large traffic.
We’ll also be adding Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland to the survey and organising a marketing campaign to reach an ambitious but potentially game-changing 5 million people. Our aim is to help voters really engage with what parties promise to do, as a first step towards holding politicians to account. Step 1 is an engaged electorate – step 2 is to develop a service that tracks the actions of our elected government against their election promises.
Thank you to everyone who supported the campaign. The short film below shows me explaining what we’ll do with the money and why it’s so important.
