We are alarmed at the current state of affairs and wanted to figure out something we could do to help. Being web and mobile developers we decided we could try and tackle the issue of Donald and his tweeting.
We asked ourselves, "If someone won't stop doing something negative, is there a way to turn it into a positive?". We decided that in this situation we could do something.
So we created this to allow people to pledge money per tweet to the ACLU. Every time Donald tweets, we respond to him letting him know how much each tweet is worth. We charge people at the beginning of the month for the previous month's tweets and we make it easy to change your mind at any time.
We want to help. Please feel free to reach out to us and ask any questions:
Why the ACLU?
The ACLU does a lot of good across a multitude of areas. We know that there are many people and problems that need attention. An organization like the ACLU that deals across the board seemed like the best choice.
Is this legit? Will the money be going to the ACLU?
Absolutely! We will be giving your donated amount to the ACLU minus the fees that it costs us to process the payment and minus our fees which we use to keep this going. The fees are 10% and of that 10% we are paying for the payment processor as well as upkeep costs. 90% goes to the ACLU.
Is it secure? Should I really be giving you my credit card information?
Security is important to us and to you! We do not store your credit card details. We use a third party called Stripe, who is used by companies such as BestBuy, Adidas, Saks Fifth Avenue and many other large companies. So we are as safe as if you buy from any of these companies online.
Can I change my mind?
Always! You can come back to your dashboard at any time to put a cap on how much you will be charged per month. You can also change how much you are pledging at any time.
How often do I get charged?
You will get charged every month for the previous months tweets. If you ever have a problem, let us know.
Can I get a refund?
If you were double charged? Of course. However, generally we do not offer refunds for donations to an organization. If you no longer want to give, you can cancel your account in your dashboard.
Are my pledges tax deductible?
Unfortunately they are not at this time. However, if this project garners enough support we are looking forward to putting infrastructure in place that would enable your 90% to be tax deductible.
Update! After Trump's twitter account officially blocked us we created a different account to monitor his tweets and no longer respond to them so as not to draw attention to that account. But we are back! Stay tuned for even more updates!
