Cat Facts →
Let's make voting hard to ignore and easy to do. Sign your friends up to receive anonymous texts about Biden or Trump - to unsubscribe, they'll need to register to vote.
I made an app that went viral back in 2014 called Cat Facts. It's a harmless prank app that sends your friends anonymous texts about cats. And while it's something I'm proud of, I had always wished it had a more positive impact.
I've been bothered by the voter turnout numbers from 2016 and from hearing the misconception that registering to vote is hard. So to try to repurpose Cat Facts into something more positive, I built PrankToVote.org. This service utilizes a lot of the functionality built for Cat Facts, but with the goal of increasing voting awareness.
If you sign your friend up, they'll need to go to the PrankToVote.org website which has resources to educate on just how easy it is to register. I give away additional free "targets" to try and increase the spread. With every one person that starts sending, they'll on average send to three more people.

I have hundreds of numbers that I own and it the service sends texts to your friends from one of those numbers. They won't be able to tell where the facts are coming from (and it has no connection to the person sending the facts).
As you send facts, your friends might respond with things like "Who is this?" or "Unsubscribe!". You'll be able to see everything they respond with right on the website.
The lowest tier is $2. If you buy that, you can send to one other friend for free.
The middle tier is $5. If you buy that, you can send to three other friend for free.
The highest tier is $12. If you buy that, you can send to six other friend for free.
You can send both Trump Facts OR Biden Facts. If you're not using PrankToVote, you can use Cat Facts, Dog Facts, Sloth Facts, and Nic Cage Facts.
Sending text messages unfortunately isn't free. To balance this out, I make it so every purchase comes with more people to send to for free. I'm also always happy to give out promo codes if you email to email@example.com.
For legal reasons, if a person doesn't want to be receiving texts/emails/etc, they need to have an option to opt-out. A majority of recipients never actually unsubscribe.
They're a collection of facts from all over the internet. Mostly from miscellanious articles on "facts about Trump". Collecting the facts takes about 3 hours per person.
There are about 100 facts for each fact type.
