ABOUT RESQWALK

Created by the team at ResQthreads, ResQwalk is an iOS mobile app that enables animal lovers to raise money for animal rescues and shelters in the United States and Canada every time they go for a walk. Each week ResQwalk announces a donation pool (e.g. $2,500) and in order for a rescue to receive donations from the pool, its supporters simply need to check-in to the app when they go for a walk (with a dog, alone, or with a friend). Each walker's distance is recorded and added to the rescue's weekly sum. At the end of the week donations are paid out to the rescues proportionally to the total distance walked.

Other cool features of the app include: prizes at the end of each walk, a news section with pet related content, a shop section with product deals and offers, and profile pages for users and rescues to track both miles walked and dollars raised. 


WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT

We have interest from corporate sponsors but, before they will fund our weekly donation pools, we first need to prove that people like YOU want to walk for homeless animals!

Our goal is to raise $20,000 to fund the initial donation pools. This way we will be able to run the app for 2 months, with fully funded donation pools, and prove that people want to walk in support of homeless animals.

*You can see the list of over 300 signed up rescues here, and if you don’t see your favorite rescue have them apply here.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Q: When will ResQwalk be available for download in the App Store?

A: The app will be available in the app store at the conclusion of the Indiegogo campaign. 

Q: I want to purchase a t-shirt / hoodie. How do I indicate my size?

A: At the conclusion of the Indiegogo campaign we will contact you to confirm your shipping details and to have you choose your t-shirt / hoodie size. 

Q: When will I get my order?

A: All of the products will be produced at the conclusion of the Indiegogo campaign.

We will keep you posted along the way to let you know how everything is going!

Q: What's the story behind ResQwalk?

A: Bailey Schroeder and Susan Bing met in NYC in the winter of 2011. Bonding over their mutual love for animals, the two would often brainstorm about what they could do together to help animals in need. Many years and brainstorming sessions later, the idea for ResQwalk started to take shape. Utilizing Bailey's background in finance, marketing and her years of working directly with animal rescues, and combining it with Susan's over 20 years experience in product development, graphic design, and running the successful pet boutique Trixie and Peanut, the two knew ResQwalk was what they had been looking for and the perfect way to leverage both of their skills to help animals everywhere. 

Q: Why will users love ResQwalk?

A: We believe users will love the ResQwalk app because:

  • They have an opportunity to raise money to help animals, without spending money. 
  • At the end of each walk, the user gets a reward. 
  • It's fun perusing the news and deals in the shop section of the app.

Q: Why will animal rescues love ResQwalk?

A: We believe animal rescues will love the ResQwalk app because:

  • They can tell their supporters about a fundraising opportunity that doesn't require them to spend money. 
  • In the Shop section, the app presents a daily opportunity for each rescue's supporters to purchase items from ResQthreads.com (at a discount) that benefit the rescue.
Q: Why would a company want to sponsor the donation pools?


A: In addition to just being fine corporate citizens, we believe companies will want to sponsor the ResQwalk app because:

  • Positive Brand Association: The sponsor's logo will appear on the start, pause and finished walk screens.
  • Product Promotion: Coupons for the sponsor's products will appear in the Shop section of the app.

Q: What are your stretch goals?

A: If we are lucky enough to hit our $20,000 goal, let us first say THANK YOU! Any money we raise up to $50,000 will be used to fund future donation pools. Any money we raise beyond $50,000 will be used to develop our Android app and add enhancements. 

Q: I have additional questions, who should I contact?

A: Please send us any other specific questions to: info@resqthreads.com
