RightRides For Women's Safety Inc
May 19, 2010
When Right Rides first started out I was at a point in my life where I couldn't really afford the luxury of taking cab rides home late at night. I was so thankful to have Right Rides to help get me home safely. I'd much rather pay for the service by giving of my own time, so I started volunteering for Right Rides too. I try to put in a shift for every time I utilize the service. There are so many people -- women, gay, gender queer, and beyond -- who can benefit from Right Rides, I just hope that Right Rides can continue to garner the added volunteer power to help more people. The system works great when there are enough people there to support it.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
getting myself home safely without spending money I cannot always afford on cabs. Also raising awareness for the risks to women, LGBTQ and gender queer individuals traveling alone late at night.
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
friendly and outgoing.
