Chummy, an urban social network startup headquartered in Los Angeles, today announced the launch of its mobile app in Seattle and company’s new branch office in Shoreline. Chummy social app connects people who need help with those who are nearby and ready to lend a hand. After a year of beta-testing, the app’s ecosystem of kindness has attracted more than 62,000 users and now is available for iPhone and Android platforms.
“Gone are the days when we borrowed a cup of sugar from a neighbor, but we’re bringing back the power of human kindness,” explained Anton Zapolskyi, CEO and cofounder of Chummy. “Like the Bat Signal in the real world, we unite caring individuals who enjoy paying it forward and make the world a better place. Literally.”
Federal studies of recent years show that 1 in 4 Americans age 16 and over officially volunteer, and 3 in 5 helped their neighbors last year. Those 62.6 million and 138 million, respectively, of kind people today make America the most responsive and compassionate nation in the world.
Chummy’s mission is as exalted as it is idealistic – to compound those good people together on our social ecosystem and enhance daily beneficial interactions between them. So that every Chummy user has real friendly help for any life-issues and can easily pay it forward. As more good people in the city join, the whole united community of goodwill should beget enough power to warm the hearts of cities. One by one, starting from Seattle – one of the five America’s most socially responsible big cities (according Conscious Consumer Spending Index 2017).
