see how you change the world
Peoria Heights, IL (PRWEB) November 18, 2014
Callitics is a game where democracy wins. The game allows players to create calls on political causes close to their heart. The calls spread virally on social media. Instead of trying to get people to sign online petitions, you ask them to make a call. The user with the most calls made wins.
Of course, calling your elected officials is not the most salacious of contests. "We're paying people to call their government in interesting and necessary ways," explains Callitics founder, Tom Howard.
The app enables issue specific calls targeted at any level of government. It has databases of the state and national government so that users can focus on the issue behind their call and getting their goal achieved.
"People know what they want changed and who they need to contact," says Howard. The problem is when spreading that call to a wider net of people. The app focuses the lobbying process. Callitics hopes that the $100.00 prize for first place will get an influx of users to the new political influence platform.
"The contest is quite simple, call your elected leaders and win money," says Howard. People will be more engaged and heard in the political process if they contact those in power. The Callitics smartphone app enables these calls and rewards people for making them.
