McLean, Virginia (PRWEB) February 16, 2016
ID.me, the leading digital identity gateway, is proud to announce a new partnership with Thrive Market, a membership-based e-commerce platform offering best-selling natural and organic products for less.
“Healthy eating is key to a great quality of life and long lifespan, but eating right can be challenging for many low-income households,” said ID.me CEO Blake Hall. “We’re excited to be partners with Thrive Market to help offer these families a chance to enjoy delicious and healthy products at wholesale prices.”
Healthy living in America is too hard for too many people. Forty-nine million Americans experience food insecurity, 23 million Americans still live in "food deserts," and nearly 80 percent of low-income families resort to buying unhealthy food to make ends meet.
Thrive Market is on a mission to change these statistics and to make healthy and organic foods and products affordable for every American family, with ID.me’s help. For $60/year, Thrive Market members get access to their favorite natural snacks, supplements, home, beauty, and baby products at 30 to 50% off retail, shipped directly to their door (at no charge for orders over $49). For every paid Thrive Market membership, the healthy living company donates a no-cost membership to someone in need. For low-income families, students, teachers, veterans, and first responders, that membership means free and valuable access to the highest quality natural staples, wholesome snacks, home products and kid favorites at lower prices.
"We're excited to partner with ID.me to provide teachers, students, veterans and first responders with free memberships to Thrive Market,” said Gunnar Lovelace, CEO and co-founder of Thrive Market. “With ID.me's advanced technology, we will be able to immediately verify and provide no-cost access to the highest quality wholesome products to so many people. That's real impact!"
ID.me is verifying the group status and individual identity for veterans and their families, as well as teachers, students and first responders. Members of those groups can go http://www.thrivemarket.com/givingapp to sign up for a no-cost membership. Using ID.me technology, Thrive Market can easily confirm if the applicant is eligible. Low-income individuals who aren’t a member of any category can still qualify – to be considered for a no-cost membership, simply fill out a questionnaire online.
ID.me enables consumers to efficiently prove their identity online while controlling how their personal data is shared. Founded by two Army Rangers, ID.me verifies consumer identity and group status in real-time in order to allow organizations providing exclusive promotions or benefits online to do so without fear of fraud.
