Justidate is a bit of a social experiment that was born out of a few observations:

  • The “singles” business is a multi-billion dollar industry, with a good chunk of the market filled by big for-profit romance corporations;
  • Many of the singles I know are community minded, and want to connect with others who share similar values; and
  • It can sometimes be more difficult for social justice organizations to fundraise as they cannot get charitable status if they engage in political advocacy.

Thus, I thought that there could be a great opportunity to bring together like-minded people while raising money for worthy causes.

So far, we are off to a great start!  We have had wonderful people turn out to our events, made a ton of matches, benefited from the work of a committed group of generous volunteers, and raised a few thousand dollars for worthy causes.
