Unlimited Weekly Metro Card Giveaway for teen parents in NYC
It's outrageous and makes getting around the city even more inaccessible for people who need it.
About a month ago I remembered that not too long ago Leilani and I would walk for blocks and blocks because I didn't have enough money on my metro card to swipe us to get to where we were going AND a swipe to get home.
I'm talking BLOCKS sometimes 30 or more.
The truth is that not I am very fortunate to no longer HAVE to do this and realized that while I could get mad and do nothing that I would instead get mad and do something about it.
From now until September I will be giving away ONE unlimited weekly metro card a month to a mother 20 and younger in need of one.
In order to qualify:
- You need to be 20 and younger
- A parent
- Live in one of the 5 boroughs
- Be able to meet up in person to receive the metro card
- Fill out the form / Bit.ly/TMNYCMetrocard
