"I will travel up to Shrewsbury, explain how PledgeBank can help you, and buy everyone who shows up a drink but only if 10 Shropshire residents will come along for a chat."

This site, PledgeBank.com, is mySociety's next project. We're a charitable organisation which builds sites like www.writetothem.com , and we've just started field-testing PledgeBank.
I'd like to come up to Shrewsbury to discuss the wide range of situations where PledgeBank can be of use. Whether you want to set up a residents' association, organise a school play, arrange a kickabout, or motivate opposition to a local planning proposal, PledgeBank can help you.
We've designed PledgeBank to tackle the most common problem of local community websites - you never bump into your neighbours on the internet. By combining SMS automatically-generated flyers for each pledge, we can help your idea really spread through your local area.
All that I want in return is to meet some people who might be able to make use of PledgeBank in their own local areas. Fancy a pint?
