This site,, is mySociety's next project. We're a charitable organisation which builds sites like , 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?

This pledge is now closed, as its deadline has passed.
