Y-USA’s Zoe for President Campaigns to Rattle the Vote
National non-profit encourages voting with customizable and shareable video generator
CHICAGO (November 3, 2016) — In the final days before the 2016 election, YMCA of the USA (Y-USA) is looking to encourage everyone to get out and vote as a part of the Zoe for President campaign, and has launched a social media video generator to encourage voter participation. Zoe’s Rattle the Vote video generator gives users the opportunity to create video messages from Zoe, the Y’s adorable 1-year-old campaigner for all kids that can be shared with friends and family on social media channels.
Creating a customized Zoe video is an easy three-step process. It starts with visiting Zoe’s campaign website ZoeForPresident.net and inserting a friend or family member’s name. Then the videos can be shared via social media channels. There are four engaging videos to choose from, including one that has Zoe promising to eat all her broccoli if the recipient votes. The Rattle the Vote social media video generator enables people to send customizable videos now through Election Day, Tuesday, November 8.
The Zoe for President campaign highlights the potential the Y sees in all kids to grow up and change the world if they’re nurtured properly and supported along the way. With the help of Y programs like academic enrichment, mentoring, college readiness, job training and more, kids have the opportunity to grow, to succeed, and one day, maybe even become president.
This program complements the recently announced Zoe’s Kids Day Out initiative that many Ys across the country are participating in on November 8. Zoe’s Kids Day Out ensures parents and caregivers can vote by providing a fun and safe alternative to taking their kids to the polls. Details about Election Day child care services including availability, registration requirements and associated costs vary and can be provided by contacting local Ys ymca.net/find-your-y.
