SFUSD Parents: Win $1000 for your school PTA






At KangaDo, we strive to make life easier for busy parents. One way is by helping parents share the trip to school. Whether it’s walking, biking, or carpooling to school, school pooling is fun and beneficial for kids, and saves time and stress for busy parents.

From finding carpool partners to organizing a school pool group event, KangaDo makes setting up school pools easy:

  • Join school or neighborhood groups to find families nearby
  • Easy to use messaging and quick request forms help turn conversation into firm plans for school pooling all-year-round
  • Need a last minute pick up? Post a message and your friends will be instantly notified!
  • Get automatic reminders and sync schedule to calendar
  • Only connect and post requests to parents you know and trust

In honor of International Walk To School Day on Wednesday, October 8th, 2014, KangaDo is awarding a $1000 PTA prize to help San Francisco Unified School District (SFUSD) families start school pooling!

The SFUSD school with the highest percentage of families who have downloaded KangaDo app will win the grand prize.
