Care2.com Launches Political Network for Its 8 Million Members

"Care2 Election08" Delivers Substantive Information on Political and Policy Issues

REDWOOD CITY, CA--(Marketwire - December 11, 2007) - Care2.com, the largest online community of socially conscious-consumers, has launched "Care2 Election08" Channel (http://www.care2.com/politics) for its 8 million members to access extensive information about the issues that matter to them and to provide a forum for Care2's 350 non-profit partners to feature their expertise and policy prescriptions about the challenges America faces. Care2 is the first and only organization to aggregate information on candidates and issues from non-profits and provide editorial through the Care2008 blog.

The Care2 Election08 channel is a site that reflects the interests of Care2 members and showcases the expertise of Care2's non-profit partners. "Issues that Matter" features custom RSS feeds that combine top news stories of the day and information from top non-profits addressing six core issues based on Care2 members' preferences. Care2's Election08 channel will also be developing a blog next week that will feature non-profit experts and their election year efforts to educate voters about the choices we face, as well as a topical perspective on the day's news. Election08 also provides an opportunity for members to learn about the presidential candidates and will ultimately provide information on all Congressional races and gubernatorial races.

The Election08 Channel also offers opportunities for Care2 members to use the full suite of Care2's extensive toolset in the context of the issues they care about. (i.e. the Care2 News Network, Care2 Discussion groups, petitions, multimedia, online polls, etc.)
