A Moment of Appreciation: Thank You For Choosing Prontopia

April 22nd, 2020 by Prontopia

As Howard Zinn once said, “Small acts when multiplied by millions can transform the world.” As we head into the umpteenth week of the global pandemic, Prontopia continues to do its best to assist as many people in need as possible. In order to do our part during the emergency, we are offering our services for free to those with illnesses or who over the age of 65 who are at higher risk when leaving the house to run their errands.

Through our Give to Get campaign, new users will receive a 20 euro/USD credit towards Prontopia’s services. Current users can refer a friend and will also receive the credit. As full paying customers continue to use the service, we are able to maintain our promise to help as many people as possible during this time period while continuing to pay our Prontopia local assistants.

At the end of the day, people need people. And when we hear from individuals that we’ve somehow made a difference in their lives, be it big or small, it only confirms that we’re headed in the right directions and motivates us to keep moving forward. As a thank you to our customers and Prontopia community, we wanted to share some of the lovely reviews and messages we’ve received over the last few weeks.

Santa Barbara Reviews

"I have used the Prontopia service twice for grocery shopping during this CovId-19 crisis - They are awesome! Easy to connect with , they are efficient , safe and friendly! They shop for more than one person at a time which decreases exposure to the community. Thank you Prontopia!"

- Colleen R.

"The shopping service that Ava Jakubowski provided through Prontopia couldn't have been better. Santa Barbara, Ca. is under stay at home order so having this service is a godsend!"

- Judith B.

"Just a shout out from Santa Barbara and a thank you to Ava and Prontopia for delivering food to us. What an awesome service. So appreciate the generosity of giving time to our community. Hugs to all!!"
