In 1939, the United Kingdom had just entered World War II and its leaders realized that it would be important to maintain morale in the event of an invasion. They knew that people need in uncertain times is a strong, confident and reassuring message to keep in mind. And so the government created a series of posters to rally the country, including one with the words “Keep Calm and Carry On”.
Some 70+ years later in another time and place, we still encounter moments of uncertainty. We worry about the price of gas. We find ourselves stuck in Seattle with our girlfriend in SF. Everyone just seems a little grouchier than usual. We’ve got a free weekend but no car, or we’ve got a car but no travel buddy.
In times like these, a strong, confident, and reassuring messages is what we all need. And that’s why Ridejoy is proud to have the words “Share Rides and Spread Joy”, emblazoned across our company shirts. We find it lifts our spirits and the spirits of those around us, bringing a sense of collaboration and delight to all.
Note how happy everyone looks in the photo from our article in Vanity Fair. =)
Get the Shirt!
It’s such a great shirt, in fact, that we’ve decided we can’t keep it all to ourselves any longer. We’ll be offering it to the general public sometime later this fall. If you’re interested in snagging one for yourself, leave your email address and we’ll be sure to let you know!
