Better World Club
Offers a Wedding Present while Congratulating Same-Sex
Newlyweds: We Didn't Think You'd Ever Get Married!
Better World Contact: Mitch Rofsky,
Portland, Ore. -- (March 16, 2004) --
Better World Club, the world's first and only roadside
assistance club dedicated to preserving the environment,
and the first auto club to recognize domestic partners
nationally, now wants to congratulate all same-sex
partners on taking the big step: "We didn't think
you'd ever get married!"
As is customary, Better World is giving
the newlyweds a wedding present. Any couple married
between February 12th through the end of June, 2004,
can fax or send Better World a copy of their marriage
license and Better World will give them $30.00 off
a Premium Plus membership. The happy couple (and any
other driving members of the new family) will receive
all of Better World's nationwide roadside assistance
services and unique benefits for $64.95, thirty dollars
off the regular price of $94.95.
"And, Better World doesn't discriminate:
different sex couples married during the same time
period will receive the same wedding present. Yes,
we're including June brides
says Mitch Rofsky, Better World Club President.
Until Better World, same-sex couples
had an unattractive choice to make when signing up
for the kind of roadside assistance clubs used by
millions of Americans: either pretend that they were
a heterosexual couple-usually by not spelling out
the last name of one of the partners or pay for an
additional primary membership (which costs more than
an additional person on a primary membership). Virtually
from its inception, Better World enabled same-sex
couples to obtain roadside assistance and acknowledge
that they are domestic partners, use their actual
names, and sign up for one membership at the reduced
prices available to all households. A sign-up form
is available at www.betterworldclub.com
