Founded in January 2013 and based in Silicon Valley, California, CARMAnation is a peer-to-peer sharing community that is making parking more convenient and affordable. Parking is one of the most vexed commodities in modern American life. A nation of about 300 million citizens with 255 million registered cars has as many as 800 million parking spaces, but not enough at the right place at the right time at a fair price. We created a simple way to make money while helping to solve a growing problem in our cities that affect us on a daily basis. The workings are simple: offer your spot free, name your own price, or offer it in exchange for a donation towards your favorite charity organization.
