Hi everyone! Hoping that everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving and that you're enjoying this long holiday weekend! Here is your community update for December 2013.
Welcome all of our new members! Thank you for joining the SFTech4Good community, and we hope to see you at our next event on December 10th.
I want thank all the people that help make these events possible. This includes our members, our guests, our sponsors, and everyone else that help us to organize and keep these events going. It really wouldn't be possible without your help and support.
What was really great was that I got word from one of our members who went to the BSR Hackathon that he was part of the 3rd place team! I love that we're out there making an impact and congratulations!
Every day on Change.org, individuals and organizations are winning their campaigns by mobilizing passionate supporters.
Colette Kesler from Change.org will walk us through and help us take a closer look at Change.org users, issue areas and campaigning trends, ways to engage with these users, and how to grow your organization’s existing supporter base.
The goal is for you to walk away with tips and tools to power your own causes and campaigns for your organizations and more.
The holiday season is the perfect time to give back. Women Who Code has collaborated with Chime for Change and Twitter to build a hackathon in support of women and girls.
#CHIMEHACK is an opportunity for the brightest minds and visionary leaders in technology to convene to create mobile app solutions in support girls and women. CHIME FOR CHANGE will connect the tech community to issue experts and nonprofits to identify ways for disruptive mobile app solutions to support girls and women globally, and to celebrate the power of women in tech.
The Social Workshop will take place on December 14th in SoMa. The theme is "How can entrepreneurship and technology help alleviate social inequalities in San Francisco?" The participants, usually 30 to 40 students and young professionals, work in groups during one day to come up with solution to specific social issues.
