After five months of planning and hard work, Give to the Max Day is here. Today, 1300 Washington area nonprofits will be fundraising, and experimenting with social media tools in a collective training exercise and contest. More than $140,000 in awards are available.
Please browse the participating nonprofits and donate or share about your favorites. If you live in the Greater Washington Area, this is your chance as an individual to make a statement to the country about our region’s compassion. We are expecting tens of thousands of citizens to donate and spread the word.
The event is part of Digital Capital Week or DCWEEK, the current festival bringing together the region’s designers, developers, entrepreneurs, technologists and social innovators. In fact, we are holding a rally tonight to close out Give to the Max Day. The rally is also the after party for the DCWEEK Keynotes at the Warner Theater. Please join us!
Finally, a special word of thanks to organizing partner Razoo for allowing me to serve as general manager of the event. It’s been a real fun and meaningful experience, from flash mobs to training hundreds of nonprofits on how to be more successful online. Today will be a great day!
