Give Thanks4Good and vote for your favorite organization!

Let’s give Thanks4Good and celebrate local nonprofits and social change groups that do amazing — yet often unrecognized — work with technology.

We asked the PDXTech4Good community to nominate nonprofits and social good groups for their outstanding use of tech. Two weeks later we received 20 nominations for 19 remarkable groups (one group was nominated twice!) and now it’s time to vote. Help celebrate local tech for good and vote for your favorite groups: http://tinyurl.com/thanks4goodvote.

The five groups with the most votes will then be invited to present at the Thanks4Good celebration onWednesday November 6.

After the voting process we’ll encourage the community to help raise a bit of money in recognition of the top vote-getter. (The PDXTech4Good organizer team, Bethany, Jade, and Ivan, has pledged $100 to the winner. We will also solicit a $5 suggested donation at the door of the Thanks4Good event.)

Help spread the word!
