Last month, the Portland #PDXTech4Good group held an event to celebrate nonprofit and social good groups in the Portland area. They asked the #PDXTech4Good community to nominate nonprofits and social good groups for their outstanding use of tech. Four weeks later they received 20 nominations for 19 remarkable groups and an overwhelming 500+ voting submissions!
