It's been 5 years since the first EdCamp. It's amazing how the idea has spread and how many people EdCamps have impacted. I know how much I have benefited by learning from so many interesting, smart people!
So now it's time to give back. The Edcamp Foundation is kicking off a campaign on #GivingTuesday, December 1st. The information below is shared from Hadley Ferguson on the Edcamp blog. I hope you will consider a gift.
We are kicking off a campaign for #GivingTuesday, which is the Tuesday after Thanksgiving! December, 1st! It follows Black Friday and Cyber Monday and is a time to pause and give back. We want to have everyone who has ever been to an Edcamp to donate $5, that’s all, to show the world how many educators have been touched by Edcamp.
$5 for Edcamp Year 5; #IsupportEdcamp5, #Edcamp5Challenge
So mark the date: Dec.1, 2015, and make a donation! Of course, if you want to do it ahead of time or afterwards until the end of 2015, that’s fine too. And after you have made your donation, contact your Edcamp friends and encourage them to donate as well.
It is a quick and easy process. All it takes is going to the bottom of this page, and clicking on the Donate button. Remember that we are a non-profit, so any money donated to the Edcamp Foundation is fully tax-deductible.
