Edcamp Foundation #GivingTuesday Campaign

The Edcamp Foundation is organizing a campaign for #GivingTuesday, which will begin on the Tuesday after Black Friday and Cyber Monday. It is a day to encourage people to give to their favorite nonprofits, so they are hoping to connect with Edcamp folks around the world.

It is a very simple campaign: $5 to celebrate 5 years of Edcamp! #IsupportEdcamp5 and #Edcamp5Challenge

Click here to participate in the $5 for 5 years of Edcamp. The Donate button on the website is all that you need!

Here is an explanation of the campaign from Hadley Ferguson, the Director of the Edcamp Foundation:

"While it will raise money, the primary purpose is to show the tremendous reach of the Edcamp movement. Because every Edcamp is independently run, there is no master list of organizers or participants, so when we talk to funders, it is all very general. It would be wonderful to be able to point to this campaign and show how enthusiastic Edcamp folks are and how widespread we are.

It would be great to be able to light up a map with every $5 donation that we receive.

The funds will go into the Discovery grants program that we are rolling out next year. Through it, teachers will be able to apply to the Edcamp Foundation for funds to implement an idea with their students that they learned at an Edcamp."

Please donate $5.00 on Tuesday, 12/1 or at anytime between now and the end of 2015.
I already did!
