Summer solstice was a beauty in Seattle – blue skies, a balmy evening, with a glorious sunset to follow, extending long and luminous into dusk. It was the ideal setting for us to host our Give Together launch party at the South Lake Union Discovery Center. The occasion had all the ingredients for a perfect party: great food and drink, swag bags, a photo booth, stellar attendees, and generous sponsors. Rest assured, it did not disappoint.
We were so thrilled to have everyone attend, and were delighted to see people having a scream of a time, making new connections, and learning about our new giving program. We truly appreciated the support.
We wanted to say thank you
None of this could have happened without the hard work and generosity of our sponsors and volunteers.
Our first thanks goes to our awesome sponsor Postmates. In case you weren’t there, you simply have to know about these guys. Postmates is a Seattle delivery provider, with one incredible service: with Postmates, every restaurant and store in Seattle now delivers – in under an hour – to wherever you are. Download their app here, and use it to order anything in the city from 8am-midnight every day. You can order food from your favorite restaurant, a new dress for a last-minute date, or courier an important document across the city. They work as a traditional courier service as well!
Our next thanks goes to Tagboard. Tagboard is an awesome tool that allows anyone to search hashtags across networks, including Twitter, Instagram, App.net, Vine, Google +, and Facebook. With tagboards you see the whole conversation, across networks, making them the perfect hub for social media. We used their platform at the event to tie collate and display our #GiveTogether hashtag. Find out more info about Tagboard here.
A huge thank you must also go our brilliant friends at Socializing For Social Change who helped us put on yet another epic event.
Of course, another big thank you goes to our stalwart volunteers, who gave their time and energy to plan, organize, and execute what was a wonderful evening: Chi, Rekha, Pragya, Aswath, Linh, Dhanya, Nancy, Daljit, Mari, Nadia and Adnan.
Thank you everyone for discovering Give Together with us, supporting us, and spreading the word!
