Congratulations to Jennifer Marsman and the team running the Ann Arbor GiveCamp event last weekend. What an amazing experience! Read all about it on Jennifer’s blog. I know from my personal experiences helping to organize and run a GiveCamp event – the We Are Microsoft Charity Challenge Weekend – that this is a very time consuming planning effort, but well worth all the work. I’m so proud to see so many new success stories coming out of these events and so many happy charities :)
If you’re interested in running your own GiveCamp type of event, please check out our GiveCamp portal at http://www.givecamp.org. There are some great resources there for you to learn from others on how they structured and ran their events, and a way for you to contribute back to the collective knowledge.
