Last November, Traction on Demand held the first ever Bandit Tour for Good. Based on the movie Smokey and the Bandit (Traction’s CEO Greg is very similar to the Bandit!), the tour is a five-day road trip from Vancouver to San Fran for’s cloud technology conference Dreamforce.The purpose of the tour is threefold:

1. Provide pro-bono services for non-profits organizations along the way,

2. Perform impactful Bandit Acts of Kindness (random acts of kindness) in each of the communities we roll through.

3. Do as much good and have as much fun as possible!
The Bandit Tour 2014 will kick off in downtown Vancouver on October 8th with a non-profit implementation for Growing Chefs! Chefs for Children’s Urban Agriculture and a number of Bandit acts of kindness.
