6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
128 West Hastings Street
PeaceGeeks, a Vancouver-based non-profit organization, kicks off its annual crowdfunding campaign with a launch event at the HiVE Vancouver.
Please RSVP via Eventbrite.
If you’d like to make a donation before the event you can do that here.
PeaceGeeks uses a wide network of volunteers, many of whom are computer programmers and media designers by day, to support organizations around the world that promote peace and work to prevent conflict. Saathi in Nepal, ISIS WICCE in Uganda and Africa Youth for Peace and Development in Sierra Leone are a few projects that currently benefit from PeaceGeeks involvement.
The crowdfunding launch party officially kicks off the fundraising campaign that will run from November 7th to December 15th, 2013. The evening will include announcements of major donor commitments, a grand prize raffle for a cruise to the Bahamas, a silent auction, and other opportunities for guests to donate. There will be musical and spoken word performances by Chelsea D.E. Johnson and food, alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages will be available at a nominal cost.
Using grassroots social media and traditional sponsorships, PeaceGeeks expects to raise $20,000 during the campaign.
