Celebrating our Dot.Org Award
In recognition of our creative Teach It Forward campaign for November's Give to the Max Day, we received a 2014 Dot.Org Award from the Minnesota Council of Nonprofits.
Each year, four nonprofit organizations are presented with a Dot.Org Award in front of 700 attendees at the Nonprofit Communications and Technology Conference. We were proud to share the stage with Caring Bridge, the Minnesota Historical Society and Oak Meadows. Our favorite part of the ceremony? The audible gasp from the crowd when they heard we put on our Teach it Forward campaign with just $50!

On Give to the Max Day, we surprised 13 volunteers, students and staff members with a Teach it Forward Award. At every stop our traveling trophy made, we uploaded a video to YouTube and shared it on Facebook. We especially like award #4 to our preschooler Say Gay.

When people stopped by our booth to learn about our Dot.Org award, we asked them to pose for a photo with our trophy and give a shout out to someone in their life who teaches it forward. People recognized first-grade teachers, college professors, grandmas and pets!
