On July 10th AltruHelp hosted the second annual IMPACT Networking Event For Charity at the Microsoft N.E.R.D. Center in Cambridge, MA. Over 100 philanthropic Bostonians came together to enjoy a fun evening of speed-volunteering and networking to support the local non-profit community and increasing Millenial (ages 16-29) volunteersim. The attendees ranged from college and graduate students to accountants, lawyers, entrepreneurs, nonprofit leaders and more.
- 175+ Teaching aids to support literacy and education through Jumpstart
- 100+ Fleece toys for The Animal Rescue League of Boston
- 100 Backpacks packed with socks, soap, & household items for homeless individuals transitioning into housing through Friends of Boston’s Homeless
- 60+ Attendees exposed to Innercity Weightlifting’s personal stories
- 15+ Video interviews for If I Were President
- 10 New volunteers for Tech Goes Home and increased their online social presence by 20%
Additionally, the event raised more than $3000 for charity through ticket sales and a silent auction. We would like to thank our corporate sponsors including Microsoft, Zipcar, Foley & Lardner, Eventbrite, Boloco, Johnny Cupcakes, ScrubaDub, J.P. Licks, and more (see full list below).
A core component of AltruHelp’s mission is to create a space, virtual and physical, for people to come together, serve their communities, and make value-based connections while having fun. IMPACT Networking was designed to bring our online model (Altruhelp.com) offline to increase Millennial volunteerism and reinforce a lasting culture of service. We would like to thank the many volunteers and organizations, both corporate and non-profit (see list below), who helped make this event a success. We would also like to thank MassChallenge for their continued support.
