Join Us to Create Solutions to Fight Unemployment

Thank you for joining our #TechTakesOnCovid hackathon last quarter!

With your help, we donated $8,500 USD to some amazing charities picked by the winners. For the list of winners and global charities supported, check out this blog post. Shoutout to the Collabovid, Notes for Support and McMarvin teams!

It was so much fun and so impactful that we are doing it again. This time we are tackling a huge problem caused by the global health pandemic which is the massive rise in unemployment globally. So today at 12:00PM EST we are launching our Tech Takes On Unemployment hackathon which will run over four weeks, check it out here:

This is another chance to use your skills and creativity to make an impact and support communities in need. Aside from the prize money, for every project submitted, we will donate $25 USD to charities on your behalf.

You can find resources and inspiration here and our hackathon handbook here.
