Featured guest: Clay Ward, Founder, Buy It Like You Mean It
Here is a summary of the our upcoming session:
ProcrasDonate is a new kind of hybrid fundraising tool for non-profits. It works like this... users improve their time management by donating to selected websites whenever they waste an hour online. Our preliminary research suggests that people will give five times more as a charitable incentive than they would as a traditional donation. So we're very excited to sign up worthwhile charities and to learn how else to spread the word about this fun new software."Here's a little bit about Clay himself:
Clay Ward is an artist/entrepreneur who is a graduate of MIT and Parsons School of Design who worked on numerous community art projectsbefore moving to the virtual realm. He recently founded Buy It Like You Mean It, a tool for educational discovery about the real world impacts of product supply chains. As a co-founder of ProcrasDonate.com he remains committed to strategic service and to responding to the deeper needs of virtual communities."
At the conclusion of our Ethos Roundtable session, we will stroll down the hall to enjoy the good company and free food at the 501 Tech Club that is so generously underwritten by TechFoundation. The 501 Tech Club is the monthly gathering of technology professionals who work with nonprofit organizations.
All Ethos Roundtable attendees are welcome at the Boston 501 Tech Club, and vice versa.
Please remember that there's never any need to make a reservation to attend Ethos Roundtable events. Just come if you can, and feel free to invite others! However, if you're planning to attend the Boston 501 Tech Club event at 6:00 pm, we ask that you send an email to Kathleen Sherwin of TechFoundation (ksherwin AT techfoundation DOT org). Since TechFoundation is providing the free food, it's courteous to let them know how much to order.
