A 10-day experiment: Building an advisory board #100for100

Apr 11, 2012   //   by Cameron   //   Alumni for Public Schools, Get Involved, News, Non Profits  //  No Comments

The concept was simple: Inspire 100 of the most successful young professionals in Chicago to each donate $100 to fund an amazing program now in a dozen CPS schools.

The hard part? Doing it in 10-days.

Launching yesterday on LinkedIn, Facebook and Twitter, #100for100 is off to an amazing start. We set up a blog specifically for the project, and it has been getting a ton of traffic so far.  We use Eventbrite for all our fundraising events and so far we have a dozen supporters (so we are on pace!) who have committed to the board which is very exciting!
