As a #GivingTuesdayCLT Partner, Social Ape participated in the #GivingTuesdayCLT Nonprofit Prep Rally yesterday. This event offered an opportunity for the participating nonprofits of #GivingTuesdayCLT 2015 to learn more about the campaign as well as how they can help to reach this year's fundraising goal of $2million. We had a table at the event to show the nonprofits how to increase their social media presence throughout the campaign and beyond.

The swag given away at the Social Ape table was a great incentive for the nonprofits to participate in the Passport activity, which encouraged the nonprofit members who attended to get a signature from all four tables at the event to become eligible for a raffle giveaway. The other three tables at the event were of the #GivingTuesdayCLT partners Spark Strategic Ideas, Skookum, and Web Station.

Janine Davis from Girl Talk Foundation, Mary Ellen Player from Google Fiber, and Susan Patterson from The Knight Foundation all did an amazing job rallying the nonprofits to get even more involved in helping #GivingTuesdayCLT to reach its $2M goal this year.

Along with great speakers, the food and drinks were also a hit! Frans Filling Station, the Winestore, and Heist Brewery all contributed to display a delicious spread for all the nonprofits to enjoy.
