Nate H.
Group Organizer
New York, NY
Details are finally in place for the Social Change Camp on Sept. 26th 2009, and registration is open. Please register as soon as possible, since this event is going to be very well attended and tickets are likely to sell out;


Note that we are using eventbrite for registrations rather than meetup so if you've already said you are coming please go to the eventbrite page to reserve a ticket. Price for the event is $10, and while we can't promise anything just yet we believe that in exchange for that we will be providing some food, a t-shirt commemorating the event, and a $100 gift certificate to to apply to the charity of your choice. So register early, spread the word, and start thinking of things you want to share or learn at the event!
