Hi all,
I hope you can join us tomorrow night.


Net Impact in partnership with Care 2 and Creative Cause presents a Professional Development Series for Social entrepreneurs building communities for change.

When: Thursday, April 26,[masked]:00pm - 8:00pm
Where: Care2/Oxfam Offices,[masked]th. St. NW, Suite 600, Washington, D.C. 20005 (NW corner of 15th & L)

With the emerging use and popularity of social media, today?s social entrepreneurs can find cost-effective and creative ways to be efficient in meeting their blended social and economic goals.

Panel Speakers:
John Hecklinger, Global Giving
Stacie Mann, Network for Good
Neil Takemoto, Cooltown Studios
Justin Perkins, Care2

This panel features four sustainable organizations that have figured out how to channel individuals into real action more efficiently. In Cool Town Studio's case it's working potential buyers into co-designing beta communities or businesses on the front end to be sustainable and more user-centric; with Global Giving it's connecting individuals directly with overseas development projects, with Network for Good it's connecting individuals with nonprofits and each other using peer to peer fundraising, and is connecting individuals with other individuals and nonprofits based on their interests in social and environmental issues and causes.

And best of all meet like-minded social entrepreneurs, social marketers, nonprofit communicators, and corporate social responsibility professionals at the 6 PM reception. Panel starts at 6:30.

Refreshments provided by DC Central Kitchen/Fresh Start Catering
