Net2 DC December Meetup

  • Dec 19, 2006 · 7:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Social changemakers and technological forerunners come together at Net Tuesday events to mix, swap stories and ideas, build new relationships, and reinforce the online NetSquared (http://www.netsquared...) community.

Our topic for the last Net2 DC Meetup of the year is.... "Building a community of 7 million: Lessons from Care2 for politics, advocacy and fundraising"

And our discussion leader? None other than Care2's Justin Perkins and Heather Holdridge.

Justin and Heather work with nonprofits to help them leverage Care2's audience for marketing, fundraising, advocacy, political and community-building campaigns. Justin Perkins, a social entrepreneur and former State water resources administrator for a major watershed in Colorado, joined Care2 in January 2006 as a Nonprofit Services Manager, a role in which Justin supports Care2?s nonprofit services team and nonprofits with marketing strategy, project implementation, social networking strategy and community growth. Among other things, Justin manages and edits the website and newsletter, as well as Care2's new project,, a site for the public to gain indepth exposure to progressive issues from the 250-plus Moving Ideas nonprofit members that support the issues. Justin's new role as Product Manager involves the development of new tools for nonprofits to benefit from Care2's audience of almost 7 million members.

Heather Holdridge, who worked for six years with consulting firm CTSG, and joined Care2's DC team in 2005 as Director of Political Advocacy, a role in which she is working with a growing list of organizations that benefit from access to Care2?s politically-engaged membership. Previously, Heather worked for the nonprofit group Project Vote Smart.
