If you could describe the importance of education in one word, what would you choose? Opportunity? Empowerment? Survival? Freedom? Security? Equality? Growth? NetIP North America launched Charity is Colorblind (CiC) with a focus on education in 2012 because the truth is that education is a powerful vehicle to attain all of the above and much more. The initiative this year seeks to support charitable causes that raise awareness to the importance of education and helps those in need of a proper education.
Among the many CiC events that have taken place nationwide this year, we are happy to announce the launch of one more large scale event: The second annual Charity is Colorblind (CiC) Day of Service event, THINK Community Impact, taking place Saturday morning of the NetIP NA 21st Annual Conference! Conference registrants and community members will have the opportunity to join hundreds of volunteers to engage in various community service projects in Chicago to support education. This year, beneficiaries include Chicago Public Schools (CPS) and NetIP Foundation.
The NetIP/NetSAP community recently held its First Annual Chapter-Wide Day of Service on Saturday, June 9, 2012, where many chapters across North America held a community service event in each chapter city. The NetIP NA Conference CiC Day of Service will be the finale event to celebrate the culmination of community service hours chapters have contributed to Day of Service.
We are also proud to announce our CiC Day of Service Fundraising campaign: a campaign to raise funds to make this charitable event happen! Through this campaign, participants can earn a FREE OR DISCOUNTED CONFERENCE TICKET.
