Last year we invited 17 teams to compete on the dodgeball court, all in the name of charity. It was awesome! While Heroku's team did defeat all the competition, the real champions are those who received some of the $57,000 we raised last year!
This year we're going bigger. More teams, more money for charity, more fun! $3,000 buy in to enter competition, all funds will go to charity. This year we can have 24 teams competing, for a total of $72k raised!
GitHub employees and a number of victims from other teams participate in an epic Dodgeball tournament. Each team that is entered donates at least $3000 to the charity pot. At the end, all of the donations will be split between 4 pre-choosen charities. In the process, thousands are entertained.
We will all be playing for four amazing local charities:
|826 Valencia||Dedicated to supporting students ages six to eighteen with their writing skills, and to helping teachers inspire their students to write.|
|Streetside Stories||Cultivates young people's voices to develop literacy and arts skills, fosters educational equity, values diversity, and builds community.|
|SF Public Libraries||Gives access to information, knowledge, independent learning and the joy of reading.|
|Second Harvest Food Bank||Mobilizes individuals, companies, and community partners to connect people to the nutritious food they need.|
