You’ve heard of slacktivism, but have you heard of geektivism? You’ll get to see it in action at TechEd!

If you’re headed to TechEd this June, think about volunteering. Thanks to a partnership with GeekGive (which was born at TechEd 2009) there will be a number of opportunities to give back to the community while you’re soaking up the conference…and the sun.

Here are the details:

Saturday, June 9, you can:

·         Work with Habitat for Humanity to build a house in the Orlando area.

·         Work with the Coalition for the Homeless to serve meals to those in need.

During TechEd, you can participate in the following onsite volunteer activities (no registration necessary):

  • In conjunction with the Foundation for Hospital Art, attendees can help create colorful paintings and murals that will be installed in a local Orlando hospital.  No artistic experience necessary!  Click here for more details about the Foundation for Hospital Art.  
  • Attendees will also have opportunities to assemble care packages for pediatric in-patients in the Orlando area.  We’ll be packaging toiletries, games, puzzles, books and more, as well as writing notes of encouragement to be delivered to Ronald McDonald House and local hospitals after the event.  Help bring smiles to those that need it most.

Join fellow TechEd attendee’s in giving back while getting geeky!
