Trulioo is playing with the big dogs and participating in Tech’s Got Talent, a fundraising event for local charities by Vancouver’s largest tech companies as they go head to head in the most epic lip sync battle yet.
In 2015, Tech's Got Talent had 19 companies participate, which attracted a sold out crowd and ultimately raised over $50,000 for local charities. This year promises to be even better, with more companies, more wackiness, and hopefully, more money for charities. The event will take place June 1, 2017 at The Imperial Theatre, 319 Main Street, Vancouver.
Trulioo will be raising funds for Backpack Buddies, an initiative by Community First Foundation to feed kids in the Downtown Eastside (DTES) neighborhood, currently providing over 300 of them on a bi-weekly basis with breakfasts, lunches, and dinners plus snacks, yogurt, cheese, and fresh fruit. Their mission is to fill the weekend hunger gap for children who rely on school meal programs Monday to Friday. Backpack Buddies is founded on the belief that in order for kids to feel compassion and empathy, they need to understand and learn about the issues faced by others and then to be provided with tangible opportunities to actually help and be part of the solution.
Our team has successfully raised funds internally through company-wide events, and now we’d like to raise funds externally with the support of local Vancouverites. Do you want to help support Backpack Buddies? Time for a new profile photo? Accomplish both goals by donating $5 (or more!) and you will receive an 8” x 10” digital photo in return. All proceeds go to Backpack Buddies; Because Hunger Doesn't Take The Weekend Off.
Our media team will be taking profile photos in downtown Vancouver on Wednesday, May 10 from 12:30 – 2:30 PM at 875 W. Hastings (Hastings and Hornby Plaza). We’ll also be selling baked goods in the area, so you can also get something sweet.
Look good and feel good; get a new profile photo while helping charity.
