For the WPCampus 2019 conference, our organizing team decided that, in lieu of spending money on swag, the WPCampus organization would donate those funds to Free Geek, a non-profit organization in the Portland metro area that focuses on creating digital equity through environmental sustainability. We invited others to donate to the cause. Overall, we raised $3,050.
Hilaryn Shohoney, Free Geek's Manager of Development, joined us at our WPCampus 2019 event in Portland to share about their organization.
