We’ve all seen the devastation that Hurricane Harvey has wrought on Houston and we’ve seen the kindness of humanity as well. Not only are regular people pitching in to help victims of Hurricane Harvey but some technology companies are lending a hand as well. Technology companies — from Silicon Valley to the Silicon Prairie and Silicon Slopes — are launching initiatives to raise funds to support relief efforts in Houston and Louisiana. While there are quite a few major companies doing marvelous things here are just three smaller companies that are trying to make a difference.
CompTIA – The Computing Technology Industry Association is contributing $2 for every $1 donated to Heart to Heart International to support the Hurricane Harvey relief campaign. Donations can be made here: http://bit.ly/CompTIACares. Donors need to select CompTIA when prompted for a company donation match to ensure their contribution is matched two-for-one.
G2 Crowd – The review website for business products and services is using G2 Gives, a give-back program the company introduced this past spring, to raise funds for victims in Houston and Louisiana. For each verified review posted to G2 Crowd through the “G2 Gives to Support Relief Efforts for Hurricane Harvey” landing page, the company will donate $10 to support the American Red Cross.
Snapsheet – The provider of virtual claims technology is raising funds for the United Way of Greater Houston to support relief efforts in the city and throughout the surrounding suburbs.
When people and companies come together, even in the smallest of ways, it can make a huge difference. Even if you’re unable to support relief efforts in a monetary way, you can help by spreading awareness of programs like these through social media and word of mouth.
