Digital Wish has launched a series of online fundraising events called the ONE NATION Sports Chronicles on Zoom where NBA and NFL players are interviewed and viewers are invited to donate (like a telethon). In addition, we're launching a webinar series called "Solving the Digital Divide". We need a press writer to draft some press releases for both series.
We are in the midst of a huge twitter and social media campaign. The press writer will be instrumental in developing releases to expand awareness and encourage donors to give and join our campaign.
Bring technology to classrooms in order to prepare students to thrive in the global economy.
Digital Wish is a 501c-3 nonprofit on a mission to solve technology shortfalls in education. Every child deserves a technology-rich education to provide them with the skills necessary to thrive in the global economy. Digital Wish partners with technology providers to distribute free or reduced-cost educational technology such as refurbished laptops, tablets and internet "hotspots" to schools and teachers. Digital Wish manages a community of 64k educators in the US, assisting them with their technology needs through lesson plans, fundraiser campaigns for their "technology wishes" and access to affordable educational technology used in the classroom. Since its inception in 2006, Digital Wish has granted over 31,000 technology wishes to educators worth over $17 Million, and administered grants together with Verizon, Dell, Motorola, Henderson Foundation, and Microsoft.
Tracey is a highly capable writer. She communicates easily and is constantly asking for guidance. Her writing skills are well honed and she took a very complex program and simplified it into a coherent 1-page press release. I hope to work with Tracey on another project. If you are lucky enough to have her apply to your project, accept her immediately. She's a "keeper"!
I thoroughly enjoyed working for Digital Wish. They are dedicated to their cause of solving the digital divide for students. I was given everything I needed to make the project a success.
