Women in AV and AV Gents: Let’s Bake and Tweet Up to Help Those in Need!



Let’s celebrate our AV community and work together raising much needing funding for a wonderful cause, Choice Humanitarian. http://choicehumanitarian.org/ Choice Humanitarian is a Utah based non-profit that works to end poverty in third-world countries. Not only do they help with services and funding, they also provide critical resources, including AV equipment! http://choicehumanitarian.org/critical_needs.php


So, how are we going to do this?! During the 1st week of April, we invite everyone to plan and hold local Bake Sales within your company’s offices throughout the world. Pick a day or multiple days that work best for you! This is about building the strength of community in our industry, and we ask that you participate. AV Gents, you too! If you are not a baker extraordinaire yourself, have your wife, sister, mom, or even your local super market whip something delicious up for your event!! We know that many of you are masters in the kitchen. Here is your chance to show and tell.

On Friday, April 6th, 2012, we’ll have an industry-wide WAVE Tweet Up to meet and share with each other over Twitter about our Bake Sales and how much each of us and our industry can raise in support of Choice Humanitarian’s wonderful cause.  Jump on Twitter throughout the day Friday using the hashtag #WAVE and tell us about your Bake Sales and what having a strong sense of community means to your company. Share pictures, send links, tell us stories — let everyone know however and as often as you can.
Even if you don’t have a Bake Sale this week, join us in raising awareness and sharing about how important giving and being of service to others means to you.  Remember, Choice Humanitarian takes donations of AV equipment if you can spare to donate an old projector or other gear!
Alright everyone, we know how seriously our industry loves a challenge. So, who’s in and better yet, who’s going to make the best cupcakes!!
