Photos, Votes and “Likes” March 12-19 Support Job Creation and Training
March 6, 2012, Denver, Colo. – Veterans Green Jobs is participating in an awareness campaign sponsored by GE to promote job creation and training, with a potential to raise $10,000 for Veterans Green Jobs’ nonprofit programs. During the week of March 12-19, GE’s What Works Project invites the public to submit photos and captions of the people, places and things working in their lives to an online website (www.celebratewhatworks.com) to demonstrate their support. Veterans Green Jobs will be the featured partner on the What Works Project website March 12-19, when each click and each donation benefits Veterans Green Jobs’ employment and training initiatives for military veterans.
Starting on February 2, 2012, GE partnered with GOOD/Corps to turn participation into donations for nonprofit partners across the country. All photo and caption submissions are represented on the www.celebratewhatworks.com platform as a massive interactive collage, which surfaces key themes of “what works.”
Each day, the top-voted submission receives the What Works Project Daily $500. Each week a featured nonprofit can raise up to $10,000 from users’ participation, which triggers a $1 donation for the first submission and vote each day.
People who want to support Veterans Green Jobs trigger a donation by following one of these three simple steps on the www.celebratewhatworks.com website during the week of March 12-19:
- Submit a photo of what works in the world – the people, places and things that matter most to you. Then share why you feel they work by filling in the caption.
- Vote for all your favorite photos by clicking the heart in the upper left corner.
- Like GE on Facebook through the CelebrateWhatWorks.com homepage.
GE’s What Works Project will run through November 1, 2012.
