Say what you will about tech types; when they decide to do something they don't mess around. Back in March, the tech-arts-design-entreprenuerial whiz kids attending the spring TEDxAtlanta event decided to grant their inaugural "Wish" prize to the Year of Boulevard initiative and raised $6,500 in cash and $25,000 in pledges on the spot. Nice work.
At the March 13 TEDxAtlanta event, the group presented its first-ever "Wish" grant to Kwanza Hall and the Year of Boulevard initiative. Organizers of the TEDx event — which brings together people from the tech, creative, nonprofit, and business communities — asked Hall to present a "wish" to TEDx attendees. Hall challenged the TEDxAtlanta attendees to help create jobs and internships for the young residents of the Village of Bedford Pines and to raise cash to support summer camps and job training programs.
