What will YOU Give Up for Peace?

PeaceGeeks is launching our second annual #GiveItUp4Peace campaign and we want you to join us to kick off the campaign!

Join us for beer, appies, conversation and hear fellow participants pledge what they're Giving Up for Peace and how your hard earned fundraising dollars can help support millions more refugees around the world!

Last year, #GiveItUp4Peace raised over $46,000 which allowed PeaceGeeks to deploy the Services Advisor web application in Jordan that empowers more than 655,000 refugees under its mandate by connecting them to information on critical life-saving and sustaining services such as food, shelter, and sanitation.

PeaceGeeks has received requests from UNHCR in Somalia and Turkey to launch Services Advisor in those countries, which support more than 7 million refugees and internally displaced people (IDPs). Now, we need your help to make these requests a reality. Your support this year will help PeaceGeeks to create and maintain better tools to help refugees address the most significant humanitarian crisis in history.

Join us for our annual #GiveItUp4Peace Campaign and help PeaceGeeks to raise $50,000 so we can help those displaced by conflict to improve their own lives through better access to critical services.

Did we mention there will be beer?!
