NJ Tech Meetup raises $27,000 for Hoboken

NJ Tech Meetup announces:

HealHoboken.org: Since we launched www.HealHoboken.org, we've raised over $27,000. The 1st batch of tshirts and hoodies arrived last week, thanks to volunteer Edan Golomb. eBay, Magento, and Hoboken's Red Stage chipped in to rebuild the site using Magento and we now have offers from local businesses like East LA to support the cause. Get a discount to East LA, StearClear, CleanPopo, Adameus Design, and EatDrinkNJ. Here are things you can do:
  1. Donate now. Check out all of the offers here.
  2. Have a product or service to donate to the cause? Please let us know.
  3. We are seeking a corporation that will let us use its shipping account or reimburse the shipping expenses so more funds can go to the cause, and not to shipping.
  4. We need someone to be the point person for all of the marketing opportunities that are coming our way and to call upon more business to donate products and services.
Radio time: Friday night the NJ Tech Meetup was featured on 88.3 about the state of technology in NJ. Great story done by NJ Tech Meetup's own Katie Colaneri. Listen here.
Kinda like the grammies - and we won! Last week the Hoboken Chamber of Commerce gave the NJ Tech Meetup the award for New Business of the Year. Way to go us! This is truly an award we all have won. Checkout (and like) our swanky trophy.
