We got you something! (But it’s not here yet.)
This year, however, instead of building presents for the present, we’ve got something else in mind—for the future. ✨
Why Girls Who Code?
Earlier this year, the Geeks were introduced to the amazing organization Girls Who Code by one of our besties, and we are ever so grateful.
Girls Who Code is on a mission to close the gender gap in technology—and to change the image of what a programmer looks like and does.
Because in 1995, 37% of computer scientists were women. Today, it’s only 24%. And the biggest drop off of girls in computer science is between the ages of 13 and 17. 📉
From Presents for the Present to Investing in Our Future
So we’ve taken some of those 1s and 0s from a new holiday app we could have built today …
↪ and converted them to $$ …
↪ and invested in the programmers of tomorrow through an end-of-the-year donation to Girls Who Code.
Without you, our friends and clients, we wouldn’t be the team we are today—dreaming about our team of tomorrow.
So even though the present we’re dreaming about isn’t here yet, we can keep working on it together … until it finally arrives. 🧡
