The Story

From September 12-16, the Sitecore Community will converge on New Orleans for the two biggest global Sitecore events of the year, the Sitecore Symposium and the Sitecore MVP Summit. The Symposium is a sold out event and it's sure to be an educational and entertaining week.

Not far from New Orleans however, tens of thousands of Louisianans are in crisis due to historic flooding. Over 40,000 homes have been flooded and more than a dozen people have died. Many of these areas have never experienced flooding before, and there is sure to be a long period of recovery and rebuilding.

The Sitecore MVP Community is organizing a donation to help the residents of the state that is graciously hosting us. Proceeds will benefit the United Way of Southeast Louisiana. We are encouraging all individuals and organizations attending Symposium to make a contribution. Together, the Sitecore Community can help make a difference.

Hello Sitecore Community!

I am truly amazed at what we've been able to do here in just 2 weeks. Over $5,000 raised on YouCaring.com and another $1,000 offline! Everyone's generosity and enthusiasm in spreading the word has been inspiring. We hit our YouCaring goal before Symposium has even begun!

With that, I'm putting a new challenge out there -- let's double the amount we've raised on YouCaring by the end of Symposium. It's ambitious, but there are going to be over 1,000 people at Symposium. That's just $5 from each person. If you are presenting at Symposium, please add this slide and encourage folks to donate:

And even if you aren't presenting, please continue to get the word out there by linking to this page with the hashtags #SitecoreSym and #SitecoreSymGives.

Thanks everyone.

Hello Sitecore Community,

In less than a week we've already raised $1,680 on YouCaring.com, and another $1000 direct donation from Sitecore partner RBA, for a total of $2,680! Truly amazing, but let's keep it going!

Can we meet our goal *before* Symposium? If you haven't yet, please share to your social networks and within your organizations. And if you haven't contributed yet, any little bit helps. If you or your organization wants to donate directly to the Unity Way of SE Louisiana, please do so and just comment here so we can thank you publicly!

Look forward to seein y'all in New Orleans.

Nick
