Vote: Which Event Idea Should Win a $500 Grant?

Which event idea should we grant $500 to help people connect?


Last month, we launched a #30DaysofGOOD Fund on GOOD Maker, our submission and voting platform, to support September's challenge about connecting with people. We asked the GOOD community to send us an event ideas on how they would use $500 to bring people around them closer.

You sent in 81 event ideas from around the United States, including New York, Texas, Florida, California, Oregon, and Massachusetts, to name a few. Ideas range from organizing local farmers to teach students about growing produce to hosting a Boston Dance Jam open to all dancers in the area to test out their moves and meet one another.


Now we need your help. Cast your vote on which idea we should grant the prize money.
