Google at 15 years old. How do you celebrate your birthday?

Have you visited Google today? If you haven’t, I suggest you temporarily stop reading this blog post to visit the Google Doodle for today. I’ll wait patiently until you come back.

Thanks for coming back! So what’s the Doodle about? Google turned 15 years old today, and, in true Google fashion, they invited everyone to celebrate with a little game.

It’s a perfect opportunity to get some coverage about what your organization does. Does your organization leverage its digital properties to highlight the creation of the organization or milestones that have been achieved along the way? What’s the best digital celebration of your organization’s birthday?
