GovLoop 2011 Charity Challenge: Federally Employed Women (FEW)

GovLoop is committed to giving back to the government community. Just before Thanksgiving, we wrapped up our 2011 Graduate Public Service Scholarship contest where we awarded $5,000 to three graduate students. Then we handed out 500 free lunches and held a scavenger hunt that rewarded 100 gift cards to public employees across the country to mark our 50,000-member milestone. Hot on the heels of those initiatives, we’re hoping you can help us spread even more holiday cheer to two worthy organizations that serve the government community – Federally Employed Women (FEW) and Young Government Leaders (YGL).

All you have to do is “Awesome” this post and we’ll give $5 to FEW.

Five seconds for you, $5 for them – easy, elegant.

ALSO: The organization with the most “Awesomes” between now and 12 Noon ET on December 21 will receive a bonus of $1,000! Help them win: tell your colleagues. Details on sharing are below.

FEW works to end sex and gender discrimination, to encourage diversity for inclusion and equity in the workplace, and works for the advancement and professional growth of women in federal service.

I’ve had the opportunity to attend a couple of FEW chapter meetings. Hopefully, down the road, I can also attend the annual meeting.

All, be sure not to “Un-awesome” your Awesomes. We were up to 150 earlier tonight on awesomes. Now we are at 141. Keep posting the Awesomes above. When you are done, it should read “It’s Awesome”. Thanks!

Unfortunately, whenever I log into this site, my “It’s Awesome” is already showing. It won’t let me click on “awesome.”
