Amplify our social message

We are currently active on twitter. Following @FoldTheNorth on twitter and retweeting some of our messages really helps us get the message out

Help us find more folders

Use your network to help increase our contribution

Let us present our message to your network. We have hosted/run presentations, lunch and learns and AMA(Ask Me Anything) session as ways of recruiting and getting the message out. If you know of an audience who is looking for a presenter let us know!

It takes a crew to run a ship and many of us are filling in multiple roles. If you’d be interested in contributing to a role let us know. No commitment needed !

  • Team Administration
  • Marketing
  • Media/Blog
  • Translation
  • Accessability
  • etc!

Sponsor our sticker procurment goal!

It would be really awesome if we could give the Folders a laptop sticker/badge of honor showing their contribution to the cause.
