Microsoft’s Upgrade Your World is a new year-long initiative to celebrate the people and organizations that inspire and empower others. It is aimed at helping people achieve more through technology and to celebrate Microsoft’s Windows 10 launch, which is supposed to be a free upgrade. We are not promoting the launch or Microsoft in any way but are just paying it forward by spreading the world about another initiative to change the world.
Microsoft will be partnering with 10 global and 100 local nonprofits to help upgrade the world. They will be investing $10 million to support these organization’s missions and to promote awareness of their causes.
The global nonprofits chosen to participate in this endeavor are CARE, Code.org, Keep a Child Alive, Malala Fund, Pencils of Promise, Save the Children, Special Olympics, The Global Poverty Project, and The Nature Conservancy. And Microsoft want’s your help in choosing the 10th nonprofit. Starting on July 29th, Microsoft invites you to vote for a 10th global nonprofit to participate in the Upgrade Your World project.
Additionally, starting in September, Microsoft will crowdsource nominations for 10 nonprofits in the following 10 countries:
- United Kingdom
- United States
These 100 local winners across the world will each receive a cash investment to support their work to upgrade the world. Tens of thousands of Microsoft employees around the world will help towards the Upgrade Your World initiative by taking a day off to volunteer to upgrade their community.
Beginning on July 29th, Microsoft invites you to share your story and the things you’re doing to make an impact on your community, using the #UpgradeYourWorld.
