Clinton Global Initiative University (CGI U) - an initiative of the Bill, Hillary & Chelsea Clinton Foundation - brings college and university students together to turn ideas into action on local and global challenges.
In the CGI U Commitments Challenge, student teams square off to fund their social innovation, enterprise, and sustainability commitments. Similar to the NCAA "March Madness" tournament, the 16 student teams who raise the most money in the first round will compete in a head-to-head “bracket” to crowd-fund for their CGI U Commitments to Action. The winner will be announced on March 7 at CGI U 2015 in Miami, Florida.
Every student has an individual fundraising page, and all of the student teams will be participating in CGI U 2015 meeting.
Regardless of who the final winner is, every student team will keep the funds that they raise for their commitments on CrowdRise. All funds will go directly to the individual students and are not donations to CGI U or the Clinton Foundation. Only one donation per person will count in each round, and the maximum individual donation is $25.
It will take anywhere from 3 seconds to 1 minute for your pic to upload, depending on how big it is.
You're going to see this message every time you post a new pic. So, we're making the text really long so that it'll take you at least five picture uploads to read it all. Here's what we're thinking...While your first picture is uploading think about someone you want to kiss. When you upload your second pic think about one friend who you can beat in a race. On your third photo upload think about your favorite food that begins with the letter H. While your fourth picture is uploading think about how great it would be if you were a world class breakdancer. While your fifth picture is uploading try to think of the best candy to eat if you were a mime spending a month in New Zealand. If you upload a sixth and seventh picture please just read all of this again.
We're setting up your Fundraiser page right now. It will take anywhere from 3 seconds to 27 seconds.
