#HackForGood was a 12-hour event, whereby five charities received an online makeover, worth 10,000 euro through the skills and expertise of volunteers. The five worthy projects who were chosen included: Surf2Heal East Cork, Equine Assisted Learning (EAL), S.H.A.R.E., Togher Family Centre & Down Syndrome Centre Cork.

 

  “We were overwhelmed with the support of the tech community in giving back to these 5 worthy Cork organisations. This a is a great initiative and we look forward to seeing where it goes in the future. commented CEO of Cork Foundation Padraic Vallely

 

This event was a great opportunity for individuals and organisations to give back to the Cork. These groups give so much to the people of Cork City and County and this is a chance to give something back to them.

This event would not be possible without the help of the Cork community. It is great to see volunteers giving back to these five great charities. We hope that HackForGood will continue to grow and reach even more organisations in the coming years” commented Chairperson Aine Collins

Cork Foundation would like to thank all the volunteers and organisations for their involvement and for helping to make the day a tremendous success.
