Cloudmeter announced their "Wish Upon a Cloud" campaign today. The company will make a $1 contribution to the Foundation for Sustainable Development for every tweet shared through their Twitter page at http://www.cloudmeter.com/wish
Cloudmeter, a pioneer in the area of big data capture and analytics, has had a great year of growth and expansion. The "Wish Upon a Cloud" campaign idea came out of a team holiday planning meeting earlier this month. The group decided to share their good fortune, and raise social awareness, through a social media campaign.
Founded in 1995, Foundation for Sustainable Development (FSD) supports community organizations around the world to address local health, social, environmental, and economic issues. FSD reduces global poverty by providing over 300 grassroots community organizations in Latin America, Africa and Asia with training, volunteers and funding to create effective social programs that build on local resources.
Participants in the campaign share a wish such as, "World Peace" or "Education for Girls" or "Economic Sustainability" via twitter. For each wish Cloudmeter, Inc. will make a $1 donation to FSD.
"As a company that helps clients process big data daily, we know how challenging it can be to parse out the one piece of information needed to effect change" Said Michael Dickey, Founder and CEO of Cloudmeter. "FSD has been dealing with sweeping, global, issues for years by supporting small, effective programs that can create sustainable change. They know how to sort data-human data- in a way that helps. We’ve had a great year and we think they’re the right organization to support."
Mr. Dickey formerly served as a board member for the Foundation, and continues to volunteer his time to help them with technology-related issues and initiatives.
Mireille Cronin Mather, Executive Director, FSD, said, "We always welcome financial support, especially from a team as aware and innovative at Cloudmeter, but we are more excited about Cloudmeter’s desire to spread the word about our work and to help us educate people about the effectiveness of supporting small organizations around the world. One person, one dollar, really can make a difference."
The Wish Upon a Cloud campaign will continue through January 10th 2012. The goal is to reach the maximum donation of amount of $5,000 by end of the campaign.
