High Five! The Where Do You Give? Design Competition Is Officially Open for Submissions!

Jan 10, 2012 by Sasha  |  Project Updates

This is it, folks. The design competition is officially open for submissions.

Will you show us the future of giving?

Where Do You Give? challenges artists, designers and conceptual thinkers to create an updated vehicle for giving in the 21st century that inspires a national conversation among all of us who seek to engage more deeply with our communities—be they geographic, ethnic, national or other—about where we give, to whom and why.

Reimagine the tzedakah box—an ancient ritual object used to collect money for charitable causes—and you could win $2500, be featured in a national exhibit and have an opportunity to travel internationally to meet with some of AJWS’s grassroots partners.

There are many ways to participate:

Enter our NATIONAL DESIGN COMPETITION and re-imagine the traditional tzedakah box, whether it be physical, virtual or wholly conceptual. You can win $2500 and a chance to travel with AJWS!

Tell all of your friends, family, colleagues and followers.

Upload your own video about philanthropy or offer your own personal memories of giving on our website.

Learn and teach with our complimentary educational materials.

However you choose to engage with Where Do You Give? I hope that it is meaningful. As always, we would love to hear about it! Please send any feedback, photos and comments to .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) and we will feature you on our website!

Thank you and all the best,

Sasha and the Where Do You Give? Team

Aside from wanting to be and play outside all of the time, she is interested in radical reconceptualizations of ancient traditions and in deeply exploring why we give, where we give, how we give and what it means to define giving tzedakah as pursuing justice.
