Embrace Crowdfundathon! 3/1/14

Over the weekend, Stanford Design Initiative launched its first crowdfundathon in partnership with Indiegogo and Embrace!

The challenge: create an Indiegogo campaign for Embrace’s project to design, implement, and adapt a neonatal education program for healthcare workers and mothers in vulnerable communities around the world.

Two teams competed intensely through Saturday to put together a solid crowdfunding campaign. The result of our efforts is Embrace Life, One at a Time. Click the widget below to check out and contribute to our campaign!
