Until Oct 4th we are donating our homepage to Playing for Change.
LinkedIn is excited to participate in Playing for Change Day for the second time. This year, we are participating with KMVT 15 and will have two consecutive events. The kickoff event is on October 3rd at LinkedIn HQ and the second is October 4th at KMVT 15 in Mountain View.
Last year, we raised $9,000 for Playing for Change and had 5 LinkedIn offices participate from around the world. We have developed quite the network of LinkedIn employees and friends that are passionate about Playing For Change and are looking forward to participating again this year. This past year, we also had the privilege to meet the folks from KMVT 15 and found there's a lot of synergy between our organizations, so we cannot wait to combine forces for Playing For Change Day this year.
KMVT 15 is Mountain View's community media center and television station. For more than 30 years, KMVT 15 has been a deeply-cherished institution, providing training in video production, media literacy, and a voice for hundreds of thousands of San Francisco Bay area residents as an independent 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Their mission is to provide media literacy education, hands-on training, and civic engagement. They serve as a resource to narrow the digital divide through the use of technology, and provide the community with the tools to create media and utilize technology in a socially responsible manner. Together with KMVT 15, we hope to connect friends and colleagues with an opportunity to make a positive impact on the world through the universal language of music.
We are excited to announce that the youth participating in KMTV 15's camps will be a major part of Playing For Change Day, playing music as well as working closely with the LinkedIn Media Productions team to create an amazing show.
This family-friendly event will take place at LinkedIn Headquarters in Mountain View on Friday, October 3rd. Live 105 will be there with prizes and entertainment in addition to all of the wonderful bands and local musicians. On October 4th, KMVT 15 will host another event with even more live music and entertainment.
