The contest will allow voting on the dorkiest and funniest dance routines, with Vitaver donating $10,000 to charity in name of the winners which will increase with the participation of additional corporate sponsors adding award money to be given on their names to the three charities.
Participating charities are American Red Cross, American Cancer Society and the Salvation Army.
IT and Tech professionals are encouraged to enter the video competition and show their best geek dance moves. The rules are simple:
1) record your dorkiest dance moves to a song of your choice,
2) select charity to which you want to contribute money,
3) submit the entry through the DancingGeeks.com website.
The online content will be accepting submissions via DancingGeeks.com from November 15 through August 14, 2014. Voting ends on August 15th, with first, second, and third place winners announced on September 1, 2014.
In 2013, we donated to ClassWish.org - $5,000, Children Cancer Research Fund - $3,000, Canines for Disabled Kids - $2,000.
“We want to bring the IT/Tech community together for charity in the most hilarious way we know possible,” says Pablo Vitaver, CEO of Vitaver. “The goal is to support nonprofits that are doing great work, while also supporting our fellow business community. And, we want to dispel the myth that geeks can’t dance!”
Vitaver is encouraging IT professionals to “moonwalk their way into first place in the name of charity,” and will be donating $10,000 to various nonprofits on behalf of the first, second, and third place Dancing Geek video winners.
