Hack-A-Wish Hackathon

by Dollar Shave Club

A Social Impact Hackathon with the goal to grant more "wishes" to kids battling critical illness right here in LA. Make-A-Wish Greater Los Angeles is facing a number of challenges that make it difficult to serve the hundreds of wish kids who are waiting for a wish. By giving a child their wish, it gives them hope and for many kids, it can be a major turning point in their treatment. Our hope is that we will attract the most talented people in our community to help solve the challenges facing this very important organization.

Why a Hackathon? A Hackathon brings together teams to brainstorm and create real-time, relevant solutions. Our hope is that the Hack-A-Wish attracts techies, creatives, students, business leaders, community activists – really anyone who wants to make a difference in a child’s life by spending a weekend having fun, meeting new people, networking, and building creative solutions.
