Interact Intranet Announces War Child as Overall Winner of Annual Nonprofit Competition
(Press release, Feb. 25, 2015) — Interact Intranet, the intelligent intranet software company, announced War Child as the overall winner of its annual Nonprofit Competition. War Child is a small, U.K.-based organization providing life-changing support to the most vulnerable children whose families, communities and schools have been torn apart by war. As the overall winner of Interact's global Nonprofit Competition, it wins a fantastic Interact Intranet software package worth $60,000, which will include consultancy, training and project management.
Nigel Danson, Interact CEO comments, "Choosing this year's nonprofit competition winner has been our toughest yet, with each of the seven finalists a worthy cause in their own right. The winner was chosen on a combination of unique votes, and the quality of their submission judged against the entry criteria by a panel of intranet experts. We are overwhelmed by the support the public has shown to the finalists with votes totaling in excess of 100,000 over the three weeks that the polls have been live."
War Child Digital Manager Dave O'Carroll expressed his delight on being announced as the winner: "Everyone here at War Child is ecstatic at being announced as the winner of Interact's nonprofit competition and cannot wait to get started on our new intranet project. The team are all really looking forward to having an intranet that will enable us to engage better with our staff and local partners worldwide, allowing us to protect more children who find themselves caught up in the horror of war."
The six runners-up are also set to benefit with Interact pledging software packages that include a free cloud-based intranet, and consultancy for each cause, due to the excellent quality of their entries as highlighted by Danson: "It was the only decision the judging panel could agree on, as each nonprofit is such a worthy cause and had put so much effort into their entry."
Interact works with hundreds of nonprofits across the globe helping them increase their charitable spend by implementing an intranet that helps them improve efficiencies and enable communication and collaboration across their disparate workforce of employees and volunteers.
This competition is an annual Interact event open to nonprofits across the globe. Previous winners include The Children's Trust, Acorn Children's Hospice, Maggie's Cancer Centres and North Devon Hospice.
Although it's too late to vote, it's worth having a look at the videos to see just what a difference an intranet can make to each of these well-deserving charitable organizations. http://www.interact-intranet.com/meet-interact-7
