Day With Daddy has reached some major milestones since our launch at SXSW earlier this year:

  • raised over $2000 during our launch event at SXSW 2013 to assist with developing our educational programs
  • filled 3 board seats and on track to fill 2 more by year end 2013
  • brought on 3 volunteers for our community online team
  • on track to secure our 501c3 tax-exempt status by SXSW 2014
  • secured our 1st home for our HQ office in the eclectic vibrant community of East Austin, Texas, just 1 block from downtown and the convention center

We owe our early success to our remarkable community – online and offline – we wouldn’t be where we are without your help! Our community of family advocates is what allows Day With Daddy to serve our communities.

We turn to you now because we need your help – in the form of a vote. Day With Daddy is in the running for ONE speaker spot at South by Southwest (SXSW) for 2014 and need your assistance to get there.

SXSW is the design, tech and business conference of the year – a multi-day event in Austin, Texas highlighting industry leaders. Community voting is more than just a rallying cry, it’s how the organizers of the event know that we’re loved and supported by the people we strive to help.

On Monday, August 19 at 1:00PM CST, the PanelPicker voting interface is scheduled to go live and will close on Friday, September 6 (11:59 PM CST).
