If you had the chance to do something (that you do every year) and help a great cause at the same time, would you do it?
Yes, that was a rhetorical question, but do me a favor, answer it anyway.
My answer would be a resounding ‘yes’. I try to give back to the Salesforce community every chance I get. So when Cirrus Insight emailed to tell me I was their weekly winner of a free Dreamforce pass, my thoughts immediately turned to helping others. I didn’t need the pass to Dreamforce. I was already registered and would be attending. I could give the pass to someone who wants to attend, but that would only be helping one person.
What I decided to do was to hold an auction with proceeds benefiting Project Night Night. I thought that could help many people. One lucky person would still be able to attend Dreamforce, and many homeless children could get a NightNight pack from Project Night Night.
Do you still need a pass to Dreamforce? Do you want to help children have sweeter dreams at the same time? If you answered yes to both questions, please go here: DF15Pass for Project Night Night and place your bid. The high bid, at the time I published this blog post was $500. To see the current high bid, follow me on Twitter and search for #DF15PassProjectNight2XHIGHBID. The bidding closes at 11:59 PM on Saturday, August 8, 2015.
