Cleveland GiveCamp 2014
21 Non-Profits Helped
July 18-20, 2014

The 2014 Cleveland GiveCamp was extremely successful - batting 1.000 in assisting 21 of ther 21 non-profits chosen.

I did not plan on filming the closing ceremony synopses so did not set up a tripod or even get a close enough seat. So the videos are shaky and blocked by people occasionally. But they show enough for you to get an idea of what was done for the 21 groups.

Next year I will have the tripod and a clear shot. Here are short videos (Andy Craze was in charge of keeping the presentations short) of each of the projects in alphabetical order.
