Love HOWie do it!

Remember your first HOW Conference? It blew your mind with amazing sessions and topics. You discovered that these are your people, who then became your extended family. You came home ready to design the world. As a HOW veteran, you now have the opportunity to share that HOW love by helping to send this newbie to HOW. Let's show her HOWie do it!

Each donation helps, no matter the size—even $10. Every person who donates will get special recognition at the conference, and a little something to add onto your HOW badge that designates you as someone who donated. Even if you're unable to contribute, help us spread the word to other HOW veterans who know the value of attending.

The winner, with 389 votes, was Regina Maldonado. How was she chosen? People who have not been to HOW before answered the question, "Why should you go to HOW?" with either a one-page written answer, an 8.5 x 11" (or smaller) poster, or a 30-second (or less) video. A group of this year's HOW speakers curated the answers down to eight. Then the voting was opened up to the public through Facebook. 

HOW is not the least expensive conference—but it is the best conference for learning, growing, and connecting. For a Big Ticket (entrance to all four conferences), airfare into San Francisco, and a hotel room for five nights, we're asking to raise $3500. That's just 35 people, donating $100 each. If we raise $7000, two people can go, etc. Any amount between $3500 and $7000 will be rolled over into next year's grant.

Thank you in advance for your generous contribution!
