DreamWakers is a nonprofit that uses free video technologies to connect underserved classrooms to diverse and dynamic professionals . Their mission is that students can't be what they can't see. I support DreamWakers because I believe that education is the most powerful tool we have to create change in society. If students know that regardless of where they live or how much money their family makes, that they can be whatever they want to be, they will have the courage to dream beyond the confines of their SES. I support this organization because the best way to leverage the power of technology is to increase accessibility and the spread of information. This is precisely what DreamWakers does twofold by connecting students to inspiring and relatable professionals and doing so for free.

The mission of DreamWakers is to harness free video technology to connect high-need public school students across the country with successful and dynamic professionals, across every career, and from a multitude of backgrounds. These 45-minute video "flashchats" give students the chance to dream big and learn about the real-world applications of their everyday classroom learning. For our incredible speakers, it's an easy and efficient way to give back to these high-need communities across the country. Each day, we aspire open the eyes and minds of students to tap into their own potential and future careers.

This #GivingTuesday, I am especially honored to work for this amazing organization - and I #DreamWake every day so that every student can make his or her dream become reALITY!

DreamWakers is a nonprofit that uses free and existing video technology to connect under-served classrooms to diverse and dynamic professionals. Their 45-minute virtual conversations are designed to shed light on the real-world applicability of school curriculum and inspire students to dream big for themselves. I give to DreamWakers because I believe that students across the country should know that they have every opportunity available to them regardless of their zip code or socioeconomic status. In supporting DreamWakers I know that I am contributing to a critical part of the solution in improving our education system.

I've watched DreamWakers grow from early on and the passion of the organization's members is something every non-profit should have. It's truly incredible to see how many lives they're changing and the pace at which they're growing.
