Keynotes Day[2] - Jeff Lawson

This past year we watched some incredible companies launch truly powerful products, from fighting human trafficking to reinvigorating a city through art. These products were amplified through communications, and we believe nonprofits should have access to communications technologies to make a greater impact. Today we’re excited to announce our initiative, A Billion Messages for Good, providing nonprofits with donated and discounted Twilio services.
