SIGNAL Accelerate Social Good with Child Helpline International

The Great Digital Acceleration is changing the way social impact organizations build positive change at global scale. Over the past several months we’ve seen nonprofits from all around the world build innovative solutions to support people impacted by the pandemic and maintain program services using digital technology. At SIGNAL, you can see these solutions in action and help build for good too.

Today we're sharing a new way that SIGNAL attendees can support social impact in three simple steps. Here’s how you can get engaged.

Step 1: Grab a ticket and learn from leading changemakers

Join us to see how nonprofits use communications to change lives for good. You can register for a free Explorer pass, which includes live access to 25+ product and content sessions, new product announcements, and special guests. Here are a few of the exciting leaders in social impact speaking at SIGNAL.

Step 2: Take action for good

When you register for an All-Access pass, you can choose to donate the cost of your gift kit to Child Helpline International, who is helping at risk children reach help right when they need it.

Child Helpline International unites 173 child helplines in 142 countries around the world. During COVID-19, child helplines are experiencing on average 30% more calls, while at the same time facing challenges with operating helplines from home. Your support will help them adapt to remote work and respond to more people who need help.

Step 3: Support the community and we’ll help

Alongside attendee contributions, this month Twilio is donating $200,000 to support the vital work at Child Helpline International. Together, we can help ensure that every child gets the help they need, right when they need it.

We hope you’ll join us at SIGNAL and help accelerate social good. And stay tuned - when you join the event, we’ll have additional ways that you can get involved, support social impact organizations, and help build for good. Can’t wait to see you there!
