We received such an overwhelming amount of positive feedback for our 2nd Language Access Conference. Part of the proceeds was donated to several industry non-profits. Here are some of their thank you notes. This wouldn’t have been possible without all of the attendees and sponsors. Thank you for making the world a better place!
“Thank you so much for all your support! I wanted to personally thank you for your generous donation to TWB’s Holiday Fundraising Campaign “ Language for a Just World”. With your help, we were able to exceed our fundraising goal and raise $118,000. This is an outstanding achievement in a very difficult year.
Your donation helps us build a more just world, through language:
- Translate critical COVID-19 information into over 150 languages
- Develop multilingual chatbots that allow speakers of marginalized languages access the information they need, when they want it, in their language
- Build a more equitable world that allows everyone access information and share their voice, no matter what language they speak
Many of us were grappling with a lot of uncertainty and unexpected challenges in 2020. I really appreciate your commitment to helping the world’s most vulnerable people get vital information in a language they can understand. Without your support, we could not do this much needed work.
Although I don’t know what will happen next in these tumultuous times, I do know that TWB will be ready to face whatever comes next because of the support we have received from the whole team at Interpreter Education Online. Thanks to you we will continue to share information, rapidly respond, and listen to people across the globe in a multitude of languages. We very much appreciate your support, and hope that we can continue to count on you. Thank you.
