As 2012 winds to a close, we’d like to take time to reflect on the amazing organizations we’ve had the privilege of working with this year through 99nonprofits. Since the program’s July 2012 launch, 99designs has connected with 24 not-for-profit groups, learned about their missions and witnessed the wonderful work they do for the communities they serve.
And we’re not done yet! Today we selected the first of 12 additional organizations to participate through 99nonprofits’ 12 Days of Design Giveaway! Each day from now through December 21st we’ll choose an organization to receive a free design contest of their choice. To kick off the initiative, we’re pleased to present you with the great designs some of our past 99nonprofits participants have received from our talented community of designers. Read on for some inspiration – and tell your nonprofit pals to apply for our 12 Days of Design Giveaway now!
