We won the first-ever Startup Pushup Charity Challenge — can we get a WOOP WOOP!

Udemy, HotelTonight, Zaarly, GitHub and your very own 99designs each selected 5 employees to compete in the event. After a few weeks of dedicated fundraising and Twitter smack talk, we did 100 effortless pushups for our charity DonorsChoose.org.

Appreciating our Australian origins (we were founded in Melbourne back in 2008), our team dressed as Crocodile Dundee while community team member Stephanie strutted a Kangaroo pajama jump suit.

And of course a BIG THANKS to those who donated, including our friends at Getaround!
