As we produced our first Impact Report earlier this year, we learned that our friends and supporters would like to receive more information about what we do, so we’d like to update you on some of our exciting growth so far this year. A few highlights have been finding Accountability Ambassadors to bring the Lab to 3 new countries, co-hosting the Honesty Oscars, and establishing an OpenGov Hub in Nepal!Honesty Oscars

BMWAwards- We are happy to announce that the Lab received the BMW Foundation Responsible Leaders Award, was named a Great Nonprofits 2014 Top-Rated Nonprofit, won the Making All Voices Count Grand Challenge for Development, and was selected to participate in the Points of Light Civic Accelerator.

Crowdfunding- Did you know you can give on Twitter? We’re a running a crowdfunding campaign with tinygive to raise $2,000 to enable our Community Justice Teams to bring their great work to another of Liberia’s poorest neighborhoods. Over the past 5 days, we’ve raised $908 from 43 donors. Please join in and help us reach our goal by Wednesday! A simple tweet and a few dollars can go a long way– click here to learn more.
