With the help of our customers, friends, family and Raise the Roof Inc., Johnston Technologies has advanced to Social Madness’ National Competition! The first round of the National Competition begins July 16th.
The first round will consist of 44 companies competing against each other for the top 20 spots. Once in the top 20, the second round will determine the top 8 companies and seed them for the third round of head-to-head bracket style competition. Beginning in round 3, each week will determine one winner from the two competing against each other and advance them to the next round until a champion is crowned.
The winner of the National Competition in each size (Small, Medium and Large) will receive a $10,000 donation to the charity of their choice. This year, Johnston Technologies will be competing for Raise the Roof Inc.
Raise the Roof is an organization that helps fund food, shelter and education for children in remote areas of Uganda. They also organize mission trips with churches to send volunteers to Uganda to help build schools, wells and other critical infrastructure that we take for granted in the United States.
Our goal for the Social Madness Competition is to raise awareness of this terrific organization and help them raise the money necessary to support these villages for years to come.
