KidsTek Also Recognized as Runner-up for Exceptional Netizenship in the Denver Community
IPv4.Global, an operating unit of Hilco Streambank (www.hilcostreambank.com), today announces that PCs for People has won the first-ever IPv4.Global Good Netizen Award, followed by runner-up organization, KidsTek. Both non-profit organizations will receive a financial contribution from a donation pool generated by IPv4Auctions.com sales in proportion commensurate with final voting.
“We are delighted to announce that PCs for People is the winner of the inaugural IPv4.Global Good Netizen Awards. By bridging the digital divide throughout the Denver area with computers for low-income families and individuals, PCs for People truly embodies what it means to be a ‘good netizen,’ going above and beyond to enhance its community,” says Gabe Fried, Chief Executive Officer, Hilco Streambank. “We also would like to congratulate KidsTek for achieving runner-up, and look forward to providing both of these exceptional organizations with financial awards to support their ongoing missions.”
The IPv4.Global Good Netizen Awards are designed to recognize and celebrate local non-profit organizations that have demonstrated exceptional “netizenship” throughout their communities, including engaging in the promotion of internet access for all, supporting and funding internet and technology education, and contributing to open and ethical internet business practices. IPv4.Global will contribute one percent (1%) of its gross sales on the IPv4Auctions.com platform from July 8 through July 14, dividing the proceeds between PCs for People and KidsTek proportionate to the number of votes each organization received.
“We are honored and humbled to be recognized as the first-ever IPv4.Global Good Netizen Award winner. This opportunity has provided us not only with additional funding to support our goal of bridging Denver’s digital divide, but has created a platform to generate awareness on both a local and national level,” explains Julie Seltz, Denver Executive Director, PCs for People. “We would also like to extend our congratulations to KidsTek, as we all work together to provide access to the education and resources necessary to enhance the Denver community.”
“We are grateful to receive the honor of runner-up for the inaugural IPv4.Global Good Netizen Awards. When companies like IPv4.Global step up and give nonprofits like KidsTek a platform, it makes the world a better place and helps us fulfill our mission,” says Aimee Charlton, Executive Director, KidsTek. “We’d like to congratulate PCs for People as this year’s winner, and we look forward to continuing our work to promote digital literacy and provide our youth with access to technology.”
