WaterBrick International made a pubic debut at the 2009 Annual Conference for the Association of Corporate Contribution Professionals. Throughout the course of this conference WaterBrick was able to interface with representatives of many Fortune 500 companies in order to discuss how parties could work together to fulfill humanitarian goals while enabling America’s leading companies to take a proactive role in making such work possible. One highlight for WaterBrick at the conference was an introduction to Global Giving – a 501c3 charitable organization that brings donors and humanitarian projects together.
WaterBrick was also the first social entrepreneur to become involved with the ACCP, which traditionally focuses upon For-Profit, Fortune 500 companies for membership. WaterBrick has a result of the conference been invited to the upcoming Africa Resource Group meeting to be held in New York, NY later this year.
