Workplace Wellness Concepting Donation

Many of you will have noticed that the OpenIDEO site was down temporarily before Christmas. We were faced with some pretty serious server issues – but we're glad to report, that with the help of Santa's elves, we've been able to get the site back up and running smoothly. We hope you'll be back to join us on the Workplace Wellness Challenge for collaboration-as-usual!

A super unfortunate side of the outage was that some data may have been lost since Sunday – including comments, concepts and applause. If you added a concept over this time, we hope you might find the time and inclination to repost it. To remedy this and to celebrate another year of fantastic collaboration on OpenIDEO, we will donate $10 to The International Diabetes Federation for every concept added from today till the 10th of January. We've also radically improved how our site is hosted at Amazon Web Services to ensure that this doesn't happen again.

Update: We were so stoked about our community's awesome support on the back of our pre-Christmas site outage that we're upgrading our donation to $2420 to further help the International Diabetes Foundation: $10 for each concept submitted right throughout the challenge. Beyond wanting to help support workplace wellness, we've loved the activity and energy that went into the Concepting phase despite our temporary server outage. Thanks for all your stellar contributions and generosity.
