    The previous few weeks of Code for a Cause 3 campaign were simply amazing! We are truly impressed by the quality of ideas we have received during the first phase. 

    When we started this campaign three years ago, we believed that there are like-minded people in our community, who want to be a part of positive changes in our city. This year, for the third time this proved to be right! 

    We would like to say a big Thank You to all of you enthusiasts who submitted inspirational ideas! Now we are ready to move to phase #2: The Voting. :-)


    What Should You Know about Voting for CFAC3?

    What Should You Know about Voting for CFAC3? 

    After our colleagues have analysed the ins and outs of all the submitted ideas, they have chosen 17 projects that can move to the second phase. Brace yourself for phase #2 because now, we need YOUR help! You get to decide which projects will have the biggest impact on our local community.

    The voting will start on Monday, July the 22nd, on our Facebook page, and it will finish on Sunday, July the 28th at 23:59 CET

    Like in the previous years, we have kept the rules rather simple: Give your vote by liking the project’s photo or by leaving a comment below the image which represents that particular project.
