48in48 2018: Atlanta and New York

Well, it happened! We pulled off our 4th Atlanta 48in48 event and our 3rd New York event…on the same weekend!

Once again, I was incredibly moved watching the hundreds of volunteers in Atlanta working tirelessly (well, maybe tired-ly) for 48 straight hours to pull off this amazing feat. As I was giving a tour to a friend of mine who had never been before, he looked at me at one point and asked, “Who ARE all these people?” And my response was simple: “They’re just people that want to do some good in the world, and 48in48 is the vehicle for them to do it.”

Here’s what the Atlanta event looked like:

And below is a video that the IBM team at our New York event produced which gives a good recap of the event:
