Tech Swabbing in San Fran
With so many cool, interesting tech companies in the Bay Area, we knew we had to set up Donor Jams at some corporate headquarters to try to sign up as many donors as possible (and to see if they really ride around on scooters and eat incredible food and have all kinds of crazy perks- note: it’s true).
We spoke to the super fun team at Peek, a travel website and app that helps you customize and maximize your travel experiences based on your interests (brilliant):
We also went to Castlight and signed up some awesome people who are helping simplify and streamline healthcare (again, brilliant). We were joined at Castlight by Vanessa, a cutie who is fighting aplastic anemia like Sam:
