At UberConference, we believe all children deserve a normal life. Sadly, every year, over 170,000 children are born with a cleft lip or palate. Most in the developing world cannot afford the necessary surgery to correct this. They cannot eat or speak properly and many are not allowed to go to school or hold a job.

The good news is every single child with a cleft lip or palate can be helped with surgery that costs as little as $250!

That’s why we’ve teamed up with Smile Train this Holiday season to help them reach their goal to help over one million of these children who would not normally be able to get the surgery they need.

UberConference will give $5000 to the cause this Holiday season. With the help of a little star power from Kevin RoseCauses.com and caring fans like you, we hope to raise a matching donation of $5000 as well. That’s a total of $10,000 we’d like to be able to give to this worthy cause. Any amount you can give helps. If you can only give $1 we understand, but the more you can afford to help out, the more children we can help out, too. Please help Smile Train give the gift of a normal childhood to over 1 million children worldwide. Donate with us now and help give over 1 million children a better life.

How to Get Your Whole Company Hooked on Social with Michael Brito

SVP of Social Business for Edelman, Michael Brito, is a social media rockstar with over 30k Twitter followers and a book currently out on Amazon Smart Business Social Business. He’s one of the main forces behind social for companies like Hewlett Packard and Intel, and one of the foremost experts in the country when it comes to B2B social media marketing. Host of our Ubercast, Sarah Buhr, sat down to chat with Michael at the Edelman offices in downtown San Francisco about some key ways to get everyone you work with on board with the social program.

Tips:

  • Get engineers and others in the company involved. Ask them to write a blog post and actively talk about their expertise.
  • Create a social media employee guide to help those in the company understand messaging and social media etiquette
  • Encourage employees to actively tweet out and post company messaging on their own social channels.

He’s a game changer and an innovator…and all over the place. Ben Huh, the guy behind LOL catsand many other internet crazes is a busy man. He says he takes at least 2 or 3 conference calls a day…and hates them! Major downer for a guy having so much fun at work. We discussed what’s wrong with the current tech and how apps like ours at UberConference (and a few others) are changing that.

Nominations are open for the Crunchies, TechCrunch’s annual competition and award ceremony to recognize and celebrate the most compelling startups of the year.  This year there’s a new category on the list, Sexiest Enterprise Startup. We’re in it to win it on this one, but we need your help to get there. If you think we’re sexy and you know it, please take a moment to head on over to the Crunchies nominationspage and vote for us for Sexiest Enterprise Startup 2012!

Why vote for us:
Enterprise software doesn’t need to be ugly and clunky.  At ÜberConference, good design and ease of use has been a central part of our philosophy, and it has paid off.  Before our launch, little had changed in audio conferencing in years…people would carry around cards with long PIN numbers and struggle through rounds of “Who just joined?” and “Who said that?” during calls.

ÜberConference’s social caller ID and unique visual interface changes all of that.  Everyone invited to an UberConference call can dial in without PINs, see who’s on the call and who’s talking, and learn more about others on the call.  Plus, call organizers can run meetings smoothly with a full set of features you can just click to use.

ÜberConference is free to try and businesses and enterprises of all sizes can sign up for and manage multiple accounts as easily as managing email through a simple online tool. You can even use it right from Gmail if your company uses Google Apps.

How sexy is that?

Help support the cause by heading over to the Crunchies nominations. Every vote counts.  You can vote multiple times (once a day), so please vote today and keep voting!
