  • We donated more than $35,000 worth of products to schools nationwide.

Web and Social:

  • Site traffic grew 20% per month.
  • GEI’s editorial team published 120 blog posts, several of which received more than 3,000 reads.
  • We hit more than 12K followers on Twitter, and made 1.5 million impressions in one month.


  • In response to feedback from educators, we began evaluating educational apps.
