#UpgradeYourWorld: Celebrating People & Organizations Who Do Great Things

On July 29, we made Windows 10 available to the world, across 190 countries, as a free upgrade.

As we deliver Windows 10, and its many, many innovations to the world, we will also celebrate the human spirt and the people and organizations who empower others.

Microsoft is excited to partner with 10 global nonprofits to tell the inspiring stories of how they are ‘upgrading the world’ by addressing pressing issues such as poverty, HIV, education, humanitarian relief and the environment. Nine of these organizations have already been selected, and the 10th will be selected by the public.


For more information on the global nonprofits we are supporting and how you can help select one more, visit the #UpgradeYourWorld website. To vote, you need to tag (@) the name of your favorite global nonprofit with the hashtags #UpgradeYourWorld and #vote on Twitter, Facebook or Instagram. The organization with the most votes, and that meets eligibility criteria, will be selected as our 10th global nonprofit partner for this campaign.   

Around the world, tens of thousands of Microsoft employees will strive to upgrade their part of the world. And, we’re asking our partners to join us. This will start a year-long initiative, where we will celebrate and support the most important upgrades of all – the ones you do in your communities and around the world every day. We’d love for you to join us.

What will you do to #UpgradeYourWorld?
