PRESS RELEASE

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

BREA, California – TickTalk announces the fifth installment of  TickTalk Gives, a commitment to creating a better future for children through charitable endeavors each month. In honor of Black History Month, starting on February 1st, TickTalk will donate a portion of every TickTalk 4 smartwatch purchase to Black Girls CODE, a nonprofit organization dedicated to changing the face of the tech industry by training young girls of color with the skills to lead, create, and innovate in science, technology, engineering, and math. 

Dedicated to empowering young girls and closing the racial and gender gap in tech, Black Girls CODE is building pathways by training in web, game, mobile, app, and robotics design to engineer their own futures. Donations to the non-profit help girls in over 20 cities nationwide pursue their interests in coding through programs that mentor and teach, while building relationships with entrepreneurs.

“We’d like to see the face of technology diversified across all ages, races, and genders”, said President and Co-Founder, Ying Gong. We hope to help more young women of color by empowering them with equal opportunities–creating stronger economies, innovative technology, and a harmonious society”.

As a woman and minority-owned company, TickTalk is dedicated to creating a more equitable future for children. TickTalk hopes the efforts will inspire others to give back to their community while educating others on the gender and racial gaps present in the tech industry. To help support girls in their early tech careers, supporters can place an order on TickTalk’s website and a portion of every purchase will automatically be donated to Black Girls CODE at the end of the month. Donations can also be made directly on Black Girls CODE’s website. To learn more, please contact press@myticktalk.com.
