Snuffie <3 Gov

At Socrata, we love our hard-working, forward-thinking, passionate customers.

They truly are changing the way governments interact with their citizens, increasing public trust, and building the framework for the next generation of government. They're putting in the extra hours, taking risks, and pushing their organizations to change because they believe it's the right thing to do.

There's a problem though. We don't thank them enough.

We want to change this. That's why we're offering you a chance to...

"Thank a Govie"


How do you do it? We offer a few simple ways:

Send a thank you card!

Get yourself an awesome card and write a note about how their open data efforts helped you out. Mail it to:

Thank a Govie
c/o Socrata
705 5th Ave South, Suite 600
Seattle, WA 98104

Make sure you include some details on who you'd like to thank, even if you don't know what individual needs the thanking. We'll try our hardest to make sure your card gets to the right person, even if they're not a Socrata customer, and the postage is on us.

We'd like to share some of your awesome messages with the world. So if it's not OK for us to take a picture of your card and share it here, please let us know.

Also, if you provide your return address, we'll send you a fun Snuffleupadata sticker for you to show off your love!

Tweet it!

Tweet with the hashtag #thankagovie to show your thanks. If you know who deserves the credit, make sure you @reply them as well!
