At SitePoint HQ we regularly work on ideas – big and small – that could help you guys in some way (or even just brighten up your day). We call this innovation program Triple Time (because it lasts 3 days each month). One example of a successful project that was launched recently is capn.me, which you may have seen. If not, check it out.
A couple the team have been working on an idea that we'd like to float to you guys before we take it much further. It’s called ‘Code Volunteer’ and the premise is this:
If people have a web project that they can't afford to pay for or don’t have the skills to complete (ideally not-for-profit organisation e.g. school, charity, local community group) they can list their project and we pair them up with talented designers/developers/marketers that are willing to volunteer some time and skills for a worthy cause.
What we're asking you is whether you know of any individuals, friends, family, colleagues or organisations (ideally non-for profit due to it being a volunteer program) that need help with their web presence. They could be located anywhere in the world.
Here’s what we need you to do:
If you know of someone that might fit the bill and needs help (whether it be a site built from scratch, tweaks to an existing site, help with a mobile presence, marketing… anything really) then please let us know by replying here with a “yes I know someone located in <country>”.
At this stage we're not asking for any kind of commitment, this is purely an exercise to gauge interest.
