National Give Camp Days | Oct 21-23 2011

If you’ve never heard of a give camp you should read into it. The gist of a camp is simple: find charities that need IT solutions, gather up some developers and designers and spend the weekend building solutions.

These camps have seen rising popularity and now Microsoft is throwing some corporate weight behind these events as well. Take a look at the announcement on GiveCamp.org to see what resources Microsoft is offering.

Give Camps are not only a great way for knowledge workers to contribute to their community but it’s a really nice way to make connections with like-minded people. I would encourage everyone to keep an eye out to see if a Give Camp is being organized nearby.

Graciously yours — for the weekend,
-Erik
