Social news site Reddit has launched a new project called Feed A Need. Instead of asking for monetary donations, this project is asking people to donate a few hours of their skills & energy. Feed A Need is accepting people from all professions – you might be a programmer, designer, artist, lawyer, geology professor, bacon cooker, or anyone else. If you can spare at least 2 hours for a good cause, then consider participating in this charity drive.
In order to participate you must be a registered member of Reddit and dedicate at least 2 hours on a Feed A Need charity project before the deadline on February 14th, 2009. There are several prizes to be won which include Xbox 360, games, Intel Atom Processor powered PC’s, discount coupons, T-shirts and such sponsored by the project partners.
If you want to volunteer, you need to fill up a form and mention your skills. According to the skills you have you will be matched up with a project for a needy charity. Currently, there are about 50 non-profit jobs lined up and waiting for your help. Free Software Foundation, Seeing Hands
(a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing reading material to blind children in a format that both the sighted and the visually impaired can enjoy) and GNOME Foundation, to name a few.
You can vote up your favorite or even submit one of your own non-profits.
