Southern Maryland GiveCamp 11 - Charity Possible Selections

On December 8th, 2010 the Southern Maryland Give Camp Committee gathered in a coffee shop and talked about the non-profits that are requesting our services this time.

I would like to take this time to see if there is an organization that can help out "The Diaper Drive". This non-profit did request help from us; however, they are located in Minneapolis,Minnesota. Because of their location in relationship to ours, it would have been extremely difficult to service their needs properly. So if anyone in that area is putting on a givecamp, please message me and I'll give you their contact information.

After reviewing the applications last night we found out that we may have a lot of interesting work. Some of this work includes SmartPhone development, volunteer tracking software and of course a few website. We had a few requests for "Learning about Social Media", things like twitter and Facebook fan pages and a couple of logo's.

This is a list of possible charities, we are going to gather their requirments - to make sure we can do the work in the weekend - then make our final selection.

The greatest gift you can possible give is your time.
