Southern Maryland GiveCamp '11

It's December 1st and, I hope, everyone is getting into the Holiday spirit. I have been working hard at getting my outdoor Christmas decorations up and working and this as really put me, yes me, in a good mood. Today is also the day we start reviewing the application that we received for our 2nd annual SoMDGC (Southern Maryland GiveCamp). I'm excited because, not only do we have 19 potential non-profits hoping that we choose their organization, but I also have a great committee that is helping me this year. Starting today the Non-Profit coordinators are going to start reviewing the applications, some time this month they should be in contact with the representative and next month we start gathering requirements.

After looking at the requests; it looks like we have 10 new website, 8 donor/volunteer Data Base, an Intranet, and to expand one website(yes I know this is more then 19). I also have some very exciting ideas for some of these applications, if you want to know then you'll have to sign up as a volunteer.
