Build a website for your favourite charity
When: 1 – 14 June 2020
Where: South Africa, Online
Like many other previously in-the-flesh hackathons, this year’s Do_Action hackathon moves online, so you can build WordPress websites for South African charities in nothing but your undies.
The concept is simple: Teams of six (a social media guru, content manager, designer, a couple of developers and a cat wrangler/project manager) work intensely for a week to deliver a brand-spanking-new WordPress website for one of ten non-profits.
Seven of the ten charities still have positions open, including NOAH (Nurturing Orphans of AIDS for Humanity), for “inner-city refuge for pupils after school serves to keep children who are orphaned or vulnerable off the street until there is an adult back ‘home’.” Girls Matter supports teenage girls who have dropped out of school. Outliers creates safe learning spaces for 15,000 students from disadvantaged communities.
Doing this work will officially allow you to put your undies on over tights, since you’ll be doing superhero work. Just remember to change before you go to the shops…
