DayOn.org connects nonprofit organizations with volunteers.
Day On | It's a day on, not a day off.
Day On is a Porland, Oregon-based group that connects nonprofit organizations that need advice and assistance with volunteers who are ready to help.
The first Day On project is Geeks Day On, a day of service during MLK Day, Monday, January 19, 2009 where geekss offer free technology and Internet communications advice and assistance to nonprofit organizations. A second endeavor will be held Tuesday March 24th, in coordination with NetSquared's Net Tuesday.
Why Day On?
Day On was inspired by the idea of Martin Luther King Day as a day of service rather than a day of rest: a day on, rather than a day off. The idea came out of the community around the Legion of Tech, which seeks to grow and nurture the local Portland, OR community through free, educational, community-run technology events.
