Geeks For Good

10 February 2014

It's time we got some positive stuff out there about our industry. 

Many of our members do free and heavily discounted work for the Not for Profit sector. This work helps to scale the work of social enterprises and makes a powerful difference in the impact they have on the world.

AWIA is making videos promoting the developers and the Not for Profits they work with. We've made two. We'd like to make more. Put your hand up if you've done a great project with a Not for Profit.
