Creating Something with Ruby
Since I will try to help some of the non-profit organization by creating something that they are willing to have, I thought it will be a great idea to actually find out what kind of non-profits are currently demanding something that I can possibly implement using Ruby. I have used Volunteer Hawaii for it, and found out that there is one non-profit organization that is currently seeking some volunteers, which is St Francis, located in Honolulu.
According to the website, it says:
Examples of How Volunteers can help : Administrative Office Support . . . Gardening . . . Horticulture....Videographer . . . Web Design . . . Writing grants . . .Calling donors...... and Participation in special community projects.So, I thought I may be able to help them by creating website and web application using Ruby and basic knowledge of HTML, CSS.
I do not have any specific info with regard to what kind of particular issues that St. Francis has, but web development is certainly where I will be doing for living, so I am very motivated and interested in helping them.
I have already shot an email but they said they won't be available till next monday, so I will wait with a hope of heir response saying that they are welcoming me as a technical volunteer.
Meanwhile, I will keep searching other non-profit organizations that are seeking volunteers or having any issues that I can possibly, at least try to solve.
If anyone is interested in a volunteer opportunity at St. Francis as I mentioned above, do check out the link here. And, if anyone knows or found any non-profits that are currently seeking volunteers, especially in technical field, please let me know :)
