This past weekend, Ryan Cromwell and the incredible developer community of Southwest Ohio participated in the Southwest Ohio GiveCamp.Â His staff of 12 Organizers, 65 Volunteers, over the course of 36 hours (1440 hours individually), with over 200 repository commits and a TON of caffeine, resulted in $144,000 in value delivered to 10 needy charities in the Cincinnati area. Feedback from the volunteers was amazing, and all the charities were very happy with the work that was done for them.
Hereâs a list of the charities helped by the GiveCamp:
- http://esc.schenzcustomdesigns.com (End Slavery Cincinnati)
- http://civicgardencenter.org (Volunteer Service Coordination put online)
- http://wincincy.probas.co (Foreclosure Prevention Assistance & Upcoming Events)
There is also a great photo gallery online if you want to check out more pictures â personally, I like this one: a Dad teaching his son about how important it is to give back to the community.
Congratulations to all involved, and especially to the charities that now have new or updated websites! A special shout-out also goes to event organizer Ryan Cromwell for putting on such a great event!
