Not sure what’s up with Silicon Valley churning out the love these days but here’s Mozilla’s efforts:
This September, Mozilla is challenging users to earn their Internet merit badges by donating their time and talents to public benefit institutions, non-profits, and those in need.
According to an email we received from Mozilla, “Everyone should have the opportunity to know how to use the Internet, have easy access to it, and have a good experience when they’re online. This new initiative is looking for people with a talent for writing, designing, programming, developing, or all-around technical know-how. Internet skills, no matter how novice or advanced, can change people’s lives and make the Web better for everyone.” Mozilla Service Week will take place from September 14-21, 2009.
Goals of the initiative include teaching the elderly how to user the Internet, helping non-profits use the social web and update their databases, installing wireless networks at schools, and working in libraries and community computer centers.
