I went to an event Tuesday night that surprised me. My friends Rich Grote and Dave Angulo are putting together an iPhone app to make finding volunteering opportunities easier. It will be based on your location and preferences. Pretty cool, has the potential to do a lot of good.
They have been working away at building up volunteers for a few months. This while building out the app and meeting with partners trying to get the data of volunteering information. Tuesday, I saw on the Boulder Calendar, that they were having a meetup.
To tell the honest truth, I went because I thought there were only going to be 5 people there, and I know how hard these guys have worked.
When I showed up, there were over 30 people there. Really top notch people. Really stoked to be working on the project. Here are just a few of who showed up.
I left with some tasks on my plate, some new friends, and a renewed feeling that Boulder rocks. The Van Heyst Group was the gracious host. Way to go Rich and Dave, this is a great project to get behind.
So, do you want to get involved? Check out their blog and show up to the next event!
Thank you everyone that showed up.
