Florida DrupalCamp 2013 Coding for a Cause

Average: 5 (4 votes)

Caught doing good braceletsFlorida DrupalCamp 2013 invited four local non-profit organizations to take part in our annual Coding for a Cause event. Held the day after the camp sessions, over 30 volunteers help with site-building, theming, and content management tasks for the lucky organizations.

This year's event focused on four local 501(c)(3) non-profits that were selected from the application process. Each selected organization was required to agree to:

  • work with a project manager prior to the event
  • attend a full day of beginner training sessions on Saturday
  • participate in the site-build on Sunday

The four organizations are:

Helpertunity

An Orlando-based organization focusing on supporting recreation, education, and volunteer activities for elderly, disabled, and homeless persons. In addition to individual volunteer projects, Helpertunity's goal for 2013 is to advocate for technology access and mobile resources for care facilities (nursing homes, care shelters, and adult day programs) in Florida. Volunteers are creating a web site to allow donors to connect, learn, and build trust with the organziation so that on-going projects can continue and grow. http://www.helpertunity.org

East Coast Greenway (Florida Chapter)

A Florida-based chapter of the national East Coast Greenway organization focused on advocacy, support, and development of the 3,000 mile multi-use greenway route between Maine and Key West. The project involves creating a pilot web site whose goal is to futher engage and expand volunteer activity in trail-building and advocacy. The pilot web site will be focused on building community support for the Florida portion of the trail. http://www.helpertunity.org

Orlando Music Club

A Central Florida-based foundation that provides scholarships to students interested in studying music. They also provide music resources for teachers as well as a matching service putting students, teachers, and music resources together. Volunteers will be rebuilding their existing web site with a new design, updated content, and improved functionality. http://orlandomusicclub.org

Urban Rethink

Urban Rethink is an Orlando-based creative hub that focuses on co-working and community events as part of the Urban Think Foundation. The project consists of expanding their informational website to include user-generated content and social media-style pages for their co-working members. Specifically, an infrastructure for creating online photo albums will be built, and non-technical volunteers will be migrating photos from the past several years' worth of Urban Rethink events. In addition, the design of the site is being upgraded to be mobile- and tablet-friendly. http://urbanrethink.com/
