Since we announced Mozilla Service Week (September 14 – 21, 2009) in June we’ve gained a lot of momentum and support. We’ve asked people to step up and make a difference by using the Web to better their community, and it turns out there are quite a few people who share our deep commitment and belief that everyone should have an awesome Web experience! Service work is nothing new for us either. The Mozilla community has a long legacy of volunteer work that has helped turn the Web around and we’ve already got 2,500 service hours pledged!
The project has resonated with the current Mozilla community, as well as organizations in the non-profit technology, service and social entrepreneurship spaces. We have a great group of new Mozilla Service Week “Friends” who’ve signed on to help promote our service week to their communities. They’re bringing in a new energy and set of participants to the project!
- Community Technology Network
- Democracy in Action
- TechSoup Global

OneWebDay (September 22, 2009) which is an “Earth Day” for the Web also joins Mozilla Service Week’s group of partners, including Idealist.org and BetterPlace.org. The theme for this year’s global celebration and service day is “Digital Inclusion” and aligns nicely with the Mozilla mission. More to come on this!
