We’re getting close to Mozilla Service Week — it’s just 18 days away! We’ve had over 4,300 hours pledged and over 2,200 volunteer opportunities posted. We’re in the process of rolling out action templates for Service Week and OneWebDay for those that would like to create their own opportunities or need a little more flexibility They’re sets of actions and resources that you can use to help non-profits, organizations and individuals improve their experience online and allow them to better leverage the Web. Check them out:
- Internet Health Check: Online privacy and security are major concerns for everyone. The Internet Health Check provides four easy steps to update a computer’s browser and plug-ins. You can perform Internet Health Checks for an organization or friends and family.
- Digital Marketing: The Digital Marketing Template was created to help Service Week volunteers get organizations set up with a preliminary social media marketing framework (see Chelsea Novak’s blog for more details). Social Media tools can greatly help an NPO connect with its community, donors and the general public – for free!
We’re hoping these templates make it easier for you to act! If you have any ideas on new ones or would like create some, please comment here. A few ideas to keep in mind if you’d like to use these templates or others:
- Take a moment to pledge your hours.
- Share your plans or stories on Mozilla Service Week’s site — it will help provide inspiration for others.
- Challenge your friends to do this as well using PledgeBank (i.e. I will perform 10 Internet Health Checks if 20 of my friends do so as well).
And, remember to have fun!
