How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world. Anne Frank

Today marks the last day of Mozilla Service Week.  We hope you’ve had an amazing time this past week, getting out in your communities and helping organizations and individuals better use the Web.  You don’t have to miss out on Mozilla Service Week — there’s still plenty to do!

  • On your lunch hour or after work host a Web help desk at a local cafe, at your company or at school.  All you need is a laptop,  a sign and wireless wireless!
  • Conduct an Internet Health Audit for a few friends or colleagues.  We’ve made the audit even easier, just visit our Health Check page and you’ll know if you need to update your browser.
  • Find a service opportunity on Idealist.org or on Betterplace.org (if you’re in Germany) and start helping a non-profit when you have the time. You can also scroll through some of the stories and projects posted on the Mozilla Service Week website.

If you need some inspiration check out how other community members have heeded the call:

  • Nipon Haque of India has set up a website for the The Uttar Banga Anath Ashram orphanage.  The founder Uma Mallick scrapes by to care for, feed and educate 28 girls.  Anjan Kumar Das, one of their supporters, felt the need for a  website to raise funds and awareness for this cause.  Great work!
  • Joe McLaughlin has helped bring the Millvale Library (near Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania) to life by refurbishing computers and getting the library online.  Nice job!
  • Abhinav Kishhore of India has taken the Web help desk idea online,  creating a help request form.  He’s volunteering to follow up and help you with your specific tech needs!  Creative take on the Web help desk.

Have a great last day of Mozilla Service Week and get ready to celebrate OneWebDay on September 22nd!
