Mozilla Service Week: The challenge is on!


We’re now just 11 days from the start of Mozilla Service Week and momentum continues to build!  The community has stepped up to pledge over 7,300 hours of service and our localization community just rolled out the Korean, Polish and Shqip versions of  We also now have volunteer opportunities posted in 79 countries.  Great work everyone!

While showing people how to better use the Web is fun, throwing in a challenge or a little competition makes it even more fun!  We’ve set up “service challenges” or dares on PledgeBank to inspire more participation:

  • Social Media Seminars: Put your experience on Facebook & twitter to good use and teach NPOs how to connect with their community, donors and the general public – for free!  We’re calling for at least 50 of these sessions!
  • Host  your own Web Q&A session: Channel your inner Lucy from Charlie Brown and set up shop at a library, coffee shop and Internet cafe.  Offer  to answer questions and show folks how to use the Web.  We’ve even created a flyer for you to attach to your computer showing you’re a volunteer.  Help us rally 100 people to do this!
  • Conduct Internet Health Checks: Volunteer your time and perform Internet Health Checks on computers owned by people or organizations that need your help to be safe online.  Just follow four easy steps to make sure your friends, classmates, a NPO, etc are safe on the Web. We’d love for at least 100 people to sign up!

Join one of our challenges and remember to pledge your hours on the Mozilla Service Week site!
