FeedANeed allows anyone to vote for worthy nonprofits and/or sign up to volunteer some chunk of their time to top vote-getting organizations. Volunteers that complete their pledged time by February 14th, 2009 will be entered into a drawing for prizes from various sponsors (from a wide variety of organizations Wired, EFF, Baconfreak, and even Sunlight Foundation).
The reddit community is somewhat technical so there is a place to list design or development skills, but they are certainly not a requirement. You can indicate you are simply willing to do a couple hours of data entry or image recognition, something akin to Amazon’s Mechanical Turk. When we’re talking about government data there is no shortage of material that would benefit from a team of volunteers being thrown at it.
Voting ends December 23rd @ 7pm Eastern – before the polls close please head over to FeedANeed_ and cast a vote for us (and your other favorite nonprofits).
After you vote for us please consider signing up to donate as little as two hours of your time to a worthy cause. A lot of nonprofits are facing the prospect of reduced donations due to the current economic climate, and this is a great way to support your favorite causes without spending a dime. Quite a few of us here at Sunlight will be returning the favor by volunteering a couple hours of our time elsewhere through FeedANeed as a way of saying thanks.
