Episode 11 – We Are Microsoft Charity Challenge – Hope Mongers

The “We are Microsoft Charity Challenge” is a 3-day event that matches developers with charities to develop applications for those charities. We were able to catch up with one of the charities, “Hope Mongers” and the developers that were paired with them. Jason Townsend runs the .NET User Group in Bartlesville, OK and drove down with several of the people that he knows and works with to donate their time and talent for this event. Check it out!

I noticed that the new Hope Mongers site is still coming together. While we’re waiting for it’s completion, be sure to check out the Red Letters Campaign group as well.

We are Microsoft is a part of the Give Camp efforts. I was really impressed by all of the volunteers, organization, and the coordination that they had going on between the developers and the groups that were being helped. Awesome!
