Push for Good: This Week's Guide to Crowdsourcing Creative Progress

by Alessandra Rizzotti

August 29, 2013

With our Push for Good series, we have identified crowdfunding opportunities for the GOOD community to get behind. Now we are also shining a light on crowd-doing opportunities—so you can join others in working towards the greater good with actions as well as donations. Here's our weekly round-up of our favorite members' projects from the crowdsourced world.

Crowdsourced Video

Make a Short Video with Your Neighbors

Do you know your neighbors? GOOD member Mary Crosse didn't, until she asked them to make a video with her about their neighborhood. Her film company, On My Block, is now asking you to submit your own videos by October 13. Meet your neighbors. Break the ice with some dinner and make a movie. Add it to your To-Do List.

Crowdsourced Attendance

An App for More Efficient Disaster Response

Children's Book Charleton's Purpose
