As I’m packing up to ride to Los Angeles as part of the AIDS/LifeCycle event which raises funds for AIDS research, I thought it would be a good time to provide an update on Mozilla Service Week. The AIDS/LifeCycle event (which is seven whopping days!) is made possible by hundreds of committed volunteers who support a moving village of bike riders each day and thousands of volunteer fundraisers. It’s exactly that type of spirit — people wanting to make a difference in their communities — that we’re looking to harness for Mozilla Service Week.
Since I initially posted about Mozilla Service Week, our effort to provide technology-based service to local communities and organizations, we’ve had great interest from our localization volunteers. Over 17 different locales have stepped forward to translate the site which magnifies our potential to do good around the world! We’ve also been working to complete the English version of the site which we’ll roll out shortly.
The actual week will take place in September. We’ll post more details soon on how you can get involved and make this an awesome week!
