It's that time of the year again. ZURB has started planning our annual ZURBwired design marathon for April 8, 2010.
What is ZURBwired?
It's 24 straight hours of doing what we do best, all to benefit one special Bay Area nonprofit organization, and all at no cost to them. That's right; maybe it's a new website, maybe it's posters and invites for an upcoming event. Whatever the materials involved, the nonprofit will walk away at the end of the day with all the completed and printed collateral—literally hot off the presses—and it costs their team nothing but their time.
We'll team up with area volunteers and vendors who will all spend the day (and night!) at ZURB Headquarters powering through web and print collateral for the nonprofit whose proposal is chosen for this year's event.
What Do I Need to Do Now?
The event's not until April 8, but open submissions for nonprofits will be March 4-18.
In the meantime, we're looking for volunteers & partners to participate on the big day. We need people who want to work with the ZURB team and our chosen nonprofit from 8:00am April 8th until 8:00am April 9th. To be considered, just shoot an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to tell us what skills you'll bring to the day, and why you want to participate.
Vendors interested in partnering with us should also send an email to email@example.com to let us know how they can help provide the goods and services donated to the nonprofit.
Last year's partners included Zazzle, Tradewinds HD, and Chase VP, not to mention our long list of volunteers who stuck it out with us during ZURBwired 2009:
