I volunteer with Fuse Washington, a local organization that is working on creating a cutting-edge online organizing and communications hub for Washington that will help secure major advances in progressive public policy. They are planning an online campaign to highlight issues with the I-1033 ballot initiative and are looking for volunteer developers. Here’s the posting if folks are interested (which is also on their website.) You can contact Fuse at email@example.com, or me at firstname.lastname@example.org, if you would like more information.
The ad text is below. Thanks! Sameer.
Fuse Washington needs your help in creating an online outreach campaign to educate Washington voters about Initiative 1033. I-1033 is political gadfly Tim Eyman's latest attempt to hamstring government: The results would slow economic recovery and result in deep cuts to education and health care. Fuse is creating an online video campaign where concerned citizens can create, publish and spread the word through online video and social media.
Where you come in: We need YOUR ninja designer and web dev skills to put the word out there to as many people as possible within SIX weeks! We are also building a geek corps (all varieties welcome) for progressive projects after the November election, so even if you can't commit to this particular project, let us know if you are interested in donating your expertise in the future.
Your skills: Web designer, video producer, PHP/HTML/CSS guru, someone who deserializes Facebook's JSON in their sleep, or some dazzling combination of the above.
The website: The site will feature videos submitted by users, so we're looking for standard video rendering and a mechanism for users to easily submit/upload their videos. We’ll need a simple voting system, a Contact Us form, basic sharing integration with Facebook/Twitter, and a few other basic features. The site won't be very deep.
The time commitment: We're on a tight deadline to publish the site the last week of September, so whatever it takes between now and then. We expect the bulk of the requirements to be simple enough to code in a weekend or a few days. There might be ongoing maintenance needed from our geek team after the site launches, through the November election for 3-4 hours a week.
Ready to go?
Please contact email@example.com with a brief bio and your contact information. We will be contacting you to determine if your schedule and skill sets meet our needs and are looking to get you hitting the ground by the 21st.
