Third Thursdays (Special Event) - Civic Hackathon for Tornado Recovery

This Thursday we will be coming together with a purpose: To help the central Illinois tornado recovery efforts through technology.

Bring your ideas and laptops as we discuss and then build ways to help our community!

PublicStuff ( will be offering up access to their API to help on the development side of things.

All kinds of skill sets are needed: Business, marketing, design, development, PR, etc.

We will also be collecting donations to provide to local charities that are assisting in the recovery efforts.

Please spread the word!!!

    Sorry that I will not be able to be a part of this event. My son and his family lost everything in the tornado. They are living with us now. Lots of more pressing things I have to take care of for the next few weeks. If you are curious what their home looked like, please visit:

    Best always,

    Hello everyone, looking forward to meeting you all tonight. Thank you for coming together to help me and my fellow SURVIVORS (not victims!!). I hope to provide you with insight on the situation and my ideas on what will help most.

    In the meantime please visit to read my message to the world.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
