Another great event! I always find it amazing that a group of about 40 developers, many of which have never worked together before, can get together over the course of a weekend and produce something that makes a real difference for non-profit organizations. Major kudos goes out to each and every volunteer who came out to the event. Columbus GiveCamp certainly brought out the cream of the crop when it comes to talented project managers, designers and developers.
Here are the supported non-profit organizations:
- HopeMongers [site scheduled to launch in early fall] – http://www.hopemongers.org

Thank you for the Sponsorship!!
Volunteer events like GiveCamp are not possible without the help of sponsorship. The GiveCamp crew and non-profit organizations are extremely thankful to the Columbus GiveCamp sponsors Microsoft, TechSmith, Quick Solutions, DiscountASP.net, The Sophic Group, Telerik, Pei Wei and Pot Belly Sandwiches. Thank you Microsoft, TechSmith and Sophic for providing funding and giveaways for the event, it kept the developers well fed, caffeinated and happy. Quick Solutions for allowing us use of their office location and internet pipe [having the excellent bandwidth played a large role in the success of this event!], as well as providing us notepads, paper, pens, whiteboards, projectors, as well as all the caffeinated beverages that we could drink. DiscountASP.Net for graciously providing free hosting packages to our non-profit organizations, this is definitely the gift that will keep on giving! Pei Wei surprised us by more than doubling our original food order, and Pot Belly provided us a generous discount on our order.
