Michael PhillipsWhat does that mean, anyway? More <something> than you can shake a stick at? Whatever it means, there are a lot of GiveCamps coming up at this month, and we sponsor every one of them listed here.

You may say, “Hey, that’s a lot of sponsorships DiscountASP, what are you trying to prove?” Well, maybe it is a lot of sponsorships. But the idea of GiveCamps is one we really get behind, so we sponsor as many as we can. And we encourage you to check out – and participate in – one of them near you.

A GiveCamp is a weekend-long event where software developers, designers, and database administrators donate their time to create custom software for non-profit organizations. It’s a great opportunity for people to work together, develop new friendships, and do something important for their community. All source code is turned over to the charities at the end of the weekend (developers cannot ask for payment).

In addition to sponsoring, we also provide free hosting to many of the charities involved in GiveCamps. We contribute because we think it’s one of the greatest ways for someone who wants to contribute and do something positive – and has a talent for coding  – to get connected with someone who really needs and will appreciate their help.

Maybe you help a local charity without a lot of fanfare, we think that’s great too! But if you’re someone who wants to help but doesn’t exactly know who might need your help, GiveCamps make it easy. We urge you to look for one near you and check it out. You’ll be glad you did.
