Ladies and Gentlemen,

We’re pleased and excited to be organizing a hackathon that will bring together the Montreal WordPress and non-profit communities. During this event, participants from the local WordPress community will come together to plan and build brand new websites for a number of local organizations in one day. We can’t wait to contribute to the good that our local non-profit community does, but we need a little help to get there!

Update: we have set a date and location, and have been added to the official do_action website: https://doaction.org/event/montreal-2017/

Montreal’s inaugural do_action hackathon will take place on October 14,2017 at Shopify

Volunteer

We’re building a volunteer organizing team that will be led by our own Sasha Endoh. If you have experience organizing events or hackathons that’s a definite plus, but please don’t be shy in reaching out if you just feel passionate enough to contribute your time. We’ll need help in the following areas:

  • Venue logistics
  • Fundraising
  • Sponsor relations
  • Participant recruitment, selection
  • Catering
  • Swag
  • Printing
  • Design (name tags, signs, shirts etc.)
  • Publicity
  • A/V
  • WordPress training for non-profit representatives

Go on and sign-up to be a volunteer and use your powers for good!

Become a Sponsor

This a not-for-profit event and we’ll need all the help we can get to make it a great one!

Sponsors’ names and links will be shown on the do_action Montreal event website (forthcoming). We will also add your graphics to printed materials at the bronze level and above. We’ll have much more information for businesses interested in sponsoring the event in the coming weeks but if you’re already interested, we’d love to have you on board at one of these sponsorship levels:
