Not calling people out -- asking them to step up.

The HelpEarth Foundation was launched after the world recover from the BoxerDay Tsunami and realized that we need to come together before disaster strikes ~sound fimilar!  So when  efforts like Crisis Commons - CrisisCamps and Random Hacks of Kindness --RHoKs  started piping up we readily join in.

The very first RHok we attended was in Microsoft's location where they, google, world bank and local socialpreners all came together to Hack for Good.  Here's a snip

 That was 2010 and now today the last hackathon for good that happen local led was back in December of 2013 and it was not for lack of effort. It was support that was needed and to match the enthusiasm that is already being generated for it would be shame to miss the chance to come together and do Random Hacks of Kindness.

Join as challenger, hacker or sponsor all are welcome.

Random Hacks of Kindness is coming to DC #RHoKDC1215

The best thing about the web is that it's random and when adding hacking for kindness to random acts one gets' Random Hacks of Kindness and way back in June of 2010 one of the first global gathers of coders, hackers, programmers and the community at large came together and worked to make the world a better place.

Since that time large companies like Nike have come to RHoK to help it get a grasp on this emerging world of Social Media Citizens and show that it too cares about doing good too of course the small groups of even nations that have sought the skills that RHoKstars have in adbandance. 

We've even hadPublic Schools like Alice Deal Middle School in Washington, DC. that hosted the Dec 2013 RHoKDC that ended up producing two different challenge one to handle the AV items in the school and an HTML5 application for the parents and students 

From 2013-12-08

What's in store this upcoming RHoKDC1215??????

It's up to the community to come to us via this amazing process and let the coders, hackers and programmers that make up the heart of RHoK (please go register) know what challenges that they face and we all then work to make something if not random happen for the good of all. 

We've setup a small GoFundMe campaign to help with the cost of food and swag for the participates and of course we're looking for sponsors and partners... all of which can be signed up for on the website
