Tech platform to connect techies to charities

A new international web platform, based in Hungary, aims to connect experienced technology staff to charities who can use their skills as volunteers. #charity (hashtagcharity) is due to launch officially in March, but already has signed up more than its initial target of techies.

UK Fundraising has more details at http://www.fundraising.co.uk/2015/01/14/charity-platform-connect-experienced-tech-volunteers-charities/ or go to http://hashtagcharity.org/.

There are already a number of initiatives around IT volunteers in this country, such as IT4Communities, Charity IT Association, and various hackathons, but this does seem to take a different approach.
