Event Description

Social Actions is hosting a conference call with its 50+ action sources to discuss the upcoming public launch of a platform called All for Good. The platform, formerly known as the Footprint Initiative, comes out of discussions between President Obama's transition team, Google staff, Craigslist Foundation staff, and others.

All for Good is an open source aggregation of service opportunities and will serve as the back end of several high profile volunteering websites, possibly including From our discussions with the creators of All for Good, we understand that they intend to expand into other forms of social action, including donations.

We are convening the 50+ platforms we work with to hear your thoughts on and experiences to date with All for Good.
