do_action is a charity hackathon that uses WordPress to uplift local communities. do_action hackathons are community-organised events that are focussed on using WordPress to give deserving charitable organisations their own online presence. Each do_action event includes participants from the local WordPress community coming together to plan and build brand new websites for a number of local organisations in one day.
do_action is the annual event where our local WordPress community comes together to give back to the broader community of Cape Town by building websites for multiple non-profit organisations. All of the sites are built for free by our community on WordPress, and hosted for free by Hetzner.
Why they choose us?
There were 40 other NGOs that applied. We were selected because we had a bad website and because the type of work we do is different. A variety of organisations were selected and each help their communities in unique ways.
Impact of sponsorship?
We are excited to have a website we can be proud off.
Having our own online presence also means that we can share our work. It gives us the opportunity to broaden awareness to like minded partners and sponsors.
