My girlfriend suggested a site to me the other day and upon my first visit I was hooked. Sparked.com allows for non-profits to post creative needs they’d like filled, and design-minded individuals like myself the chance to volunteer efforts to fulfill those needs.
Within the first couple of days, I’d already designed ideas for wildlife preservation groups’ twitter backgrounds, suggested names for a vegan chat group and thrown together possibly the ugliest looking cycling jersey I’d ever seen in my genuine attempt at helping the American Lung Association.
If you are a non-profit in need of some design work, check them out. If you are a creative individual looking to fill time, definitely check them out.
