Hackers for Hire
The main idea is to use our collective skill sets and force of labor to collect donations. Ideally these should be quick jobs that can be completed in two days or less such as one day computer deployments, minor landscaping/cleanup, odd jobs, etc. Each member should try to donate a weekend when possible to coordinating a job with other members and any payment collected donated to the bootstrapping fund. This has the added benefits of building goodwill in the community and making contacts for future donations.
