In September some of my friends and I had a crazy idea of taking a road trip to SXSW for spring break. Our idea got even crazier: What if we used our web design skills to help non profits along the way? What if we had other people pay our expenses?
It’s hard to believe this crazy dream becomes a reality tomorrow. We raised over $4,500, and found housing in Indianapolis, Nashville, Dallas, and Austin. We also convinced Michigan State University to pay for our vans, gas, and other travel expenses.
Tomorrow we drive to Indianapolis to help the Center of Wellness for Urban Women. We then will move on to help the ARC of Tennessee (which helps families with intellectual disabilities) in Nashville. Followed by the Beyond Foundation in Dallas, and the Mobile Art Project in Austin Texas. To top off our trip we are going to attend the SXSW career fair and kick off party with the Local Natives.
