Hi developers, we invited some of you to join the Explorer program first because we wanted to see how your feedback and Glassware could show everyone even more ways to use Glass. We've just announced a new program, Giving through Glass. In collaboration with Google.org, we’re trying to show how nonprofits can use Glass to spend less time with technology and more time solving big problems.

We’re reaching out to give you a chance to build Glassware for one of these nonprofits:
GiveDirectly: http://www.givedirectly.org
DoSomething.org: http://www.dosomething.org
charity:water: http://www.charitywater.org
Samasource: http://samasource.org
World Wildlife Fund: http://worldwildlife.org

What you would do:
- Get up to speed with Glass Developer Guidelines
- Interview your assigned nonprofit to learn more about the specific problem your Glassware will solve. Your Glassware could help solve problems related to database access, communication, project management, social media and donor relations. 
- Consult with other professional developers from the Explorer community. Your Glassware will be due around mid-January, with some interim due dates along the way  
- Review designs with technical liaisons from the nonprofits 

Interested? Reply here by end of this week to let us know, and we'll figure out the details together.

Is this limited to Glassware utilizing mirror api, or does it also include native apps as well?
 
Add me to the list. You guys are free to reach out to me via email. 
 
Is this expected to be pro bono work? My team and I are interested either way but that is an important bit of info that seems to be missing.
 
Potentially interested - keep me posted.
 
I'm interested. I'm currently involved in a non profit myself so I'm sure I can learn something from this.
 
I am interested especially if we're looking at native apps.
 
We're very interested. Let us know when you have more details.
 
Thank you so much for your interest. We'll get back to you with more details very soon. Stay tuned!
 
Actually its 7 the last one is related to sports & may not be possible with current API :/ 
 
I would love to find out more information. I'm always looking to help out with Non-Profits.
 
+Google Glass Please add me to the list as well. As silly as it sounds (especially here!) I am not a developer but am very interested to see how developers are working with Glass and how I can work with them! I started an initiative here in Orlando affectionately called #Glass4good. I would very much love to be involved in Giving Through Glass!
 
I'm very interested! Please add me to the list. I'm excited to work on more apps that can improve the lives of others.
 
+Google Glass I would be very interested in contributing to these projects. Givedirectly or WorldWideLive appeal to me most as I visit Kenya often and have great interest with the African continent. I'm currently working as a mobile developer for a large company, and have been following the google glass apis for a while. I have some ideas that could help all these nonprofits and would fit google glass platform. 
 
All I am DPM for +ERAU.edu and we are looking for +Google Glass developers to build a campus tour app for our campuses with a timeline of 8/14-1/15. Please contact me through Google+. Thanks
