The The Extraordinaries Mission
To turn spare time into social value through micro-volunteering! More detail: The Extraordinaries delivers micro-volunteer opportunities to mobile phones that can be done on-demand and on-the-spot, allowing people to engage and support their favorite organizations while on the go (tag satellite images, translate websites, take photos, etc.). The Extraordinaries has won several awards including a Knight Foundation Grant and an Echoing Green Fellowship, has been featured in NPR and the Washington Post, and is led by folks with management experience at Kiva.org, MySpace, eBay, and Mobile Voter. We are a for-profit company with a social mission.
We've currently got an app live in the iTunes store with more coming soon; for screenshots and to download the app, visit: http://www.theextraordinaries.org/download.html
Veterans from Kiva.org, richrelevance, MySpace, eBay, MobileVoter, The Democratic Party, and more. We're on a mission to change the world.
Life at The Extraordinaries
Reaally cool space on Kearny near Sutter in downtown SF with lots of natural light, exposed brick walls, and an in-house recording studio (for real).
