I do the occasional job for non-profits. I have, on occasion, flat out donated my time for a cause I think is worthwhile. That’s because I consider my time valuable — just as worth donating as money. That also means that I won’t do pro bono work for just anyone.
Right now, I’m putting together a project for a non-profit. I’m in a bit of a quandary when it comes to some of the content, though. There’s simply not enough of a budget to develop the kind of content that this project needs, and I’d hate to ask anyone to do a job that, in their shoes, I’d refuse to do. Even worse, it requires an expert in a certain topic — one that I have only surface knowledge of.
My current hope is that some of the people who are passionate about this project are willing to step up and handle writing some of this content, or I find someone willing to contribute their valuable time.
