Organizing For America may own Obama’s supporter list (and be looking for people to help nurture it), but they’re not the only ones trying to follow his campaign’s example and connect people online to help change the world. Hope+ is a new site (currently in beta) that aims to build relationships between people around the world and channel members toward specific projects that need their help. It’s a similar model to that of Change.org, but focused more on the developing world, where a little support can often take projects a long way.
Like any socnet, the site will obviously live and die based on whether it can build a critical mass of users, a process that’s just beginning in this case. Swing by and check it out; I just joined. It’ll be fascinating to see where this goes!
