Design Like You Give A Damn!

I've always been fascinated with those who volenteer at Architecture for Humanity , which I've recently joined . Architecture for Humanity is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization that seeks architectural solutions to humanitarian crisis and brings design services to communities in need.
The organization believes that where resources and expertise are scarce, innovative, sustainable and collaborative design can make a difference.

By showing an active interest in Architecture for Humanity, you are part of a growing grassroots humanitarian design movement helping to change the perception of the role of the designer.
In most circles, architecture and design is seen as a service for the privileged.
Our profession is guilty of embracing this ideal.
Design should be a profession of inclusion whose talents help those who need them most. It is time for you to change the perception and design like you give a damn.

Make sure to visit their website and at least read about it, or blog about it! .. remember , for such a good cause , word of mouth is very powerful!
