You may have seen the post on the Google Blog about All for Good, the new site that makes it easy to find and share volunteer activities within the United States. The site was built collaboratively by Google and several partners. We're especially proud that it was built using 100% open source Python code. All for Good's first release includes both gadgets and a free API, making it even easier for casual developers to build applications and embed All for Good listings in their own apps and sites.

If you're interested in seeing your software talents dedicated to community service, check out the API documentation, our Getting Started Guide and the complete source code for the core engine. We're especially looking forward to see what applications the developer community will create for mobile platforms and for Facebook. Happy Hacking!
