Active Reload shines a beacon to guide our mission critical Web 2.0 applications and other projects

Active Reload donates Lighthouse account for web developmentThank you Active Reload for donating an account for use of your wonderful Lighthouse collaboration and service tracking application for our Web 2.0 application development and other projects. Lighthouse allows us to organize our teams of Ruby on Rails developers who are busy upgrading our capabilities. The tools allows our volunteers to rapidly build mission critical functions and to organize and manage other projects for marshaling resource donations – magazines for kids and families; donated dollars; and volunteer time. When you consider that everything we do involves a project, large or small, the possibilities and the value created by Lighthouse are endless. In addition to web application development, we are also using the capability to organize volunteers around grassroots projects that meet literacy needs in their own communities. We are continually finding new ways to utilize this powerful gift.
