Backdrop 4 Good

Wouldn't it be great to work on tangible projects and help non-profit organizations further their cause with Backdrop websites? We often work in a theoretical or abstracted space when working on Backdrop core and contrib software. I was delighted by the idea of working with the Backdrop community on concrete real websites for a cause.
