ⓘ Catchafire

Catchafire is a New York-based for-profit organization which makes skill-based connections between professional volunteers and other non-profits. It was founded in 2009 by Rachael Chong, a former investment banker with UBS.

Volunteers with any of a wide variety of skills can browse Catchafire to find short-term projects which match their specific talents. Catchafire has been explicitly compared with matchmaking or dating websites. Catchafire charges its nonprofit subscribers a fee for matching a project with a volunteer.

Chong has said she was inspired to start Catchafire by her experience volunteering for a house-building project in The Bronx, which left her financial and banking skills "untapped," requiring her instead to haul lumber around a building site. "Were matching what people do in their day-to-day lives with the opportunity to apply those amazing skills to a non-profit that truly needs it," she has said.

Pino - logical board game which is based on tactics and strategy. In general this is a remix of chess, checkers and corners. The game develops imagination, concentration, teaches how to solve tasks, plan their own actions and of course to think logically. It does not matter how much pieces you have, the main thing is how they are placement!
