Purina ONE cat and dog food brand and GOOD are collaborating with Karma Rescue, a Los Angeles, California, USA, animal rescue group, to host the Karma Rescue Redesign on December 7-8.
The 24-hour hackathon will bring together developers, designers and pet lovers to help the nonprofit rescue redesign its website so it can be better used as a tool for pet adoptions. Participants will work in teams of up to four members to plan, create and pitch their website redesign ideas to a panel of judges. Judges will select a winner based on the following criteria: creativity and originality, design, implementation and feasibility, and management and sustainability.
The winning team will receive: US$1,000 for the team, a feature on good.is, a year subscription to GOOD Magazine for each team member, and coupons for a year's supply of Purina ONE petfood for each team member.
