We've just launched a new staff volunteering programme. 

Every full time employee at Microsoft Ireland now has three full days to volunteer to the community project of their choice.

There has been incredible interest around the programme and we're asking charities and community groups interested in finding volunteers to contact us at irlgive@microsoft.com

One of the first volunteering projects under the programme was the re-design of the Dun Laoghaire Lifeboat Station web site.

The goals of the project were:

  • Build functionality into the web site to allow users to donate to the charity
  • Promote the work and events of the Dun Laoghaire Lifeboat Station
  • Provide an identity to the Dun Laoghaire Lifeboat Station
  • Be easy to update and maintain
