Craigslist Foundation launches LikeMinded, hoping to inspire voluntarism

The Craigslist Foundation today launched LikeMinded, a project that aims to use the power of online organizing to help people volunteer to improve their communities. The Foundation wants to “empower people to strengthen their communities by connecting them to the resources they need to effectively engage in community building.”  LikeMinded is conceived as a database of successful civic projects that can assist and inspire people in farflung communities facing similar problems to develop their own successful projects.
There is a series of video tutorials on the LikeMinded site that explain the project's goals in more depth.
