ABOUT THE EXTRAORDINARIES
--------------------------------

The Extraordinaries delivers micro-volunteer opportunities to mobile phones and web browsers that can be done on-demand and on-the-spot. Currently available as an iPhone® application through Apple's iTunes® store, The Extraordinaries enables organizations to connect with their supporters through these micro-volunteer opportunities, strengthening relationships while leveraging their "crowds" to complete real work such as image tagging, translation and research. Recently, The Extraordinaries was awarded an Echoing Green fellowship as well as a generous grant from the Knight Foundation. Led by a team with deep experience in activism, technology and social good from organizations including Kiva.org and MySpace, The Extraordinaries is a social business based in San Francisco, CA.
