About the PAY IT FWD community
PAY IT FWD is a Slack Group for Designers with roughly 400 members. It has a live chat communication style.
In their own words
PAY IT FWD is inspired by the idea that there’s a bunch of do-gooders out there who wish to make a difference to the world through their skills but don’t have a platform. They don’t know who to reach out to or how to find opportunities to donate through their skills. In June 2020, PAY IT FWD was launched on Slack where a community of volunteers could pick up design projects posted by charities and work on them for free. As of today, we are a community of over 300 members consisting of designers with different skills and non-profits supporting various causes. We have completed multiple design, video and content-related projects for the non-profits and continue to work on more every week.
