"At verynice, pro-bono work isn’t something that employees do off the clock, with or without incentives."
– Ryan Scott, Forbes Magazine
September 7, 2013 marks the beginning of a movement: “How to Give Half of Your Work Away for Free” was officially released, attracting over 5,000 readers globally. Since then, thousands of service providers in over 1,500 cities have leveraged components of our model to contribute to the greater pro-bono marketplace for nonprofits. We are proud to say that there are now dozens of #givehalf companies around the world!
Since it’s beginning, the #givehalf movement has grown significantly— enough for verynice Founder, Matthew Manos, to release a second edition of the book. This brings us to our big announcement… The Second Edition of "How to Give Half of Your Work Away for Free" has been released online! Click here to download your copy now! As you may have guessed… “purchase” of the book is donation based.
A quick refresher: "How to Give Half of Your Work Away For Free" aims to open-source our Give Half business model invented by verynice Founder, Matthew Manos. Give Half 2.0 will act as a toolkit that is broken into four primary sections (definitions, FAQs, worksheets, and essays), each representing the inner-working of our model from different perspectives.
Matt is currently touring the book! If you’re in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago, or Phoenix— he’ll be coming to your city shortly to spread the message of Give Half 2.0!
