“Bingo” posts are based on writer’s block bingo, where you “find a book closest to you, open the book, find an arbitrary sentence, and start writing about this sentence.”

Book
The Power of Pro Bono

Sentence
The study [Capitalizing on Volunteers’ Skills: Volunteering by Occupation in America] concluded that although most people do not use their professional skills when they are volunteering, those who do are far more satisfied and more likely to continue those activities year to year.

Daily Design Idea
November 11’s daily design idea is it’s ok for giving to be a selfish act. Perform your skills or pursue your passions while helping others and everyone wins!

The Power of Pro Bono is edited by John Cary and Public Architecture, with book design by Pentagram (the source of the above image)

I have a designer crush on Jonas Butenbruch. “We need more direct and engaged criticism of the built environment.”
