Give the Gift of Somerville

Now you can share Somerville with your friends on Facebook using Give the Gift of Somerville, a new gift application developed by Somerville resident Dev Purkayastha and myself. You can use the app to send Somerville landmarks and icons, from a bathtub Mary, to the Round House, to a parking ticket, and many more to your friends all over the world.

The purpose of the application will be to raise money for a Somerville non-profit, most likely CAAS or the Somerville Homeless Coalition, by inviting local businesses to be added to it in exchange for a donation to the chosen non-profit. I'm still in the planning stages of the financial part, but the application is available for immediate use, with new gift items to be added in the coming weeks.

Please share your feedback and any requests for landmarks, etc. If you have Somerville photos you'd like to donate, I'll add them and give you photo credit. If you're a business owner who wants to get involved, please contact me here to set up a meeting.

Enjoy virtual Somerville!
