Project of the week: Humanitarian Toolbox’s allReady

allReady is a project managed by the charity organization Humanitarian Toolbox that is designed to assist the management of community preparedness campaigns. It’s being tested by the American Red Cross on a campaign to install smoke alarms within homes in the Chicago area. The project is built with ASP.NET Core and Entity Framework 7. It is also open source.


This is a great opportunity to get your feet wet with open source and .NET Core, while contributing to great humanitarian causes. Please head over to the allReady project’s home page to learn more.
