VolunteerMatch opens up

Volunteermatch.org, by far one of the best “matchmaking” websites online for helping nonprofit organizations find volunteers by matching up user preferences with organizational needs – is opening up its network for public access.

What does this mean? According to Allyson Kapin at FrogLoop, it means that VolunteerMatch will be able to have even greater positive impact by enabling third parties (social networks and widget-makers) to access their data and ultimately make volunteer opportunities accessible in a variety of ways.

This is a very good thing.
