I’m a fan of the web-site WeAreWhatWeDo – a not-for-profit company that creates ways for millions of people to do more small, good things, helping address major social and environmental issues.

I’ve mentioned before that my Mom, who’s retired and had never used a computer before, got on-line last year. Whilst she’s getting more web-savvy now, a tool like Internet buttons would still be very helpful to her as she explores on-line.

To set yourself up as a “mentor” and create a page for someone, just visit http://www.internetbuttons.org/newmentor/#edit and get started for free!

I think this is a great example of a web-site that can really help get people on-line – well done to all involved in setting it up!
