There's Earth Day for the planet and now there's Dries Day for Drupal. To celebrate, we're asking everyone in the community to spend the day on Drupal community projects: plan a camp, do a training, work on modules, push code, write documentation, read about Drupal 8 or whatever you find interesting. This is not a bad price to pay for all the great stuff in Drupal. If you're an employer, we encourage you to give your employees a paid day to work on Drupal.
It's simple to participate:
Have your team participate on Dries Day
Tally the number of hours your team contributed
Use the signage for posting your hours
Send a photo and post on Facebook.com/driesday
Enjoy the good kharma and extra marketing exposure: tweet your participation using the hashtag #driesday
Dries is the founder of Drupal and November 19 is his birthday. We are declaring a new international holiday to celebrate the Drupal Project.

"Pitch in helping the community for a day" - this is the big request. It doesn't have to been actually on Nov 19, you can do it after work, or the weekend before, or after. It becomes a Super Sprint. Thousands of people all over the world doing something to improve the state of Drupal. I think it's a great birthday present to Dries from us.
