I also, though, spend time coding for recreation. I'd be chalking this up under that category. The fact that these people will benefit is secondary to me, if I didn't want to build it it'd be an easy no.
They aren't in a position to offer me any money, it's me for free or nobody, and I would feel good about alleviating their stress. Value created is incidental.
I don't necessarily disagree, just trying to explore it.
You talked about classrooms and staff, so I guess we are talking about a school. Is it privately owned ? Or part of a school board ?
It's a preschool operated as part of a larger non-profit. No pockets will be lined.
I thought it was a school board owned school. Still, non-profits can still pay to get something, but I understand more your motives to do it free. In the end, it's you that makes the call. Do it if it lines up with what you believe is the right thing and don't overstrain yourself.
I really appreciate your perspective!
