It can be quite hard to grasp what 8 Hours' Overtime for a Good Cause is really like. 8i is different in every city and every year. We asked co-organizer Mark Meinema to describe his experience with '8 uur overwerken voor het goede doel' in Groningen (The Netherlands) in 2013:
"For me, 8i2013 was stunning evidence that a fantastic event can be organized in very little time (most of the work was done in less than a month!), as long as you’re surrounded by some truly fantastic people.
And it only got better because of the fabulous creative teams. I can still hardly believe that 8i generates so much energy in just one night. But most importantly, we made some products for the good cause organizations that really rocked!"
