Message from MPR

My name is Matt Mikus, I’m a digital producer with MPR News.

"
.. I wanted to let you know about a project MPR News is working on … the goal is to amplify acts of kindness in you've seen in your community. Specifically, we are looking for moments when people are helping other people in the community. In a nod to Fred Rogers, in bad times look for the helpers. So, please consider sharing a story about a helper in your community.

We’ll be featuring these exceptional folks and stories throughout the next few weeks. You can submit a story and a picture or video if you have one here: https://mprnews.typeform.com/to/wcB7di

And here’s what we’ve done so far: https://www.mprnews.org/mnhelpers

If you do choose to participate, please consider sharing it on your social media platform of choice with the hashtag #MNhelpers and maybe we can get more of Minnesota taking part and sharing the joy. Thanks for any help on spreading this project around.

And if you can’t think of anyone right now, you can still help by sharing a story we’ve highlighted that you find inspiring through social media.

Thanks again!

Site Information
Beam
  • For the commercial sector, we tend to register startup activities (new companies and new commercial projects) that bring diversification and high-impact opportunities to the area.
  • For the non-profit sector, we wish to shine light on all the organizations and services that otherwise labor under relative obscurity.
  • Our hope is that dmcbeam.org will encourage cross-sector collaborations and creative solutions.

While there are a number of registries in the community, dmcbeam.org's  distinct value is to pilot a database with a data structure and categorizations that answer the questions such as: What organizations or projects/programs in our community that have purported relevance with some of the over-arching focuses put forward by initiatives such as DMC, J2G and Health Improvements?

This database could be used as one of the ways to explore the capacities of the community. If you are someone on an exploratory journey to learn about the greater Rochester community. dmcbeam.org could be an interesting first step.

Definitions
The following defines the various project phases:
  1. Available - a product, program or service is in production
  2. Develop - program or application is being developed
  3. Plan - idea is solid, stakeholders are identified, and there is strong commitment to go forward from all parties.
  4. Concept Phase - idea scoped out with enough details to give an early sizing and/or to build a proof of concept
    demonstration
  5. Pre-concept Phase - an early idea or a requirement.
