GlobalGiving is a non-profit that helps other non-profits raise donations for their projects. They help "underdogs" all over the world who are seeking funds for their creative projects. There's a section where you can donate to technology projects, such as: - Provide a Computer for Afghan Girls -Inclusion For People With Disabilities In Colombia Some of these projects are part of the Microsoft YouthSpark project - a partnership with the Microsoft company to empower youth. I think this is a really great organization. Lately I've been interested in learning more about non-profits and technology and it has been refreshing to find so many organizations such as this one that are helping other non-profits. All donations go through the GlobalGiving Foundation, which receives a nominal 15% fulfillment fee to help cover the costs of running GlobalGiving. After learning more about this, I want to donate more often. Perhaps cut out my frequent visits to Starbucks and give some money to help humanity!
Is this similar to micro-investing? This sounds like a really cool project, I hope it succeeds!
Non-profit for non-profit? Great idea!
Good for you @Techatheart! You're donations will probably make you feel better than any starbucks drink would :)
"Perhaps cut out my frequent visits to Starbucks and give some money to help humanity!" Hahaha True that!
