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!
