    The Field Center for Children’s Policy, Practice & Research is a non-profit focused on child welfare systemic reform. As a collaboration of the University of Pennsylvania’s Schools of Social Policy & Practice, Law, and Medicine, and the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, the center benefits from some of the nation’s leading experts in the field and is the only center of its kind in the nation. One of our core projects is the development of cutting edge technology to improve outcomes for victims of child abuse and neglect. I would be delighted to speak with you about the center and its work.

    The Home Fire Sprinkler Coalition (HFSC) is a national, 501(c)(3) nonprofit educational organization. All of our materials are free. Our noncommercial educational work focuses on increasing awareness of the danger of home fires and the value of installing home fire sprinkler systems as an effective method to reduce injury and death. This work is important because 85% of US fire deaths are in homes. Those most vulnerable are children, older adults and people with disabilities that make escaping very difficult. Our free materials and programs include a children’s website too: Please consider including HFSC in your list of nonprofits.

    I am the Social Media Marketing Specialist for We have only recently begun launching our mobile app family. A month ago we launched a Video Dictionary to assist with adult literacy and ESL/ELL: This app has done moderately well with only 800 downloads and is currently only available on the iPhone. We intend to make all of our apps available on Android too.

    Our second mobile app that we only launched last Wednesday was our Word 2010 Tutorial App, which is based on the popular tutorials available on our website. In less than a week it has been downloaded more than 1800 times, which we felt was successful:

    The Excel 2010 Tutorial app will hopefully launch by early April and then we will continue with PowerPoint and Access after that. Moving forward, we plan to make all of the tutorials that become available on our website also available as a mobile app.

    I think the applications that we have published are high quality and provide a significant benefit to the users. Even if we aren’t chosen for your book, I encourage you to download our Word and Excel apps as they can be awfully useful when trying to deal with pesky mail merge or figuring our formulas!

    Hello! My nonprofit, Dance to Empower Stronger Health care (DESH), was founded in 2008, back when I was a junior in high school. We’ve since raised over $8,000 for various health care relief efforts in India and have started up a scholarship fund for medical students in India.

    Our mission is to increase health care awareness and improve existing health care conditions in rural India and it would be great if you could mention us in your book!

    Thank you,
    Aparna Ghosh

    Please check out The Ucal McKenzie Breakaway Foundation: at

    Dedication. Discipline. Determination. Ucal McKenzie called them his “three D’s.” And along with teamwork, 
passion and community, they were the driving forces in his life both on and off the soccer field. And they’re the cornerstone of the foundation that will now 
continue his tireless work and honor his legacy: 
The Ucal McKenzie Breakaway Foundation.

    Ucal always believed that youth soccer is a stepping stone to high school soccer and beyond. But there are skills and tools – both physical and mental – that are absolutely vital in preparing them for the next levels of competition. This was a void Ucal always worked hard to fill, and it’s why, starting in Summer 2010, the Breakaway Foundation will continue Ucal’s dream of hosting youth clinics in and around the city of Boston.

    But soccer is just the beginning. The Breakaway Foundation will also sponsor health and wellness initiatives, CPR classes, fitness education, and more, all to promote a strong, vibrant community.
