    No love for United Cerebral Palsy? That’s okay. We’ll make it up to you. So glad you are out there in this world to support all of the nonprofits in their adventures into Web 2.0.

    Thanks for everything, Heather.

    I must jump in and mention ChristmasFuture soon to be uend: as of October 15, 09. It is a web-based not for profit that supports community development projects in the developing world that focus on ending extreme poverty. We do this through encouraging the developed world to redirect their consumer spending towards supporting anti- poverty projects on the website (i.e. do you really need the extra sweater or that new tech thing-ma-jig). 100% of the funds given as gifts on the website go to the projects. The projects send proof of impact of how the dollars were spent back to the people that supported the project.
    You have to check it out at http://www.christmasfuture.org – everyday people can change the world one gift at a time! Ending extreme poverty is achievable in our lifetime.

    Thanks for all the great work you are doing to help nonprofits. I wanted to reach out and introduce The FreeGirl Foundation to you. FreeGirl is a registered 501(c3) nonprofit organization created to raise awareness around gender based violence directed toward women and girls around the world.

    Thru a multi-media platform including Publishing, Film, Music and the Cultural/Performing Arts we will keep issues facing the female community at the forefront of public awareness.

    Thanks Once Again!!

    Whatever you do, keep MPP!! Hype them, in fact!!

    IMO, MPP is a revolutionary non-profit that works to reform laws that have been systematically brutalizing decent American citizens for decades.

    Great pick, my friend!

    Good work on showcasing all these worthy charities! If I had an extra dime I’d help, and will when I’m back employed! The medical cannabis issue is VERY worthy, and if our government ever quits fighting a WAR on a PLANT, they could pull this country out of the recession, add millions of green jobs in the hemp industry in little backward places like here in Kentucky, empty thousands of CONTRACTED prisons which house non-violent weed smokers, and give them all jobs out in the fields! This “controlling” of the common man and his personal habits/vices/HUMAN WEAKNESSES was never intended by the authors of the Constitution.

    And FreeGirl – I TOTALLY agree with you on the abuse of females being exposed! The treatment women are subjected to by supposed “men” at times is especially vile to me. Women need better treatment all-around. I think of you all tonight regarding health care. Lord knows women have a BIG voice in this issue, and would be wise to use it!

    Great work you’re doing for Non-profits! Mine is a for-profit website committed to giving 10% of all purchases back to charity and we have just launched a new “Pledge Program” where any registered NPO can customize their own front page for our site, get their own unique URL and when customers shop our site thru that front page, we donate 10% of all purchases to the organization! It’s a win-win and I’d love it if you would share the news – our advertising dollars are obviously in short supply as we’re giving up our margins to charity. here’s the link: https://www.LavishGiving.com then click PLEDGE PROGRAM for details. Thanks for sharing…. between our giving through NetworkForGood.org and this newly launched Pledge Program, our customers have donated to over 30 different organizations since the business launched 6 months ago.

    Hey there – been following you guys for a while now, and have been increasingly impressed with the range of non-profits you support and recognize.

    Question, semi-unrelated, but recently, my organization just launched a Facebook Fan Page http://bit.ly/b7wSEW and I seemed to have accidentally attached the organization’s page to my personal page. The Facebook admin seems to be pretty unresponsive to me regarding how to alter this connection so they are two separate entities. *sigh* Any thoughts?

    And I also wanted to put Caleb on your radar. In brief, Caleb is a non-profit afforable housing organization that provides residential support services to the New England region. Currently supporting about 5,000 residents through supportive services. http://www.twitter.com/CalebFoundation

    I notice you have the National Organization of Women which is a wonderful organization. Please don’t forget about the League of Women Voters (www.lwv.org) which is celebrating its 90th anniversary this year. The LWV got its start the same year women got the right to vote to help educate women so they could exercise their new right knowledgably. Through the decades, this education has expanded to all citizens with members (women and men) becoming very active politically from a nonpartisan grassroots point of view.

    Hi Heather… so, how DO we become one of your favorite non-profits? I know there are a lot of wonderful organizations out there (Clean Forest Project is one of them). I looked on your website to see if there was a way to add our non-profit to your list, but I didn’t find anything.

    Of course, I have to take this opportunity to tell you that my organization, Clean Forest Project, has cleaned up over 460,000 pounds of illegally dumped garbage from Oregon and Northern California’s forests, and we have reached thousands of youth with our education program that teaches kids about the negative effects that illegal dumping has on our environment and on wildlife. We are growing by leaps and bounds, and hope to go national in a few years.

    We also have students who are in need of sponsors for their music lessons due to financial difficulties. Sponsorships are $80 a month (our lessons are $20 per week). We also need instruments and music books that can be donated so we can help those who are need.

    With the recent cutbacks in our school districts the music and arts seem to be one of the hardest hit areas with many teachers losing their jobs and programs being cut. Music stimulates creativity and is the only universal language written the same in all countries.

    Upon receipt of our 501(c )(3) certification we will forward you a receipt.

    We the Board, volunteers and students appreciate your support.

    To Sponsor a student: Contact:

    I have just visited your website (after following you on Twitter) and I am impressed of the great works you are doing for Nonprofit Organizations world-wide.

    My Nonprofit Organization is engaged in the conservation of biodiversity, environmental education and e-learning in Cameroon – Africa. The challenge we face is not only to conserve biodiversity and protect the environment, but also to make others do so and to alleviate poverty in the local communities through the valorization of ecosystem goods and services. We do this through sensitization, public awareness creation, radio/TV talks, print media, etc.

    Our Organization has encountered much difficulties in attaining these goals because of our inadequate financial means.

    We will be glad if your Organization can come to our assistance.

    How do we get involved?

    We are a registered charity looking for individuals to make a meaningful contribution to the lives of people living in Ghana.

    Village by Village works in remote rural villages living in poverty in Ghana, West Africa.
    Volunteering will probably be one of the most worthwhile things that you ever do so make it count.
    Tourists do not get to go to the villages we reach.
    We are a non for profit UK registered charity, meaning…
    100% of the money you raise goes directly to the charity and the communities we work with!
    Why not see what you could do?

    Hi Heather! I know that you have a lot of new nonprofits to check out for consideration. I thought I’d officially add Cooperative for Education (CoEd) to the list. I attended your workshop at the Health Foundation of Greater Cincinnati last spring. You picked out our website as the best one of all of the organizations in the room. CoEd is dedicated to breaking the cycle of poverty in Guatemala through education. I know the country of Guatemala surely holds a special place in your heart!

    Since your awesome workshop, we’ve been reading your book, following your blog, and have made a number of improvements to our social media strategy that incorporate your best practices. We’d love to see CoEd’s avatar on your next list of favorites!
