Guest Post: Social Actions Roundup #17
Note: The online social activism sector is growing all the time, and sharing information and ideas is crucial to continuing that growth – and the very impact on society. We’re happy to carry the excellent Social Actions Round-up of links and resources here at CauseWired, created by the prolific and plugged-in Joe Solomon. Enjoy it – and pass it along!
Despite the holiday schedule, we witnessed an explosion of reports, articles and presentations over the last seven days on how the online philanthropic landscape is shifting. In this round up, you’ll find links to material from The Hewlett Foundation, The MacAurther Foundation, The Mozilla Foundation, MSNBC, Cone Inc, Beth Kanter, Tom Watson, TechCrunch, and more.
We start the round-up with links to two break-through online fundraising campaigns: EpicChange’s TweetsGiving initiative (which raised over $10,000 in 48 hours from 336 contributors) and the British Humanist Association’s fundraising page on JustGiving (which raised over £100,000 in 7 days from 6,680 contributors).
