Tuesday, May 29 – In the News


PHILANTHROPY/FUNDRAISING
Facebook.com members can now raise money for nonprofits (SanFran Chronicle, 5/25) – Project-Agape (which I wrote about a couple of weeks ago) has launched via Facebook.com. Members of this popular social networking site can now “start a cause, nurture it through e-mail invitations and raise money from their networks of online friends to support any one of the more than 1.5 million registered nonprofits in the United States… A “scorecard” on their profile page will track how many people they have recruited and how much money they have raised for their cause. Techcrunch.com has more. (Nonprofits: sign up).  Facebook has 24 million members, and is growing by about 150,000 per day.

  1. Yeah the owner of facebook was offered a Billion odd for the site but obviously the mans on a crusade to save the world and hopefully chop of the head of the google dragon.

    Well good luck to him . The internet is full of charlatan profiteers it’s nice to see some compassion out there. But he aint the first developers have been doing this for years.

    Hats off.
