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.
