Welcome to those of you coming from the New York Times. Feel free to poke around the site and the archives, and if you’re so inclined, to visit some of the micro-charities we’ve profiled. (And if you’re taken with Susan Tom in particular, you can contribute to the Tom Family Education Trust here.) Further, if you’re a blogger (or just someone who would like to receive an email profiling a micro-charity from time to time) and would like to join the network you may do so here.
And finally, an update. I’ve held off on profiling another micro-charity for a while so that I could make arrangements for this announcement: I’ve established Strengthen The Good as a 503/c non-profit organization. The paperwork just came through, so those who do donate through this site will be able to do so and claim the appropriate tax deduction.
Now that that’s done, I have two micro-charities that I’ll profile in the next several weeks or so … and both are thing I think will make lots of people feel good.
Until then: don’t just fight evil–strengthen the good.
