with eyes open wide
Ok ok, I am breaking the trend of not posting not-for-profit companies. MY BAD!
Surprisingly I came across another company, which happens to be non-profit, that I definitely wanted to share with you.
I received an email from Avaaz (apparently I registered with them at some point?) and normally I would have deleted it since it looked like something promotional, but I stopped and read it because it really caught my eye. It started out,
“I feel continually grateful for the level of trust that Avaaz donors place in our work every month, and I wanted to make sure you know what happens after you make that important choice to hope and to give!”
Well, isn’t that thoughtful. An organization actually telling their donors what they are doing with the money. Few and far between…
Further down the email, they tell about 4 major things that they are supporting with the help of donations (saving rain forests, providing schooling for Syrian refugees, supporting an Israeli lawyer working with leaders of the Palestinian nonviolent movement, climate change campaign).
Then they remind their readers why they have skyrocketed to over 35 million members in just 5 years:
And that’s why YOU need to check them out and consider supporting their efforts!
