Highlighting nonprofit organizations and individuals doing stellar work!

  • The Center for Investigative Reporting, a non-partisan nonprofit journalism organization based in California, recently presented the results of its investigation of America’s 50 Worst Charities in collaboration with the Tampa Bay Times. These findings are important not only for the sector but for those who choose to donate their resources.
  • The Phillips Collection in Washington, D.C. sent my art-geek heart aflutter with #breakfortart. During July and August 2013, the museum will discuss a selected work of art from its collection via Twitter. The Phillips should be commended for innovative audience engagement (check out the Storify) and using Visual Thinking Strategies to guide the conversation.
  • Anyone who’s working with a summer camp, class, workshop, or project for youth. I know most of you are putting in long hours with little pay (or none at all – yay volunteers!) but your dedication is inspiring.
