Strengthen The Good: Operation Charley
Last week I talked about Strengthen the Good, whose tagline reads “Don’t just fight evil: Strengthen the good.” It is all about using many blogs to raise awareness about micro-charities and hopefully do some good in the world. Today is the very first charity, and even though it is a little bigger than a micro-charity, call it a macro-micro-charity, it will definitely do some good. I’ll be posting a new charity every Monday.
Strengthen the Good’s first charity offering is the Gulf Coast Community Foundation of Venice, Fla. The foundation is matching all donations to its Hurricane Charley relief fund up to $100,000, and all funds donated will go directly to relief efforts.You can donate online with a MasterCard or Visa here (all transactions are processed through a Verisign secure server site). If you do, be certain to select the Hurricane Charley Disaster Relief Fund from the drop-down menu, and if you would, please note â€œStrengthen The Goodâ€ in the Special Instructions field â€¦ it will be interesting to learn how much the STG network ultimately contributes.
