Search for Charity

I wrote a while back about UN Online Volunteering, and I finally received my placement. Of course, this is very exciting news. I am working with the Ann Foundation, which works in underdeveloped countries to create opportunities for children with disabilities.

To raise money, the organization is part of GoodSearch, which is a search engine that donates a penny to the charity you designate every time you search. All you have to do is go to the site and type in Ann Foundation and search away, and our organization will recieve funding!

GoodSearch: You Search...We Give!

It's nice to see that there are places on the internet sponsoring charitable causes. We all search, so there is really no reason not to give this a try.

The New York Times gets it!

I graduated from college with a degree in Journalism, which also means 4 years of thinking about what will be the future of the industry. It seems as though blogging it is, and the New York Times really gets it by publishing the Baghdad Bureau blog.

I think this blog, as it is written by journalists who are there on the scene in a place that many of us will fortunately never completely understand, really sets the stage for an interesting future for journalism.

Check it out! I'm really interested by this.
