It's Good To Do Good

01/31/2006

Sometimes bloggers have the coolest opportunities to have fun and do good too. Blog buddy Susan Getgood, Marketing Roadmaps, is helping HP with an innovative fund raising project for Habitat for Humanity...an eBay auction of autographed photos, printers (yes printers!) and more. HP's sponsorship at Sundance Film Festival  provides access to celebs galore. To support the project HP launched a blog - Backstage at Sundance - real people blogging their experiences at the festival. Great use of blogs. The auction begins Feb 6.

Finally - experience counts! The non profit organization Civic Ventures is doing more than just celebrating innovative ideas from an overlooked segment: people over 60. Civic Ventures is looking for 5 people 60+ who are "taking on society's biggest challenges..and creating new opportunities, programs and making lasting changes." Civic Ventures are showing them the money! The Purpose Prize Awards $100,000 to each innovator. Submission deadline is Feb 28.
