This is my second post as part of my participation in phase 2 of the Nonprofit Blog Exchange Project. Today's post is about grassroots.org/blog
Grassroots.org's mission is to spread social information throughout the world, and to provide free services to charities to help them save money and further their own missions. They think that people have to act together to represent common global interests. They are concentrating on using the Internet to fulfill their mission.
Grassroots.org does not seek to push any particular subject or action on you but merely encourages you to study and act on the issues you care about. The sites explain the basics of many important issues and contain links to excellent resources.
Grassroots.org's virtual community comprises organizations and people the world over who believe common citizens working in concert can and will make a profound difference. Grassroots.org acts as a clearinghouse for tools and information to enable non-profits and individuals to conduct their charitable activities as efficiently as possible. Grassroots.org provides free Internet services to charities, including full-featured web hosting and email services. They provide non-profit consulting to charities at no charge including assistance with the following: incorporation, application for tax-exempt 501c3 status with the IRS, general employment, tax and risk management issues.
Grassroots.org also provides content and links on the above topics to web users throughout the world. Grassroots.org is a very heavily trafficked web site due to the fact that many other sites feed in to it like Crime.org, Homeless.org, Relief.org, PublicService.org, Diseases.org, and hundreds more related and unrelated sites. Their content and linked sites are viewed throughout the world by many thousands of people each day.
This is really a one of a kind website and blog with a very wide breath of material. It's worth checking out.
