The Voluntourist: Q & A with Ken Budd - Verge Magazine: Volunteer abroad, work and travel, study abroad

The Voluntourist: Q & A with Ken Budd - Verge Magazine: Volunteer abroad, work and travel, study abroad | NonProfit Landscapes | Scoop.it

Author Ken Budd discusses international development's favourite dirty word. 

 

When writer and editor Ken Budd’s book came across my desk this spring, it wasn’t so much an exercise in “don’t judge a book by its cover” as it was in “don’t judge a book by its title.” I couldn’t help it—the title The Voluntourist: A six-country tale of love, loss, fatherhood, fate and singing Bon Jovi in Bethlehem left me feeling perplexed. While I do love a good Bon Jovi sing-along (who doesn’t, really?), I’ve been conditioned to be highly skeptical of anyone who actively refers to themselves as a “voluntourist.”

There are good things going on in the world, and it’s important to highlight those things. When tech companies deploy their efforts and resources for good, it hits me, for reasons. Twitter is doing something really awesome, called #Tweet4Good. For every tweet using the #Tweet4Good hashtag, Twitter will give $1 to in ads on the platform to the Red Cross. Up to $20,000.

A New Platform For Real Charity Online

A New Platform For Real Charity Online | NonProfit Landscapes | Scoop.it
Giving to charitable organizations is awesome, but donors are often left wondering how much of their hard-earned cash is actually going to the cause.
Justin Nalepa's insight:

I've always been dubious when it comes to donations towards charitable foundations because of the amount that goes towards overhead costs of the organization. I love the idea of a free-to-use online platform for charitable giving. By getting rid of the processing costs of donations, there's a lot more transparency about where your money is actually going.

You Want To Start A Film Production Company? Why Not Make It A Non-profit?

You Want To Start A Film Production Company?  Why Not Make It A Non-profit? | NonProfit Landscapes | Scoop.it

There are a lot of filmmakers out there who make one feature and then stop. They didn’t break through to that magical “next level,” and there’s no way they’re doing the same thing all over again. But for those of us who are determined to keep making films on a small scale, truly independently—and who actually enjoy it—it makes sense to explore new models in a distribution landscape that’s in the midst of its own creative destruction and reconfiguring.

Great twitter campaign tool for non-profits: Thunderclap. | NonProfit Landscapes | Scoop.it
Thunderclap helps groups of people share a single message all at once.

 

If a tweet falls in the forest...
Social media is an easy way to say something, but it’s a difficult way to be heard. Thunderclap is the first-ever crowdspeaking platform that helps users be heard by saying something together. It allows a single message to be mass-shared, flash mob-style, that rises above the noise of your social networks. By boosting the signal at the same time, Thunderclap helps a single person create action and change like never before.

This Giving Season, Why You Should Donate to Non-Profit News

This Giving Season, Why You Should Donate to Non-Profit News | NonProfit Landscapes | Scoop.it
If you believe in non-profit journalism, it is time to support it. And if you support non-profit journalism it's time to go public with that support.

The end of the year is a hugely important time for non-profit fundraising -- many organizations raise major portions of their budget between Thanksgiving and New Year's Day. This year may be even more important for charitable giving because of the debates in Washington about amending the rules around tax-exempt donations.
