As the economy continues to decline, the nonprofit sector is taking a big hit. State and municipal funds have dried up, foundations are struggling with poor investment returns and many of the big individual donors are worried about keeping their jobs.
Edelman and a few other organizations in the Chicago area are supporting the Off the Street Club (OTSC), which provides inner city kids with a summer of swimming, horseback riding and cookouts at Camp Mathieu.
So, please take a minute and make a modest donation - even $5 makes a real difference. You can donate using the ChipIn widget below (see, I told you this used social media tools).
Not sure? Visit their Facebook page and watch the brief 2 minute video.
PS - for those who were at the SIIA Twitter panel on Wednesday, this program is part of the Friday $5 Twitter Challenge from Amanda Mooney, the Edelman social media maven I mentioned.
