5 for Fairness (http://5forfairness.org/) tops my list of the many great non-profit organizations out there. Why? It's run by US, yes, the volunteers - under the wonderful guidance of Anna McDonnell, who started the whole thing and probably works the hardest! Several worthy organizations are brought forth by US, then voted for by US, the one receiving the most votes gets the grant. Then we start the grant cycle all over again. There is no doubt where my money and effort is going and who it's going to serve. Everything is transparent in 5 for Fairness. You can get as involved as you have time for. This is a great grass roots charitable organization and I'm so glad I found them!

I've been a member of 5 for Fairness since summer, 2009 and have been so impressed by the way the foundation is set up, the way it has grown into an international community and how we members really do help make life better for girls, around the word. The internet has allowed us to be an interactive community, a philanthropic foundation with zero overhead whose members range in age from 15 to 85! Every member is able to nominate a non-proft program they admire, as long as it is dedicated to helping girls. Every member can get involved by inviting new members, raising money, and adding videos, informative links and inspiring personal stoires to our website. And every member has a say (a vote) in chosing our grantee, once we raise the $5,000.00 grant we give away. We set out to try and make the world a better place and we find that it is each of us who is changed by the experience.

I was introduced to 5 For Fairness last year. I had just returned from doing human rights work in the The Congo and was trying to raise money for the amazing organization, Man Up-- a global youth initiative that helps discover solutions to stop violence against women and young girls. My freind Helen Bartlett told me about 5 For Fairness and introduced me to Anna McDonnell and her son Eliot. Eliot had submitted Man Up in the 5 For Fairness grant competition. Although MU came in second, awareness was raised not only regarding the Man Up campaign but about the horrific violence happening in the Congo.

5forfairness is filled with passion. The orginization is reletively small but has an incredible community of people who are profoundly interested in fostering fairness for girls both locally and internationally. 5forfairness allows for the fullest spectrum of recipients in the fairest way possible. it may not have any sort of groundbreaking new aspect of fairness for girls which it seeks to resolve, but rather it helps support all aspects of fairness for girls in a way that really makes a difference. 5forfairness is a groundbreaking idea in and of itself that helps heal an ongoing crises through the opinions of passionate members of the 5forfairness community. nobody is excluded from 5forfairness, it gets people who care involved who otherwise would not have the opportunity. it opens up worlds for its own community while helping open up new worlds for girls everywhere. This orginization is a beautiful thing filled with beautiful people and should be supported at any cost.

As members discuss the various groups, a certain synergy is formed as different experiences and ways of thought fuse to make this site as great as it is. Through this synergy, we have our amazing Teams and incredible discussions all in the process of helping those in need around the world.

I am a member of 5 For Fairness and have enjoyed every moment of my experience on the site. It's not just that the site is well managed and populated by engaged intelligent people, or even that it raises money for incredibly worthy causes. What separates this site from others is that it its members and administrators seem to have a very personal, emotional investment to the causes that are brought to the site. Women of the world couldn't be in better hands.

I started working with 5 for Fairness last year and recently taken on a larger role. I think the power of this organization is not in the numbers (well not yet at least), but rather in the fact that it uses social networking to create equality for women internationally. Someone can spend as little as 5 minutes on the site and learn something new about an organization while connecting with other activists across the globe. The world is changing and the internet has become an important tool for promoting causes and raising money. I hope that more people will join the site soon and help us create equality for all!
