The folks at Craigslist Foundation are doing good work. It's a nonprofit that works to strengthen communities and neighborhoods.
I think we all need to work together to make things better for everyone: treat people like you want to be treated; and now and then, give the other person a break, like being your brother’s or sister’s keeper. That means finding ways to do it.
We’re a collaborative species, relying on each other to survive, and everyone needs to pitch in, now and then. CLF and their programs can help you do this.
This was my first time at Bootcamp and I am new to the nonprofit industry. My goal was to explore and soak up information. It has been a great experience. (Collected in person at Bay Area Bootcamp 2008 and entered by a GreatNonprofits staff member).
