everybody in the world should join this. it was started by a woman (named Anna) who's an incredibly brilliant and compassionate visionary! seriously, don't miss out on this one.
We all want to give back and Five for Fairness makes it so easy. They are an incredible organization based on a genius model that makes it possible for even the laziest philanthropic minded person to engage. I love their focus on women and girls to make for a more equal and just world. This non-profit is one that everyone should join. It takes just a little bit of money ($5)!!! to feel a part of the bigger picture.
So happy to have found a way to be involved with 5 for Fairness. This is a great way for people to become aware of projects around the world that help women's causes for a $5 donation. I became aware of 5 for Fairness as my daughter was interning for Voice for Girls in India. Camp Voice was entered as a non-profit to win a $5000 grant. We worked hard in the first cycle and didn't win, but the second time I was involved Camp Voice got enough vote to win! I think this brings awareness to all the groups that are in the running for the grant.
Anna McDonnell brings a nurturing, giving, highly researched, intelligent 'real human dimension' to everything she touches. I think, in founding "5 For Fairness" she has been clever to make all barriers to entry low. The ground swell has been huge and as Anna intended, people are 'educating themselves and each other and helping find solutions' that are most definitely going to make a difference! This is NOT a 'throw money at it without involvement or too much thought' kind of philanthropy . Through a lot of hard work Anna has set it up so that it is do-able for every member to be as hands on as they are able to be. Another plus - all members must vote and that means they have a duty to be informed. How great is that vis-a vis the ripple effect!
This is a fantastic non-profit with a clear mission, a strength-based approach, well chosen target organizations, and superior management.
This is a great charity. It offers the opportunity for everyone to participate, actively, in choosing what causes they think are worthy, and to lobby fellow members to vote for the one they believe in most. It educates us while helping others. It is empowering to belong to this group.
I have been active in charitable organizations for many years, both as a volunteer and a donor.
What I particularly admire about 5forFairness is it's egalitarian nature. No one member is any more important than any other.
And it is a model of efficiency. All the money that is donated goes directly to the recipient, and it's reach is truly global.
I love the concept of 5 for Fairness because it encompasses a large community and raises awareness about important issues for women. Their approach is creative and simple and allows people who have $5 and a desire to help women make a difference!
5 for Fairness is an innovative site that allows you to be part of a wonderful community that supports the rights of girls all around the world. It's easy to join, easy to participate, and the results are clear and immediate. All the funds raised go to directly to the needy, and you are a part of choosing which organization to support, how the money gets directed. I love being a part of a charity organization that is grass roots, participatory, informative, lean, as well as organically educational. I couldn't recommend it more.
