Philanthropy - Social Entrepreneur

I feel it is important to give back to this world.  There are people that are in desperate need.  So we give to churches and charities.  We volunteer our time to help others.  As concerned citizens we try to give to organizations that will maximize our given dollar amounts and time.  There are always moments when we find out about some need or travesty, and we feel compelled to give.  But, have you ever felt the need to start your own charity?  I recently read an article on Inc.com about Scott Harrison and how he started Charity: Water.  It is an interesting article about how to develop a successful charity. If you go to Charity: Water's website you immediately feel how this charity is different. With video, nice aesthetics, and tools for developing fund raising campaigns you immediately feel compelled to join their cause.  It is also interesting how they follow up on their projects, by posting pictures, by gps geotracking, and by blog posts.  You can read the Inc.com article here:

With that being said I have started a page on this blog called JK Philanthropy.  It will have all of the organizations that I try to support and raise funds for.  Please check out this page and donate where and when you feel lead to do so.  Together we can impact the world and make a difference.

Thanks - Jeff
