This project began in August 2011 with an experiment to make a donation to a worthy cause honoring of each Facebook friend having a birthday each week. For a year, I rotated these gifts weekly among six different organizations. The experience was immensely satisfying: my friends seemed genuinely honored and we all became more aware of needs around the world.
Since August 2012 I have been making these gifts to just one cause, Touch the Jungle, hoping to make a greater difference in one specific community. This too has been satisfying, and several of my friends (or their friends) have asked how they might contribute to this project. Until today I have simply pointed them to the TTJ website.
With CrowdRise, however, I can now be a little more forward about asking for contributions without being obnoxious. If you are so inclined, therefore, please feel free to make a small donation here. I currently have about 960 Facebook friends. If one in ten were to give $10 each, it would come to $960, which is my goal.
