CraigConnects, a forum founded by Craig Newmark, is dedicated to “connecting the world for the common good.” This month, CraigConnects is running a great campaign to benefit our men in uniform; as Craig puts it, “if someone is willing to risk a bullet to protect me, least I can do is to support them.” That is why this month, CraigConnects is running a grant challenge for four veteran oriented nonprofits. The organization that raises the largest number of donations will receive a $100,000 grant.
Craig’s initiative would be admirable at any point of year but is of special interest to us this month. For the month of July, Do the KIND Thing is working to benefit veterans and troops who have risked their lives and given their time to protect our country. To make your KINDNESS count, visit http://www.kindsnacks.com/world/mission.
It will be excited to see which organization wins the grant, as well as to see the realization of projects benefiting soldiers and veterans.
