Assets in Web 2.0: How to Kick Philanthropic A@!

Problem: Waste. I hate waste! Assets and resources in our society are under-utilized, wasted, and thrown away. We have a lot of non-profit organizations who need resources (services, items, funding) and don't know where to get them. We also have a lot of non-profit organizations, corporations, and individuals who have built up resources and services they can share, but they’re not finding each other.
Solution: In my experience of Co-founding Goodwill Globetrotting and working with community leaders across the world, I’ve found that we can solve this dilemma by having a centralized location for these agents of change to find and share resources, and communicate. That being said, Connect2Good is a web 2.0 networking community that brings together organizations that have assets with agents of change that need those resources. In this session I’ll focus on how everyday citizens are being empowered to work within a multi-stakeholder network to bring about real change in their community.
