Work that needs you…

October is Nonprofit Career Month! Why work with a nonprofit? Here are a couple of reflections:

It’s a labor of love… I have been a consultant for nonprofits for nearly 25 years. I have first and foremost been drawn to the cause which equates to serving a specific population; the cause has almost always been surrounded and supported by like-minded, extraordinary people; because ultimately the work has been a labor of love not overwhelming salaries.Charlene  

The power of media creation is still in the hands of the rich – those with expensive computers, broadband connections, and the necessary knowledge. And let’s not forget how difficult it is to create stuff when you’re working hard trying to support yourself (and your family, in certain cases). When I look at Homeless Nation, I see people actively working to topple that structure. They give homeless people what is necessary to reach people, just like podcasters and videobloggers are trying to reach people. They aren’t deciding what’s worthy – instead, they’re placing that in the hands of their users. For that reason, I want to be a part of what they are doing.      Homeless Nation
