In 2012, I co-foundedÂ an online platform, similar to a wedding registry, where donors couldÂ send nonprofits real goods. As a result,Â GivingSomeThing.comÂ helped nonprofits and donors connect in a more tangible, transparent way. We helped thousands of donors send hundred of nonprofits nearly $100,000 worth of tangible goods.
As part of our outreach, Mike Stone and I embarked onÂ The Voluntour, a 7-week, volunteering road trip where circumvented the United States, lentÂ a helping hand in 20 cities, and learned more about the nonprofits that we served.
We appreciate everyone who walked with us down this path, supported a new idea, and expressing their care forÂ our countryâ€™s admirable charitable causes.
