To connect nonprofits and their supporters in an age where everything is going mobile.
In an age where companies need to “go mobile or go home,” nonprofits are at a disadvantage because they are stretched too thinly and rely on volunteerism. I am currently in the process of trying to build a company that helps bridge the gap between nonprofits and mobile apps. That’s all I’ll really say about that for now (wouldn’t want someone running off with my idea 🙂 ).
Campaignerships, my blog, is meant to give you all a heads-up on any “cool” apps that I find focused on social good, as well as neat campaigns I find that have been produced by nonprofits. I tend to focus on collaborative campaigns – those that were put together by more than one organization – but if I find something great, I try to spread the word!
Who’s behind this?
Since 2002 I have worked as a mental health advocate. While in high school, I co-founded a group meant to educate my community and spread awareness about suicide and substance abuse prevention. Since then I have taken my work to both a state and national level. I have been fortunate enough to work with many nonprofit organizations and truly learn what makes them tick (and why some fail).
Once I graduated college I worked at a startup company based in Cambridge, MA as the Director of Marketing and Outreach, while continuing my advocacy work with various organizations. As soon as I parted ways with my former employer, I’ve had the “entrepreneurial itch.” With my background working for causes that I’m passionate about, I wanted to find a way to capitalize on my interests in technology and nonprofits.
