We have good news about February winner Innocence Project, right after this quick update...
Re-grow the monthly pot!
If you noticed the pot get smaller recently, you're not imagining things. This is for two reasons:
- Quite a number of holiday gifts of Charitocracy were given at the end of 2016 that boosted the pot significantly throughout 2017.
- Some large donations and corporate matches made outside of charitocracy.org were used to boost the pot early in 2017, whereas this year we'll instead use similar large donations to grow the pot by attracting new donors, which works toward our mission and will hopefully grow the pot more sustainably.
See the previous blog post for ways you can help. Bottom line: convince a friend to join us!
February 2018 winner Innocence Project
Wednesday night we voted in our 6th cause of Charitocracy's 2nd year. Congratulations to Innocence Project and to donor
cperg814 for nominating it! You have 4 more days to further sweeten the pot with a special one-time donation of any amount, which we'll add straight to the check we write to Innocence Project next week. You can find their web site here.
Check out this video about Innocence Project, and feel good about your part in our collective $1072+ grant to help with their work!
The Innocence Project's mission is to free the staggering number of innocent people who remain incarcerated, and to bring reform to the system responsible for their unjust imprisonment.
Have a great March and log into Charitocracy to update your votes or nominate a new cause!
