Meet the NTEN Community
The NTEN Community is full of great folks. Here are just a few of them.
The Cause Project
I am extremely excited about launching a new online platform for charities and non-profit organizations. It's called The Cause Project because it connects individuals with causes and the projects they are passionate about. It also lets individuals get involved with causes online. (at home or at the office). It connects everyone with Facebook & Twitter so they can spread the word.
My background as a volunteer for various organizations prompted me to develop The Cause Project. I have chaired a Gala, managed my kids hockey teams, sold ads for charitable publications and created newborn layettes (all in the name of charity). I am passionate about my family and philanthropy. These are the things that make me feel good.
