This is a powerful ad, and I’m glad they’re trying to get creative. He’s smiling, but this problem is all too real.

Because I know a nonprofit where women case managers were supposed to have a 4% cost of living raise every year, and the CEO just took it for SIX YEARS, I know first hand the pain of women not having equal pay for equal work. Indeed, most nonprofits I know are staffed primarily by women, and the ED or CEO made 90,000 or 120,000 USD per year, while everyone else was lucky to make $12.00 per hour, or barely $36,000 per year.

Why do we continue to accept these tiny salaries as if they are inescapable facts of life?

And why are we encouraging a culture of destitution? I would love to get your thoughts on my posts, here.

New Zealand’s largest independent conservation organisation wanted nature back on the political agenda. The future…

Can fundraising marketers recreate the #icebucketchallenge?

Yesterday, it finally happened. Somebody challenged me to the Ice Bucket Challenge for ALS. If your internet connection has been broken all summer, it’s this year’s big meme. You can read about it here. To be honest, I felt that the movement had passed its high-water mark when I saw…
