GetActive, NetSquared and Squidoo have partnered to create a list of the 59 smartest nonprofit organizations online.
These charities were chosen for their excellence in online storytelling and collaboration with their donors. We didn't play favorites to one cause over another, nor did we look at their fundraising goals or number of members. Instead, these organizations are winners because of their web 2.0 smarts and a willingness to engage their constituents far beyond asking them to dig into their pockets.
These are organizations that give their volunteers and members a voice and get out of the way. They're pros at mobilizing awareness online. They're experimentors. Innovators. On a mission. They're fearless.

Sometimes I wonder if it's about changing the world or promoting Worldchanging. The book, the site, this award. . .always something urging us to promote the profits . ..all in favor of a thriving business model that supports good work, but you guys take it a bit over the top at times. This isn't a popularity contest - it's a fucking war to save the Earth.
I agree with the post above.This is my first time to this site and I've been all over it.It seems like everyone is more interested in tooting their own horn than getting in to some meat and potatos saving the world.I see nothing here the common man can do or read that will help save the world in the mother earth news vain.Be more anonymous,get your hands dirty and quit looking to have your picture taken..
I just purchased the book and have begun reading. I totally support the idea that there is technology, expertise, and minds available to allow and support a good life for all, with all sharing in striving for and maintaining a healthy planet. If most of us do a little, those in influencial places can do a lot.
1. Be an example and recycle, conserve, reduce waste.
2. Be happy with what you have; be happy with yourself.
3. Support all efforts locally, nationally, and internationally, as you can, to bring the planet together.
4. Don't let important issues be swept under the table or hidden; keep the topics on the table.
5. Reduce greed, share.
