At the end of the year I’m thinking about my favorite doings in 2013, from my blog and Nonprofit Radio.

Do you know the movie that “I gotta have me my posts & shows” is a reference from? Private message me. If you get it right you can pick a book from the 30 I have been given by Nonprofit Radio guests. First to message me privately gets the biggest selection to choose from, and so on. Postage is on me!

You have my best wishes for a Happy New Year!

Giving Tuesday Round-Up of Round-Ups

Giving Tuesday official logo 2013

The 2nd annual national day of giving—#GivingTuesday—was December 3 in the U.S. The purpose is to refocus the country on giving after Thanksgiving, which is followed by consumption on Black Friday, Small Business Saturday and Cyber Monday. (No corporate interest has claimed Sunday. I predict a religious or atheist group will.)

Giving Tuesday was a big success. Many thousands of charities were in, as well as cities, countries and the White House.

Here’s my round-up of round-ups. A content carnival for Giving Tuesday.

Why So Successful

Skepticism
