London, England

Free online tools + Education = Progress

"(Online) social networks... are the growth economies of the internet. And the rapid growth of social interaction online will lead to deeper changes for the charity sector, as people seek trusted personal connections in place of corporate communications..."

"The overwhelming majority of charities ... want to engage with supporters in social networks... The pioneering work of charities online already shows how the sector's landscape will change irrevocably, and for the better." - The Guardian - Society

"The number of charities using blogs, YouTube, Flickr and other social media tools, along with mobile technologies in campaigns, will rise this year. The challenge will be choosing the right combination."
- From Third Sector Magazine.
