Bank of America took out a billboard in New York’s Time Square as part of a brand campaign. Each week, the billboard highlights various nonprofit partners and encourages passersby to tweet support of the organization.

Victims are not always women, or even married to the abuser. A victim does not have to be hit to suffer the effects of the abuse or the long term damage that it’s caused.
I suppose I should put a trigger warning on this. It contains a discussion on abuse, physical, sexual and others and focuses a fair bit on domestic violence as an example. If this is likely to cause an extreme reaction or cause any traumatic responses? Stop reading. I wrote this mainly to cover the commendation I’ve seen about the incident of sexual harassment that’s been festering within our community but it’s open for others to view and share their views. My ask box is open and anonymous questions are allowed.
Whats not to love here…We loved the idea of Oregon Public House, the Portland-based, nonprofit philanthropub, but we didn’t realize that it had so many awesome cousins: others have similar set-ups: Washington, D.C.-area bar Cause also donates 100 percent of its profits to local charities, and encourages i…
I’d love to have one of these near me.
So, today I’ll share something extremely personal. I just need to put it out there.
I come from an abusive home.

Hurricane Sandy affected 17 states in the Northeast, bringing particularly devastating losses to New Jersey and New York. This month, CharitySub is partnering with charities that are helping the thousands that are still getting back on their feet. While the losses are calculated into the billions, our charities work to restore the priceless neighborhoods, local businesses and communities that lost more than their fair share during the storm.
Join us as we look back at Hurricane Sandy, and support three great organizations that are helping an entire region put the pieces back together, months after the storm.
OK, first let’s define some terms. Here, I’m using the label ‘sensor journalism’ to mean the nascent practice of deploying a large number of sensors around an area, taking readings from those sensors then compiling the readings to give an audience a picture of what’s going on in the space.
It’s our Birthday!
CharitySub directly helped more than 4,004 people, but that’s only a small portion of the impact we made in 2012. Not all of the work made possible by our donations is easily quantifiable.
Through donations for things like water tests, food pantries, school supplies and policy changing efforts, we have surely touched the lives of thousands more. We are so excited to see what 2013 has in store!

Our members support a different cause each month, and for Veterans Day we are sharing a range of engaging infographics (see below) that tell the story of the plight of many of our returning veterans in the U.S.Amy Crews, Co-Founder of CharitySub, said the CharitySub team hoped that by telling these facts through clear, concise and visually appealing infographics, our members would help to raise more awareness of these issues along with their donations which go towards supporting our returning veterans.“We are working with three non-profits this month - The Blind Veteran Association, Puppies Behind Bars and The Jericho Project – all working to give our veterans the extra support they need.If you are interested in using this engaging and shareable content to accompany a story for Veterans Day this November, please don’t hesitate to contact us.We can also put you in touch with our leading non-profit partners who throughout the month are on hand to share personal stories about the work being done to address some of the hardest hitting issues that affect veterans.CharitySub wants to encourage as many people as possible to share the facts.
