WellGood, Charities of the Day
As the force behind multiple non-profit initiatives, WellGood has been instrumental in impacting hundreds of charities through the creation of ChangingthePresent.org providing an avenue for donors to share their philanthropic interests with friends as well as purchase gifts for others in the name of charity. Assisting charities in maximizing the benefit of modern business practices and the internet in particular, WellGood's consulting efforts are helping to change giving from just a transaction to the expression of one's own values.
Their latest creation, ClassWish.org, matches classroom needs with interested donors to ensure necessary supplies and equipment are available for the benefit of children in school.
The tax-deductible donations are organized through ClassWish which allows teachers to make a personalized Wish List to suit their particular situation. This innovative website keeps our teachers from shelling out their own hard-earned money for classroom items and ensures the children will receive a more complete school experience. I have to say I appreciate the idea of supporting schools directly as opposed to purchasing more cookie dough and wrapping paper I don't need.
