Virtual Philanthropy

I am deeply involved in the development of avenues for people to network and contribute to charitable causes through an avatar when they may be unable to do so using their real life identity, due to security concerns. I support efforts such as Kiva and Microplace, ways to invest and help end global poverty. Another involvement is with the humanitarian action of UNICEF. I strongly encourage donation to and sponsorship of these organizations.

Avatars for Change has just launched its $10,000 Change Your World Contest and Avatars for Change needs your help to win! Any Group that recruits 100 members by September 15th will be entered into the contest. Of course if our group wins, the money will be donated to charities! Help us win this contest and come learn more about Avatars for Change by joining our group on Razoo. But your main reason to join should be to support worthwhile causes.
