Worth Mentioning

It’s always hard writing about for-profit organizations engaged in actions and projects of Social Entrepreneurship and Social Change because, it’s often hard to know when good intentions ends and mis-management starts.

I’ve heard many say that they would not donate to charitable organizations until they were 100% sure that 100% of their money was going to the recipients. I don’t think this is a good reason because it’s often impossible to know. We can’t keep from reaching out when we are able to do so, because of this. It’s a poor excuse for not acting.

These organizations are for-profit organizations that do one thing or another related to bringing Social Change in developing countries. Cynisism, Politics, Ulterior motives (and everything I learned in my Global Health classes) aside, I think they are worth highlighting.

Some are well known, others are not. Either way, they are worth mentioning.

    Interesting point. And many who aren’t willing to donate to charities unless they know that 100% goes to the recipients are willing to support corporations who do some type of social entrepreneurship with no questions asked too.
