About GlobalGiving

All donations go through the GlobalGiving Foundation, a registered 501(c)3 organization, which receives a nominal 15% fee. This helps cover the cost of operating the marketplace – finding and researching projects, supporting project leaders in the field, attracting donors, and building our website. It also includes the fees assessed by vendors for credit card processing. Donors can choose whether to make an incremental contribution to cover the fee, or to have it deducted from their donation.

They also provide businesses and other organizations with custom giving services and help them with their specific giving needs. Some of our corporate partners include eBay, Ford, the Gap, HP, Nike, and Yahoo!

Listing projects on GlobalGiving.com

When you work with GlobalGiving.com, they help you raise money to cover the costs of specific projects your organization is working on. You may be building a school or providing medical services to women or doing any number of activities. On GlobalGiving.org, donors do not donate to your organization in general, but donate money that must be dedicated to covering the costs of a specific project, not overhead and administration of your organization in general.

If you are interested in listing a project for your organization on GlobalGiving you can find out more by going to our project nomination page. They exist to help and serve grassroots charitable organizations. GlobalGiving provides our charitable partners with access to new donors, online fundraising training, media exposure and a cost-effective online fundraising platform.

Angelina Jolie Christian Louboutin pumps

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt left the kids home for a night out at a book party last night in West Hollywood at the Pacific Design Center. The book party was for a book called Half the Sky. The book is about the oppression women face in other parts of the the world and what needs to be done to help them get out of these situations and give them more opportunities that we take for granted in our everyday lives. Click here to get your own copy of Half the Sky: Turning Oppression into Opportunity for Women Worldwide.

I have a Kiva account where I donate $25 at a time to a woman in a third world country who is trying to start her own business and the money gets paid back when their business starts taking off. Once a woman pays back her loan from me, the money is ready to be loaned out to a different woman starting her own business. It is a brilliant concept and I have loaned out the same $25 several times to several different women who have started companies and managed to pay back their loans. It is a great way to help in a small way. The book Half the Sky mentions Kiva and other small ways we can all help to make the world a better place. Kiva is a great way to get started.

Angelina Jolie was seen wearing a black open back dress, her Christian Louboutin Simple 100 black pumps, and using her black Ferragamo leather clutch. Click here to get her Christian Louboutin Simple 100 black pumps.
