While I was sitting around the house this morning, an idea popped in my head. The idea was simple. I should find local nonprofits on Twitter and follow them. Now, I agree this may not sound like a lot of fun, but when you're a nerd like me things like this sound exciting.
To my surprise, after a short search, I was unable to find a good local list. I looked through directories, lists and users and found nothing that satisfied me. There are wonderful Twitter users like @nonprofitorgs who are compiling comprehensive lists of all nonprofits, but that is a little more than I want. I want to just read about the LA area. No one seemed to be doing that. So, I started @bhimes/la-nonprofits. It's a Twitter list for Los Angeles area Non Profit Organizations.
At this point it is a work in progress, but the plan is to grow the list and I can only do that with your help. Please suggest Los Angeles area nonprofits for me to add. You can leave a comment here, or send a reply to @bhimes on Twitter. Thanks.
