Facebook is finally trying to make it easier for nonprofits to utilize their platform.
They recently published a website devoted to “tools and tips to help your cause and build your comminity.”

Looking for something a little different this Christmas? Why not try supporting your local non-profit? It’s a tough fundraising year and organizations that rely on support from individuals to meet their budgetary needs are suffering right now. So, instead of giving that $50 Target gift card to your cousin, why not make a $50 donation in their name and give them a nice greeting card instead?
Here are a few local non-profits you might consider supporting if you’re in the Los Angeles area.
And, here’s a list of internationally reaching organizations that a friend of mine compiled in honor of the season.
