A few weeks ago, I joined Shared Nation, which is an interesting crowdsourcing site that directs grants to lucky organizations picked by vote from Shared Nation members. Today, I voted in an open round, choosing among interesting organizations in five head-to-head races. (You’re not presented with every organization in the running, just five head-to-head races.) Quarterfinals will be announced soon for the next round of funding. I’ll start talking about the organizations I vote for as we get closer to the finals.
