The Giving Carnival

Don’t forget to submit or email me your post for the next edition of The Giving Carnival. The deadline is tomorrow night.

It is not enough to simply say that an organization is “doing good”. How much good are they doing and how effective are they are turning “inputs” (donations and/or investment dollars) into social “outputs”?
