On The Web - Causecast
To help individuals interested in various causes connect with leaders, nonprofits, and other citizens.
Launched in September 2008, Causecast utilizes aspects of social networking, popular entertainment, and technology to educate individuals about social causes and help them get involved with the causes and organizations that interest them most. Causecast also partners with other nonprofits to host events, such as a recent screening of a film about Ugandan child soldiers that was co-hosted by Invisible Children.
