Get to Know 15 Social Entrepreneurs, Businesses and Ideas on Squidoo


Whether you are into social media networks or not, Squidoo is a must-use idea for nonprofits, social entrepreneurs and everyday people trying to help raise funds for their venture.  By simply creating a lens (a.k.a. page) about your passions you can raise money from Squidoo’s profit-sharing advertising and donation modules.

For those of you that didn’t read my last article, I do social media marketing for Ashoka. A few months ago I setup their main lens (see below). I also created other lenses that would help inform people about Ashoka’s initiatives like Youth Venture and Social Entrepreneurship. These lenses were great successes in that they informatively granted access to pictures, videos and the true emotion behind these initiatives.

To learn more about charities on Squidoo, visit Squidoo’s own lens on the subject. The Community & Charity Organizer lens starts the list of the Top 15 Social Entrepreneurs, Businesses and Ideas on Squidoo.

    I’m steppingstones. My real name is Shelby, and I come from a humble home in Michigan. This is my first post on hipblogs, and I hope I do this right. I really like the Earth, and realizing new things and getting much too excited over them. I love learning. I lead a vegetarian/vegan lifestyle, and I dance, a lot. I have a fierce addiction to traveling and weddings and ridiculously thorough note-taking in class. I doodle on everything and eat mangoes and ice cream on the roofs of parking garages with my beloved boyfriend. And most of all, I am really, really soft-hearted. So, greetings! It’s nice to meet you.

    Social entrepreneurship is about working without the objective of earning very high profits. Its about helping the poor. What better platform for than Squidoo to raise funds !
