    This is a great site. I introduced an organization I worked for a few years back to GoodSearch and they are raising more funds now. Looking forward to see where they (GoodSearch) will be in the coming years.

    And of course, I LOVE SocialEarth. Nice redesign, simple and easy to navigate (very important for the time crunched social entrepreneur)!

    All the best,
