Visit the $10 Initiative!

Last summer, I wrote about my visit to D.C. with my friends, Nicole and Richie. What I didn't talk about was the project we've been working on ever since, the $10 Initiative.

The $10 Initiative is (to borrow from the website), "a non-profit organization that strives to make quality education accessible to underprivileged students in developing countries." Basically, we get school and nonprofit educational institutions to post in our site projects which need funding and urge donors to give to the projects they want to fund. Our participation is strictly voluntary so 100% of the money you donate goes entirely to the project you specfy. Donation amount is entirely up to the donor and monitoring reports are given to ensure that the money actually goes to project you wanted to fund. Right now, we are hosting projects from the Philippines, Senegal, and Uganda.

I belong to the team that finds partners to work with, so if you know of any school or nonprofit institution (e.g. tutorial center, charity) that has an education project in need of funding, please let me know. Post in this blog or email me. In the meantime, visit our website ( and tell everyone you know about it. We just launched the site so it's not completely done yet but the payment mechanism should be functional. If you encounter any problems let me know and I'll pass it on to the people who can take care of it.
