I hope this doesn't turn into one of those nonprofit will o' the wisps. We (funders) always undercapitalize these things. Little or no money for marketing, communications, general buzz-building. My prayers are with Audrey, but I think it'll take the power of prayer.

This sounds like more meetings, Glauco. 500 characters in search of a funder.

Amen. it will take God to strip people of little personal agendas into the main focus of creating change .

Kudos to Audrey and Robert Egger and others for stepping out there. In our sector we do so much pooh-poohing of folks willing to take risks. If folks aren't willing to embrace what they're trying to do, at least don't take potshots from the sidelines. Thanks to White Courtesy Telephone for covering this.

Thanks, Chuck, for your comment. It's a great risk for Audrey Alvarado and Robert Egger. Audrey in particular has to fundraise for this behemoth, and that makes her job of raising money for her own organization all the more difficult. There are always "opportunity costs," as we call them in the biz.

I heard recently that the Nonprofit Congress passed the "100 Town Hall meetings mark" (click here for more information), so there's been strong support from people inside the sector.
