How To Give $100K To A Nonprofit Without Spending A Dime

Make fun of the internet all you want.  Yes, people spend way too much time watching cat videos on YouTube, liking trivial pages on Facebook and teenagers barely need to speak or make eye contact thanks to social networking.  It is easy to poke fun at the Internet and blame it for all the evils of the world, but...

This is Limitless Good - so you can check your negativity at the virtual door!  We believe that people really do want to Do Good and yes, social media and the internet can be a big part of that.  Need proof?  How about this...

Take A Free Online Course on Giving With Purpose And Give $100K To Charity

The totally awesome...and totally free... online education site, EdX, is offering an online course that starts on March 26th, 2014, called Giving With Purpose.  Here is a super quick video that explains the course...



Holy Crap!  I double dare you to call the internet a useless, time wasting tool now.  An online course that teaches about Giving to Charities - completely free and open to anyone in the world with access to the internet.   Of course, this is not just theory and teaching, the class will giveaway $100,000 to deserving charities.  Boom!  This is what we call Doing Good!

What Exactly Do You Learn in Giving With Purpose?

Here is the full Description of the 7 week online course...

"The goal of this non-credit course is to prepare students to become more purposeful givers and engage more effectively with nonprofit organizations in their communities. Students will learn how to identify high-performing nonprofit organizations and fulfill their personal goals for giving. Six compact classes are comprised of lectures, interactive exercises, group discussions, and interviews with prominent philanthropists Warren Buffett, Doris Buffet, Cal Ripken, Jr., Soledad O’Brien, Ben Cohen and Jerry Greenfield (Ben and Jerry), and Tom Werner. Students will also be invited to nominate nonprofit organizations in their communities to receive real-dollar grants. A minimum of $100,000 will be distributed to the organizations ranked highest by students using a peer-review selection process based on course concepts."

Not Sure About the Quality of Online Courses?

I know, most people hear the phrase "online course" or "online university" and they think of some fly-by-night online school that is staffed by monkeys.  Oh and not those really smart monkeys who can read, we're talking about the dumb monkeys.  Anyway, we digress, EdX is absolutely NOT this type of online university.

Here is brief description of EdX, who is offering Giving With Purpose...

"EdX is a non-profit created by founding partners Harvard and MIT whose mission is to bring the best of higher education to students of all ages anywhere in the world, wherever there is Internet access. EdX's free online MOOCs are interactive and subjects include computer science, public health, and artificial intelligence."
