Charity Begins At Home

National network makes it easier for donors to give in their local communities

Nov. 21, 2010 - PRLog -- This holiday season, tax-exempt 501(c)(3) charities and individuals in need can look to Brag-A-Wish (BAW) for help. Utilizing a social impact model merged with over twenty years of traditional fundraising experience, BAW makes it easy for donors to log-on and make their donations from yard sales, excess store inventories, provide pro bono advice as well as financial resources.  

In 2009, according to the Chronicle of Philanthropy, Internet gifts rose by 5%.  Our service is positioned to become a leader in the current growth of online giving, stated founder of BAW, Simone Joye.  “Our innovative model is working to have a larger social impact by reaching a targeted audience of both offline and online givers. Matching donors to those in need has never been easier and the results can be seen by donors in their own community everyday,” states Joye.

A division of Atlanta-based AllWrite Communications, BAW members are provided with a “hand-up,” not a “hand-out.” Members are accountable for each donation and they must be helping in their own community in order to qualify. Membership is free and through an online profile at www.bragawish.org, potential members “brag” about the work they do, and make “a wish.”  

BAW currently accepts nonprofit memberships from 14 states (Texas, Nevada, Indiana, Idaho, Nebraska, South Dakota, Iowa, Montana, Wyoming and Vermont). Individuals may apply from anywhere in the US.  Donor and Members may also shop on BAW’s Community Market and find great partner deals from places such as Groupon, MetroPCS, ExtendedStay Hotels and Warner Bros. Studios.
