Last year, in the spirit of the holiday, Commtouch made a donation to a charitable organization on behalf of our business partners and friends. We considered many options and decided upon a very worthy organization that helps launch microbusinesses throughout the world.
In continuing with the tradition, we would like to make a similar donation this year. With the help of Charity Navigator, we have chosen four 4-star organizations and would like you, our partners and friends, to help choose the organization (or organizations) to which we will make our contribution. The organizations are: Books for Africa, Rare, The V Foundation and Vitamin Angels.
Scroll down for more information about the different organizations.
The organizations from which to choose are:
- Books for Africa – Books for Africa (BFA) collects, sorts, ships, and distributes books to children in Africa. Since 1988, BFA has shipped more than 20 million books to 45 African countries.
