I just posted a great event on the Calendar. The event is called Bike/Hike for Water and it benefits the Christ and Saint Luke's Episcopal Church's efforts to collect donations for building and digging wells in Haiti.

Among his recommendations are the focus on local community-wide socioeconomic issues and providing services that can create revenue streams beyond ads alone.
