About the "Charity Starts at a Joomla Homepage" Contest:
During this season of giving and goodwill toward our neighbors, Joomlashack's team sought a way to support important organizations that do good work to make the world a better place.
Across the globe, there are thousands of deserving charities that feed the hungry, house the homeless, heal the sick and tackle the world's social, environmental and economic injustices. Joomlashack.com knows this because members of our team have founded, led and built websites for several effective NGOs here in the U.S. and in the UK. While Joomlashack.com is a for-profit venture, serving our communities -- online and at home -- is a core value and life-long endeavor of our team members and company.
Because Joomlashack.com believes in the power of the web to build and improve communities, we also believe that every charity needs a commanding web presence that communicates its strongest case for broad and generous support.
Successful organizations rely on communities of volunteers, donors, leaders and supporters to achieve their missions. While not a charity, Joomlashack.com is no different. We depend on our community of customers, forum posters, and users to be successful, too; a community of over 30,000 people across the planet. In the season of giving, this contest is one small way for us to give back.
Now, Joomlashack.com is asking its community to help us bring attention to five effective and essential charities, and to offer one of them much-needed attention and resources.
Nominate a deserving and eligible charity today.
To be selected as a finalist, each nominated organization must meet the following criteria:
1. Registered and lawful charitable organization capable of giving a charitable tax exemption to donors (In the US this means 501c3 eligible).
2. An annual budget of less than $1 million.
3. Attempts successful programs in support of a positive, peaceful and charitable mission.
To nominate an organization, please visit http://www.joomlashack.com.
