It's St. Patrick's Day, which means that we have some very talented people talking about all things 'green' in the nonprofit world. Here's what made this week's Carnival:
- Katya Andresen discusses why environmental campaigns should stop focusing on gloom and doom when trying to stir up interest.
- Green may be a nice buzzword, but Marianne Richmond shares why 'sustainable' is better.
- Nancy E. Schwartz is talking about nonprofits and plastic bags.
- The Chesapeake Bay Foundation makes its case on why green is good for the economy. This is also a good example of how a nonprofit can make its case in a letter to the editor.
- Want to know how to ask for a major gift? Read this story.
- Saving some green can be as important as going green, and Kivi Leroux Miller shows you just how far $1000 can go.
This was a great week at the Carnival, with lots of submissions. Next week, the Carnival will be at Nancy E. Schwartz's Getting Attention.
