“Just be cool, drop f-bombs & embrace an unwavering faith in the power of
#nonprofits to help rebuild the economy & you’re there.”
More powerful updates from the inimitable Robert Egger, founder of the DC Central Kitchen, and the V3 Campaign … which has been reborn as the even more awesome, and far more powerful CForward (a PAC aimed at endorsing and supporting political candidates who have a strong platform for engaging the tenth of the economy known as the nonprofit sector):
The nonprofit sector employs around 10 million people.
The sector engages another 90 million people as volunteers.
Collectively, the sector controls about 10% of the GDP. In Texas, the nonprofit sector employs more people than the oil industry.
And yet — none of the politicians asking for our vote have ANY plan for how to engage us, our creativity, our passion, our entrepreneurial spirit . . .
Not YET, at least.
