There is a critical need for more real information and fewer “happy stories“. Recently I’ve seen what I’m hoping is a new trend of charities working to educate their donors. * Pepy Tours does a nice job with their blog Lessons I Learned. I appreciate the fact that Daniela delves into the issues surrounding voluntourism. I also respect that she is willing to admit her own organization’s mistakes and what they have learned from them. * Alive and Kicking recently wrote a good blog post discussing the pros and cons of BOGO (Buy One Give One) and how they’ve moved on to BOGO 2.0. I appreciate that they did not gloss over the issues or just tell pretty stories. I also liked their list of five recommendations for evaluating BOGO products at the end of the post.
What do you think about it?
