Let's pray together: Some tips for financial aid and websites development


Hi everyone!!

Thank you for inviting me to this group… i can imagine that in this times, for many of us financial aid is one of our “big issues” to solve.

And as far I thing that the best way to receive starts by giving (and share) I would like to give you some tips and links that maybe can help your organizations

This is the organization that is helping me to develop my website Corresponsal de Paz, or Peace Correspondent ( ) they are fantastic people working to develop new technologies for social entrepreneurs and NGO’s
You can contact Ramon Bartomeus by mentioning me (Cristina Avila, from Mexico) his e-mail is: he is my personal angel in Barcelona, and I am sure he will try to help you
Maybe they could give you free technological service or, they could make you a very good price to help to develop your websites (normally, their fees are very accessible)

This website is only available in Spanish (sorry, but you can try translate the site) and actually, for now they are only accepting proposals in Spanish. They are offering financial aid to social entrepreneurs from all around the world (the only condition is to fill the application in Spanish) GO QUICKLY !!! because the close of the application is 01 June. I already made mine ;-) TRY!! AND GOOD LUCK!!!

This website is most of all for journalist who want to sell and publish their articles globally:

“By registering on to Beamups you can upload your news items - video and stills - ready to sell to newsrooms around the world. You keep your copyright and set your own price, increasing the chance of making multiple transactions around the world.
Beamups also welcomes you to the Beamups Campaign. The 10 content providers to upload the most content from now until 31 May 2009 will receive $500!” GO AHEAD FELLOWS!!

And again, thanks to welcome me in this group, let’s try to help each other.
