Your organization or cause -- what are you passionate about?

I work full-time for an animal rights non-profit, our mission is to end the use of animals in science through, advocacy, education, and alternatives. We don't just say stop using animals in testing we help fund the creation of alternatives to animal testing. We also have a lending library for students who don't want to dissect animals for all education levels. I've also done freelance work for a feral cat organization in south Florida, and also for an organization that helps support no-kill shelters and sanctuaries.

Have you used technology for social change? If not, do you have plans/ideas/dreams about how you want to use it?

In the past our organization had used Convio for advocacy and sending emails, it was a great system. We recently switched to Blackbaud's Sphere recently in hopes of better integration with RaiserEdge. We use MailerMailer, and ConstantContact for sending emails for some of our programs. When we used Convio we used Network for Good to collect online donations.

What cool examples of technology for social change have you encountered?

I'm a big fan of Convio, and although I've never used it Salsa (Democracy in Action) looks like a great advocacy/email tool.

Introduction

I work for a national animal rights organization based in Jenkintown, PA. I am the graphic artist/website coordinator.
