First off, I want to once again thank all of you that donated to the GAS Project last month.  Lauren Haney from Chicago gave a particularly generous contribution, and since she was the largest contributor to last month’s cause, I gave her the decision of picking this month’s charity. 

She’s chosen the Foundation for Sustainable Development, which is a nonprofit organization that works with volunteers, community based-organizations, and development groups to work toward a lasting change in Latin America, Africa, and Asia. 

Some of their current projects:

Improving Maternal Health in Jinja, Uganda

Microfinance Solutions in rural India

Environmental Education in Ciudad, Sandino, Nicaragua

Building Economic Opportunity for Women in La Plata, Argentina

Head over to the GAS Project if you want to throw down 25 cents – 1 dollar for this month’s cause.
