Camp Grounded

http://campgrounded.org

Camp Grounded is where grown-ups go to unplug, getaway and be kids again. Trade in your computer, cell phone, Instagrams, clocks, schedules and work-jargon for an off-the-grid weekend of pure unadulterated fun. Together we'll create a community where money is worth little... and individuality, self expression, friendship, freedom and memories are valued most.

SixDegrees.org

http://www.sixdegrees.org

You've probably heard of the Six Degrees concept. Any one person (including me, Kevin Bacon) is connected to any other person through six or fewer relationships, because it's a small world. SixDegrees.org is about using this idea to accomplish something good. It's social networking with a social conscience.
Through this website, you can support your favorite charities by donating or creating fundraising badges — as well as check out the favorite causes of other people, including celebrities.  You can also pay it forward with Good Cards® - gift cards for charity that can be redeemed as a donation to more than 1 million charities.
