Take Perspective. Win Up to $1,500.
How well do you know the people who will be on the receiving end of the good work you want to do? What are their strengths? What do they like about their community? What would they change? And do they want your help in creating that change? Getting to know the people who will benefit from your work is the first step to effective public service, allowing you to challenge your assumptions and transform altruism into high impact, culturally competent work.
Echoing Green and GOODmaker are teaming up to launch two challenges to help you better understand and build deeper relationship with members of the community you most want to serve.
The Two Challenges
A panel of judges will declare a $500 winner from the five top-voted submissions on the Take Perspective…Someone Else’s Challenge. Submit an idea here.

Submit an idea for one, or for both. And spread the word to your networks.
