PandoProjects is a nonprofit with a new approach to tackling national and global challenges. Rather than offering solutions to problems like obesity and global warming, Pando simply empowers the American people to develop their own. We do this by offering online workspaces to help people start and run meaningful grassroots projects to fix problems within their own communities. These workspaces can be used to promote projects, raise money, organize events, manage volunteers and share experiences. We also offer mentorship to help project leaders along the way. Every project becomes a part of our central database, to ensure that these innovative, bottom-up solutions are documented and celebrated. By supporting citizen-run initiatives, we will develop leaders, nurture innovative solutions to global challenges, and help every-day Americans to rebuild, restore, and re-imagine our American communities. Every person has an issue that they are passionate about… we simply want to unleash their potential to change the world!
Pando is still in its early stages, prior to launch. This blog will document my process, musings, challenges, and milestones. I may also sometimes post videos of funny cats. I hope you enjoy!
