So, at Giving Children Hope http://www.gchope.org/, we exist on non-profit partnerships. As a matter of fact, we almost never do a project that isn't a partnership. Basically, we want to work ourselves out of a job. If we aren't doing that, well, we just aren't doing our jobs. I appreciate this about my workplace. Sometimes it scary, especially in a weakened economy where we should be fearing other non-profits since they are "competitors" for donor dollars. But in reality, I don't want to compete for donor dollars, I just want to make a difference. When you don't fear others as a competitor but rather see them as a partner, well, you just might make a real difference!
