Nancy Jo Craig’s Lifetime Achievement Award In Nonprofit Computer Refurbishment

Tech Soup Blog

Each year the International Computer Refurbishers Summit awards a lifetime achievement award. This year the award went to Nancy Jo Craig who runs the nonprofit Capital Area Corporate Recycling Council (CACRC) in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. After she co-founded the Foundation For Friends of Nature in Bolivia, a million acres of natural habitat were put in to public trust. They persuaded her to run the place long enough to get it back on its feet.

Have Fun - Do Good

I think some of the folks who are listening may have had a vision for something, an idea that they thought would make the world a better place.

Women's Global Green Action Network: An Interview with Melinda Kramer

One of their programs is the Reality Tours, where they bring groups of individuals to regions to look at the social justice issues and other pressing issues, that really color the experience and the culture of a place. So our first exchange that we did with Global Exchange was called "Transformative Advocacy in Bolivia." What was really missing and what we could fill through a structured place and space, and that would be Women's Global Green Action Network.

The Global Fund for Women: An Interview with Kavita Ramdas

Have Fun - Do Good

She has been the recipient of many awards, including Fast Company's 2007 Social Capitalist Award, and the League of Women Voters' Women Who Could Be President Award. I think my favorite example of that is a women's group from the highlands of Bolivia who wrote to us maybe seven or eight years ago. We have seen that in other places as well such like in Rwanda, and in the Middle East and numerous other places.
