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. 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. Places like TechSoup and the National Cristina Foundation put out the word that donated computers were badly needed in Louisiana, and they came by the truckload.

Using Photography to Change the World: An Interview with Paola Gianturco

Have Fun - Do Good
