When I came across the list of Indian Brands & Businesses on Twitter by Santosh Maharshi , I found it very impressive. It was just the thing I was searching for when I was looking to connect with potential sponsors quickly for a fund-raising event. After some time , I got thinking. Won’t it be nice if we can similar lists for other things as well besides Brands and Businesses in India? For instance, a list of non-profits in India on Twitter?
So here's the list of tweeting non-profits/NGOs/volunteer organizations/initiatives that I could find (Thanks to Maya and others for their contribution to this list):
- @ICICIFoundation *
- @mamMovies *
The TweepML quick reference list that will enable you to follow all of them or a selective few is here.
I will be updating this list frequently through the Twitter List feature here. May not on this blo though. So for the latest updated version, please check my Twitter Indian nonprofit list.
For now, am keeping the definition pretty simple - any organization that works for a social benefit without profit as their main motive. And there's very little/minimal due diligence that I do before adding them to this list - just relying on what their website/tweet says - but I realize that as this list grows, that will have to change. Obviously, we wouldn't want anybody to get a free ride in the name of non-profit. Mulling on that...
Meanwhile, iIf you would like to add any other non-profit to the above list or remove inappropriate ones, tweet me on @adropofwisdom or leave a comment below and I will update the list!
Lets make a difference, one step at a time.
