Redwood City, Calif. – January 13, 2009 - Strengthening its commitment to helping nonprofit organizations tap into Care2’s millions of civically-active members in their online fundraising, advocacy and email marketing, Care2 proudly announced two new additions to its Nonprofit Services team.
Taking the reins as blogger-in-chief of Care2’s "Frogloop" website (www.frogloop.com) for nonprofit professionals is Allyson Kapin, founder and principal of consulting firm Rad Campaign and a blog columnist for Fast Company Magazine.
