Catapult

[Note from editor: For the sake of keeping giving on our minds for the entire holiday season, we're going to highlight a non profit organization or specific good deed that has been done everyday until New Year's as part of our Real Estate Doers Make a Difference campaign]

Non Profit Highlight: Catapult

Catapult merges microfinance (which you all know I’m a huge fan of) and crowdfunding — with a focus on women.

Their mission statement:

We all believe in a gender equal world.

Obviously.

But more than 500 million girls and women will be denied the opportunity to take part in the next generation’s development.

This doesn’t have to be the reality. Organizations working for girls and women currently raise less than half the average amount raised by other nonprofits and charities.

Catapult can change that.

We’re combining the financial power and actions of people like you to help tackle gender inequality around the world.

My good friend Sloane clued me into Catapult a couple months ago.

We have until January 2 to reach our goal of $2,500 for Real Estate Doers Make a Difference (#REDMAD) — please take a minute and contribute $20 to Habitat for Humanity.
