It’s the Last Day of the JobRaising ChallengeMarch 1, 2013 by Sally Farhat Kassab
The JobRaising Challenge, our initiative in partnership with the Huffington Post, CrowdRise and McKinsey & Company to help job-creating nonprofits raise money and awareness, ends tonight at 11:59 p.m.
The Challenge has already resulted in 3,500 donations from across the country, with 80 percent of those being under $100.
It received a mention Thursday from CNN anchor Wolf Blitzer. Arianna was on CNN discussing another topic. She argued that the focus of the economic debate should be on creating jobs, not European-style austerity. After the recent divisive partisan debates, Wolf congratulated Arianna on the JobRaising initiative’s success, calling the project “something that we can all agree on.”
