Wow...thank you for the back up TarBaby.
BA - I know you are passionate about organizations that support those in our society that need it most as I have witnessed this on another thread. So I will attempt to clarify, or at least defend my position.
I posted this particular post in THIS particular area because it is EVERYTHING ELSE. This is just "coffee talk". This community is not just a community of entreprenuers but of friends...I consider many of the other members friends...as such...I like to talk to my friends and get support from my friends. And as TarBaby mentioned, my startup is a nonprofit...and I strongly support the other nonprofits who missions are compatible with my own. To that end...I look to help others support those organizations that I support.
Furthermore, as business owners we are all (hopefully) looking for ways to be socially responsible. If your business would like the opportunity to show support and thus show social responsibility (based on business management standards, not personal or political standards)...this is a good opportunity.
That said, if Startup Nation and/or the majority of its members feels that this post is unwarranted or unwanted on their website...I am more than happy to discontinue such posts...and they can very easily remove this thread from their site. There will be no hard feelings and no love lost. This site and its members are valuable to me personally and in business and I will respect their decisions.
Thank you for your support.
