All For Good is the latest initiative by Google to bring volunteerism to the next level. Many organizations offer community service, but the problem is that it takes much time and effort to find all these organizations across many sources. All For Good helps to ease this problem by providing a search platform for users to help you find these volunteer activities within their community as well as share these events with their friends. We liked this initiative as it is a great open and free platform for people to find volunteer activities and for organizations to reach out to them. The ability to connect with social networking as well as search also makes All For Good a good model on how Web 2.0 can improve charity. What is your take on All For Good: be sure to comment and tell us.
