'Nonprofit With Balls' Blog Profiled on Fast Company
In Silicon Valley, "unicorns" might refer to billion dollar startups, but on Nonprofit With Balls, a humor site about life in the nonprofit industry, that term refers to something more real, and more heroic: nonprofit workers. "These people are underpaid to work on emotionally challenging issues, and all with crappy chairs that they got off Craigslist," said site founder Vu Le. "We are like unicorns, imaginary creatures here to make the world better."
Such quips have made Nonprofit With Balls (site logo: a cartoon unicorn juggling lots of balls, of course) a reality check within the philanthropic field. "We need to own our awesomeness more," said Le, who speaks at numerous conferences around the country and was named one of Chronicle of Philanthropy’s 40 Under 40.
