Hunger/Homelessness

Nearly Naked Mile run at FGCU raises money for charity
November 1, 2010

Florida Gulf Coast University students showed a lot of skin and stripped down to the bare essentials Saturday in the main courtyard to raise money for charity. The Nearly Naked Mile, organized by FGCU’s chapter of Sigma Phi Epsilon, caused all of the almost-nudity. Students came wearing clothes they no longer wanted and then striped them off, creating an entire table’s worth of clothes in a pile at least two feet high that will be donated to Goodwill.

Toronto Community Foundation head discusses the organizations unique business model and being named "Outstanding Foundation" by the AFP Greater Toronto.

Living Cities, a philanthropic collaborative of 22 of the world's largest foundations and financial institutions, will do that Thursday when it announces $80 million in grants, loans and investments.

Nineteen urban centers competed for the money, but five won for programs that challenge conventional wisdom: Baltimore, Cleveland, Detroit, Newark and Minneapolis-St. Paul.
