Inaugural @NPBaton Reaches Halfway Mark


It’s no secret that our team loves Instagram and photos:

So naturally, it’s been a delight for us to host the Nonprofit Baton and watch it grow. The NP Baton is a collaborative photo project that lives on Instagram and Tumblr, and shows how amazing (and fulfilling!) work in the nonprofit world can be. Nonprofits from all over the country have taken over the NP Baton Instagram account, and given the world a glimpse into a day in the life of their organization.

The project kicked off on March 1 with our very own Dawn Crawford, and if you’ve been following the NP Baton, you’ve seen some pretty inspirational images during the first half of the month. Projects like these help remind us why we love the work that we do.

A huge thanks to all the organizations that have contributed to the NP Baton so far! If you missed the sign-up for March’s baton, good news! The project has been so well-received that we’re opening up dates in April, click here to sign up.
