I think I had mentioned this opportunity a while back, and I followed my own advice and joined Detroit4Detroit as a Citizen Philanthropist. The project I am supporting is one with ACCESS to install lighting in a SW Detroit neighborhood (Chadsey-Condon) and improve safety. It has been a bit of a slow start, but I am optimistic about reaching the $3,300 target within the three month period. Check out my project page here: http://www.citizeneffect.org/projects/detroit-access-lights-4-safety-shamsuddin
I have started to post some blogs on that site as well. You can see one I posted today showing the crime map of the Chadsey-Condon area - hundreds of crimes reported just since the beginning of the year. Help make the D safer and support this project!
In other news, to promote this initiative, I have signed up for Twitter as @CitizenSyed, so you might see some activity and ideas over there now as well.
