Micro-Donations plans for iPhone

<i>“Micro-fundings for a better world”</i> is the motto of the new trend of <b>Micro-Donations</b> in the non-profit world. Small associations and non-profit entities are supported by companies selling applications in the Apple <b>AppStore</b>, leading to a positive flow of economical support to make our world better.

<p>As it's happening in the <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Microfinance">micro-credit</a>, the funding with small amounts of money allows the development of small size projects, that are usually excluded from traditional funding entities.
Official statistics shows that <b>success</b> in reduced dimension projects is much higher than in big projects, where a considerable part of the investment is lost in bureaucracy, structure management, and costs not directly connected with the pursued aim. On the other side, in small scale projects, the presence of active volunteers, the need of smaller fundings to implement actions, and the smaller amounts of money involved prevents potential temptations for improper money usage.</p>
<p>The trend of Micro-Donations in iPhone applications is recently begun by Zirak s.r.l., an italian company founded by professionals coming from environmental activism background that has been supporting in last 10 years several non-profit projects in Europe, Africa, South America and South Asia, both social and environmental.</p>
<p>From all the mobile software produced by Zirak, a <b>10% donation</b> is given to social and environmental projects developed by small non-profit entities in the whole world. <a href="http://easytrails.iphone.zirak.it">EasyTrails GPS</a>, one of the best GPS applications for outdoor sports, specifically targets environmental projects.</p>
<p>Micro-donations support small projects that have a big impact in our world.</p>

I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
