Nonprofits spend all of their time doing good, but not always looking good. Imagine how much good they could do if they looked good as well? Marketers, designers and developers, how powerful an opportunity to use your professional skills use to help nonprofits grow? 

These are the ideas that led to the creation of 48in48 and we need your help to impact the local community of nonprofit organizations in your local area.
