PART ONE:As you may know, there is a lot of controversy surrounding corporate philanthropy and non-profit organizations in today’s economy. Several organizations and/or individuals are being accused or actually convicted of embezzlement, money laundering, etc. by taking money from non-profit organizations and putting them into personal funds or hiding money from illegal activities in non-profit funds. Do you think this negative attention will change the way corporations invest in non-profit organizations in the future? If so, how? If not, why not?

Charity Navigator is one of the best charity watchdog organizations out there and a lot of people and organizations rely on its work to guide them as they decide where to make donations.  Please go to their website (Charity Navigator) and look up the following three charities which by their names tell us that they do the same kind of work.  You may have to register to get deeper into the site but its free.  Take a look first at how many stars they rated each one of these then dig a little more to see some key indicators such as what percentage of donations goes directly to program operations.

State a few facts that you noticed when you looked these up and mention any major similarities and any major differences.

Then look up one non-profit that you are familiar with, where you have either volunteered your time or made a financial donation (e.g. Feeding South Florida, Susan G. Komen for the Cure, March of Dimes, etc.).  

I am looking for you to state your opinion; what do you conclude from this bit of research you just did?

Finally, please comment on at least one of your classmates’ posts as well.  I would like to see some good back and forth discussions going for full credit

PART TWO:For this discussion, I want you all to address these points (no word min or max)

1.) Where does ‘La Bastarda’ take place? Look it up on a map. Is there a history of colonialism there?

2.) How might this history affect the languages spoken, the values of our characters, and ideas of what is and isn’t acceptable? 

3.) Respond to one other classmate
