Thanks for this, Stacie - glad to know that these examples exist. As I sit here I am listening to All Things Considered on NPR, which just ran a letter from a listener about why he/she was not giving to victims of the cyclone - basically, out of concern that the money won't get where it is needed. In this situation, perhaps more than ever, those trying to get funds to rebuild and recovery efforts need to get the news out that doing so is possible.

Lucy -- brilliant post and you bring up a good point. I am the Director of Consumer Marketing at Network for Good and quickly wanted to chime in (late sorry).

At Network for Good we love tickers in general; SixDegrees.org has a running one, our holiday homepage always does and we use them most often with our partner campaigns.

On our disaster pages for Myanmar and China Earthquake, we included a charity badge that displays some of the donations, but in this case it was a challenge to accurately display totals for the respective efforts with a ticker since many of the charities that people supported overlapped and designations needed to be examined for donations through our site and partner websites. I will share that we have processed ~$215K for China and ~$150K for Myanmar.

Down the road, we would welcome an opportunity to share our data in one centralized location.
