Web 2.0 philanthropy

Months ago I went looking for community-driven, Web 2.0 philanthropy. The posts are here and here (archive August 2006).

Here's a new one - advertising itself as "The World's First Web 2.0 Charity" - The RobinHood Fund lets the community do the donating. "The world's first" claim is bound to get hackles up - just what the people behind it* want. What do you think?

*No surprise, the whole thing is cause-related marketing for a "crowdsource" technology firm - Cambrian House.
