Clinton Global Initiative -- MyCommitment.org (update)

September 28, 2007

The CGI folks have announced that the MyCommitment.org site, which they launched on Wednesday, has been visited by 40,000 people who, collectively, have commmitted 200,000 hours of volunteer time and more than $130,000 to projects and initiatives on one of the four CGI tracks (education, energy & climate change, global health, and poverty reduction). Amazing.

Clinton's people have also announced that, in the coming year, CGI will be launching CGI-U, an effort to expand the initiative's efforts to college campuses. The idea is to have a CGI annual event on a single college campus and to Webcast it to college campuses aroud the country. The inaugural CGI-U event will be held, in 2008, at Tulane University in New Orleans, because, as Clinton just said in announcing the event, "We're not done there." 

A housekeeping note: I'll be posting a Q&A with Maya Ajmera, president of the Global Fund for Children, later today.
