    Cited organizations
    Nonprofits, non-governmental organizations, academic institutions and other not-for-profit initiatives cited in The Last Virtual Volunteering Guidebook, either in the chapters or in an appendix, as involving online volunteers, or as using the Internet in significant ways to communicate with and support volunteers, or as being early supports and promoters of virtual volunteering. Please note that this is in no way a comprehensive listing of all organizations that involve online volunteers (the number of such is in the thousands). Press representatives and bloggers wanting to write geographic-specific articles about virtual volunteering are encouraged to contact the book's authors for story leads.
