I've heard that Ladywell Designs Ltd, the Tweed bag company was set up and is owned by Elaine McGonigle, the former Fundraising Director for the new pyjamas campaign of the sick kids hospital in Edinburgh. She has a track record of poor performance and misconduct in other high profile jobs, and when challenged/'suspended counter claims harassment. I'd never buy from this company if its be case.
I think it would be a great job for me because I love marathons and I love planning things down to the very last detail. I don't know how to get started though.
What job fields are there or are there any helpfull websites?
What does a director do in the process of making a film and what does a producer, power scale, atributes etc
I'd like all the information needed to become an athletic director. whats the best degree to get? where to start to look for a job? Any information that would help me out.
I recently became a member to BOMF (Back On My Feet) which is an organization where people run basically to help homeless people get jobs and get "back on their feet." I am running in some races across the country to raise money, but i cannot think of which organization i will give the money to. I will be raising probably $1500 (i hope) and they would like us all to think of somewhere to give our money!! Just wondering if any of yall had any suggestions..Thanks :)
Recently the president of the board of directors of our community theatre group resigned. It was not a paid position and the theatre is a non-profit. Has anyone made a living from community theatre? I currently have a full time job and two small children, otherwise I would consider taking over. No one else on the board wants to run it. This is an elected position with two year terms, but I could convince the rest of the board to make it a paid position if I devoted my full time to it. But would there be enough money to pay me a salary? The theatre is in a suburb of Rochester NY. We raise funds for our productions and schedule four per year. I wonder if it is worth a try.
I need a list of jobs connected with the tourist industry. I've got a few but i need 30 overall. Any ideas?
I've been fundraising for and/or running several political campaigns (Campaign Manager) and would like to get a position as a Director of Development or Executive Director for a non-profit. I'm having a hard time making the change even though I have a proven track record as a good fundraiser. I lost my last election ( it was a bitter federal one). Any hints on making the switch? I'm a new father and want a job that the security is based on my performance, not what a candidate said on the campain trail.
Also I would like to know what kinds of community service/ volunteer jobs there are in the world.
There is a list of job responsibilities, but no list of qualifications that they are looking for. Here is their ad:

Should I email them and ask them for a complete job description and hope that it includes the qualifications they are looking for? Or should I just email and ask about qualifications? I have 1.5 years of marketing experience, but I don't have a degree of any kind so that's what I am worried about.
I am going to be the president of my school Key Club and in the past we haven't done as much as we could to raise money so I was wondering how to make people in my club get involved. All the kids just sign up to put it down on college applications and don't participate. What should I do to get them to want to help out?
There's so many flimflam charities where the executives live the highlife and still call their organizations "nonprofit", they throw fancy charity balls with fancy dinners and dancing and I think 0.1 pennies out of a dollar trickles through to the needy.
How can you tell what is what? Thanks and Happy Holidays!
I'm really good at English but I don't want to be a teacher. I love debating topics, hearing and talking about problems going on, writing, etc. I don't want to be a teacher or writer. Help?

What are the different things you can become in the ballet world, other than a professional dancer? What are some colleges you can go to major in studies of dance, and stuff like that? Thanks much !
For those of you working within such industries, how did you get in the "door"?
I like the arts, literature and sciences. Any suitable careers? I'm thinking of something enjoyable but also with a decent pay.
I work for a small arts company right now and make about $28k as an assistant. I don't want to stay in this job much longer and am wondering where to go next. What percentage of jobs in nonprofit make over $100k? I'm thinking about going into fundraising or marketing as a director.
I am considering making a donation to the Paralyzed Veterans of America. It is a modest donation, but every bit helps. I have had money given to this charity in my name in the past. Before I sent the check, however, I wanted to do some research to see if this is a worthy charity or not.
I first went to charity watch thinking I could get some information. It turns out that you have to pay them a $50 membership fee to view their charity guide. Immediately a red flag went up. For an organization that claims to be on the side of charity, it feels like a shakedown to be charged for their information. After all, that's $50 their members could be giving to charity. What if they're shaking down charities for good ratings and giving bad ones to those who won't play ball?
I then went to charity navigator, which gives several chapters the PVA low grades and highlight pie charts that show most of their expenses are spent on fundraising and administration. This doesn't necessarily mean a charity is evil or up to no good; it could simply just mean that they have high operating costs and maybe not getting many contributions.
I then go to some websites that have reviews written by individuals of the Paralyzed Veterans of America. Many reviews were written by donors or potential donors and a vast majority criticized the charity, but a lot of this criticism was based on information from charity watch or charity navigator. There were a few reviews from people claiming to have dealt with PVA in person and from paralyzed veterans who sought assistance from this charity. Most of these have generally favourable reviews of the charity.
I don't know whom to believe. Can we trust so-called charity watchdogs just because they claim to be experts?--especially when they charge for their service!? Is PVA being treated unfairly? Does anybody have past experience with the PVA? If so, please share. Thanks for taking the time to read this. I just want to make sure I am donating wisely.
