Brands aren’t the only ones who are jumping on the Pinterest bandwagon, charities and nonprofits are also grabbing up accounts and pinning away.  Charities and nonprofits are looking to add interest and maybe even garner more awareness for their causes through the use of Pinterest.  While the use of Pinterest has generally been the social network of choice for women, with 70% of the users being female, more and more people are signing on to pin their favorite posts, products and now, causes.

    I recommend (and work with) the Gen YOUth Foundation, improving child health and welfare. Its main program is Fuel Up to Play 60, an in-school program offered at no cost to empower students to choose nutrient-rich foods first and get at least 60 minutes of physical activity every day. http://pinterest.com/genyouth/
