All of the projects supported by The Carlton Fund meet the following criteria:
1. They provide internet resources to groups who either lack access to those resources elsewhere, or the resources cost more than many of these individuals in these groups can afford.
2. The projects are not income generating. Which means any revenue derived from ads or any other monetisation method are insufficient to cover the basic operational expense of the project (site hosting, upkeep, maintenance, etc.)
3. They are free and open to anyone without fees of any kind.
Charity of the week: Compassion International
Compassion International exists as a Christian child advocacy ministry that releases children from spiritual, economic, social and physical poverty and enables them to become responsible, fulfilled Christian adults.
Founded by the Rev. Everett Swanson in 1952, Compassion began providing Korean War orphans with food, shelter, education and health care, as well as Christian training.
Today, Compassion helps more than 1.2 million children in 26 countries.
Camp Barnabas started with the simple dream of a young girl with cancer, it now serves over 1,300 campers each summer around the United States. A place for children who have intellectual or physical challenges and/or chronic illnesses to be shown the love of Christ. A place for children who cannot attend a typical summer camp. Camp Barnabas is not typical, it is an incredible place where people come to just be kids at camp, a place where they are participants, not observers, in life.
