Boston.com Launches Community Channel

The portal site for the Boston Globe has introduced a new database enabling users to find community projects in the local area.

Entitled the Do Good channel, the new site allows people to search for information about nonprofit initiatives in the city and outlying areas.

Visitors can look for relevant projects using subject categories such as health or animals, or they can search by location or by level of participation.

They can also share their results with others via sharing sites like Facebook and the bookmarking service del.icio.us.

Charitable and nonprofit organisations can add their profiles for free to the Do Good database and almost 700 have signed up so far.

In a press statement, vice president of product Bob Kempf said: “Introducing the Do Good channel will make the connection between Boston.com and our visitors even stronger.

“The section adds a new dimension of high personal value to the Boston.com user experience.”

The channel is powered by the national network good2gether.
