Happy Monday - have another video to share with you from our friends at "Movie Mondays" / 501 Videos.  This one is titled, "How a Small Team Can Make a Huge Impact on the World".

This week's video is about how the grandson of the famous Charles Lindbergh started a nonprofit XPrize Foundation, why they should've failed and how they succeeded.  It's a real good underdog story.  You can read the summary and watch the video here.

Movie Mondays:  How a Small Team Can Make a Huge Impact on the World
~ Chris Davenport

I'm a bit nervous sending this to you...

...not because of the content, but because of the length.  I hope it doesn't scare you off.  This week's video is the second longest episode I've ever sent out.  But I think it's well worth your time to watch the entire video.  There's a lot in it.  Plus, I think you'll enjoy watching it.

This week's video is an interview I had with Erik Lindbergh, grandson of the famous Charles Lindbergh.  Erik has been working in the nonprofit world for 25+ years.

In this video, Erik tells the unlikely story of the XPrize Foundation...how they started, why they should've failed, and how they succeeded.  It's a real good underdog story.

This is a video you may want to forward to your board members.  Erik talks about the role of board members and different ways they can help.

He also gives examples of some of the unique ways they were able to raise money.

As you'll see, I put the video on the Nonprofit Storytelling Conference website.  That's because storytelling was key to their success.
