Social Entrepreneurship: Water Edition

From yesterday's Fresh, Inc.:
From social networking to social giving. When we caught up with Michael Birch last year, he and his wife had just made a handsome little profit selling their social networking site Bebo to AOL for $850 million. In the interview, Birch told us that he was looking to dedicate more time to social entrepreneurship. Turns out over the last six months, Birch and two others have been building, the website for the popular non-profit charity:water, TechCrunch reports. Since its launch yesterday, the site has raised more than $7,000.
Incidentally, I really liked this short update from Steve Case: So cool to be walking through "Water" exhibit at Field Museum and see @PlayPumps featured!
