1700 Farnam Street, Omaha, NE 68102 ~ www.redbasket.org/about/skilled-volunteers

Red Basket is an online, tax-deductible crowdfunding platform. Red Basket is for those who feel connected to their neighbors up the street and across the country. It’s for those who feel compelled to help but don’t necessarily have deep pockets. It’s for those who need help but don’t know quite how to ask for it. We connect people who need help with those who can give it. We’re putting a face on philanthropy and making giving more direct. We are looking for Skilled Volunteers; people with photography, video, and journalism experience who can help us make our stories compelling and concise.
