Respectfully Submitted,

Internet Users in Mexico, a member of INTUG, and involved with digital
inclusion, access to the Internet and IT, making technology available
for development.

American Red Cross, a non-profit/philanthropic organization and one of
approximately 180 member national societies of the International
Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies.  The American Red
Cross shelters, feeds and provides emotional support to victims of
disasters; supplies nearly half of the nation's blood; teaches
lifesaving skills; provides international humanitarian aid; and supports
military members and their families. The Red Cross is a charitable
organization - not a government agency - and depends on volunteers and
the generosity of the American public to perform its mission. For more

The Church of God in Christ, Inc. is one of the oldest and largest
Holiness-Pentecostal denominations in the world, with an estimated
membership of more than 12,000 churches and six million people in
fifty-seven nations across the world. 

Goodwill Industries International is a network of 180 community-based,
independent agencies in the United States, Canada, and 13 other
countries. One of the nation's top five most valuable and recognized
nonprofit brands as well as a leading social services enterprise,
Goodwill generates opportunities for people to achieve economic
stability and build strong families and vibrant communities by offering
job training programs, employment placement services and other
community-based programs for people who have disabilities, lack
education or job experience, or face other challenges to finding
employment . To pay for its programs, Goodwill sells donated clothes and
other household items in more than 2,300 retail stores and online at
shopgoodwill.com <http://www.shopgoodwill.com/> . Local Goodwill
agencies also build revenue and create jobs by contracting with
businesses and government to provide a wide range of commercial
services, including packaging and assembly, food service preparation,
and document imaging and shredding. More than 1.5 million people in the
United States and Canada benefit from Goodwill's career services.
Goodwill channels 84 percent of its revenues directly into its programs
and services.

YMCAs, which serve 21 million people each year, including nearly 10

in 10,000 communities across the country: nurturing affordable child
