  3. @juliacarriew OMG @tarintowers and I just got enraged about them a few weeks ago. They sent someone to the Hack the Housing Crisis event.

  4. @markasaurus @juliacarriew I wish I'd written about it more at the time when we could have quashed its moral parade with disgust.

  7. @juliacarriew @markasaurus I'm old enough to remember when we had government programs to pay for people's rent and food! Oh well the future.

  9. @juliacarriew I run 3 yo nonprofit. It's a nightmare. Happy to discuss pros/ cons of various biz structures. I understand @rosical's choice.

  10. @juliacarriew @markasaurus For profit, nonprofit, who cares? This just proves my point: I don't need money; I need reciprocating respect.

  11. @6other @juliacarriew they should be more upfront about being for-profit when they present their work, for one thing. MANY people care.

    @juliacarriew @markasaurus They took the most dehumanizing thing about govt assistance and made it into their whole business. Yuck.

  14. @markasaurus @juliacarriew It's VC; how is that not up front? It's about time someone gave United Way a run for their bloody money.

  15. @juliacarriew @sarahjeong Handup is a B-corp; social good is in its mission. Perhaps more than nonprofits whose CEOs take home millions.

  16. @6other @juliacarriew they don't talk about venture capital when they present their mission. This is the first I've heard of that aspect.

  17. @tarintowers @markasaurus @juliacarriew the whole site is so dystopian. Has a v "buy-a-person" feel to it. Poor people as pets. Who are we?

  20. @juliacarriew Did it need to? Fundraising agencies are always for-profit, aren't they? They definitely make tons more than they distribute.

  21. @juliacarriew @markasaurus “NOWHERE MENTIONS IT’S FOR-PROFIT”: says “public benefit corp,” “startup,” “company,” isn’t it pretty clear?

  22. @tmccormick @juliacarriew & nowhere on their homepage does it mention VC or the business model. "HandUp is a direct giving system."

    @tmccormick @juliacarriew you have to read to the bottom of the FAQ to find the details about their corporate structure.

  23. @markasaurus @juliacarriew do you object to @HandUp's #bcorps model, or w/ for-profits being in that space, or just how site presents it?
